brand strategy + photo



I was a full time marketing student and freelance photographer in college when I realized that most of my creative peers were taking odd jobs or running errands to get by, rather than aligning their creative skills with paying gigs.

Upon realizing there was no platform to bridge the gap between creative college freelancers and employers seeking young, creative & flexible talent, bistara was born.



With no initial brand concept, name or story, I crafted the bistara narrative from the ground up. 

The result was a dynamic brand, personalized as a daring leader and innovator - a collective of creative rebels, breaking stereotypes & redefining the modern workforce. 

All content was produced by creative college freelancers. The brand identity was designed by Jessica.
