XR Bazaar Augmented, virtual and mixed reality portfolio
The Lenslist platform focuses on the development of solutions in augmented reality, virtual reality and Mixed Reality has recently set up a new space called XR Bazaar. This space created in February 2023 gathers all the creators and agencies specialized in the conception of augmented reality filters in order to facilitate the access to companies interested in a project.
Why did Lenslist decide to launch XR Bazaar?
Design platforms already existed before Lenslist launched XR Bazaar, but they were too saturated, which hindered accessibility and prevented designers from standing out. Lenslist wanted to create this platform in order to centralise questions and requests from brands, as it often received requests for projects instead of the designers.
XR Bazaar has solved this by creating a platform entirely dedicated to creators of virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality content. This space also democratises the recruitment and job search process for extended reality (XR) creators who often had difficulty finding a place in this field.
The interest for XR Bazaar and for the creators
Without a sufficient supply of portfolios from XR designers, there would be fewer and fewer projects submitted by customers. Without clients and projects, XR Bazaar would lose its usefulness and be forced to close its platform.
It is therefore essential that designers publish new content on a regular basis to enhance their portfolio and attract new projects to add to their portfolio. This will allow clients to see a wide range of their work and be more likely to offer a contract.
What you can do on XR Bazaar
- Create a portfolio
This allows designers to group all their creations on one page and thus be more visible to brands and potential customers.
- Highlighting the best projects
On XR Bazaar the order of XR creations counts! Creators can show off their best creations and showcase all their XR filter creation skills.
- Finding collaborators
Agencies such as Filter Maker can also find collaborators more easily for the realisation of a project thanks to XR Bazaar.
- Attracting more customers
With XR Bazaar XR designers can stand out from the competition and attract more customers.
What is the difference between a designer Premium and a designer Ambassador ?
The opportunities for designers on XR Bazaar are numerous. By working for Lenslist and representing the new portfolio platform, they can spend Ambassador and be among the first profiles to appear on the creators page.
For designers who do not want to work directly for Lenslist and therefore cannot benefit from the profile AmbassadorA second possibility is available to them: the Premium. As its name suggests, in exchange for a fixed subscription fee, creators who use it appear on the first page and thus get more visibility.
How does XR Bazaar see the year 2023?
Since the launch of the platform in February 2023, XR Bazaar has succeeded in reaching its first goal: to gather more than 1,000 portfolios in order to attract more brands and marketers. XR Bazaar has therefore come up with challenges for the creators already on the platform. In March, all those who created a portfolio and completed the challenges were awarded badges and points which then allowed them to rank higher in the search results.
Currently, users only have access to the beta version of the site. According to the platform, the official launch may begin in April allowing anyone to search for designers, developers and agencies based on their pricing, location, skills and more.
For June, the platform wants to launch job boards with the aim of having at least 50 offers by the end of August. This feature will allow users to search for a job on the platform or post ads.
