MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - Talenthouse, the leading platform for
creative collaboration, today announced that Beats by Dr. Dre, Naomi
Campbell, Nokia and adidas were among the Creative Invites with the aim to
discover new talent, design new products and create original content. They
are among major artists and brands who have embraced the Talenthouse vision
to enable emerging artists from all disciplines around the world to secure
recognition and compensation.
Unique to the platform is the "Creative
Invite" -- where an artist or brand invites the Talenthouse community
to collaborate on a professional piece of work.
Invites provide opportunities for emerging artists throughout the world
to shortcut the usual career path by collaborating with established artists
or brands and gaining recognition and compensation for their work.
Talenthouse, unlike many other sites, protects the artists' interests and
therefore does not take an ownership position in any of the artwork
In each sponsored Creative Invite funds will be divided between all the
artists who participate. One artist will be selected to work directly with
the hosting artist or brand. The Talenthouse community and the
participating artists individual peers are involved in determining the best
work. However, the final winner is being selected by the inviting artist or

-- adidas, one of the world's most
iconic sports and lifestyle brands is inviting designers from the
Talenthouse community to customize a pair of adidas iD2 goggles to be worn
by Olympic athletes participating in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
The winner designers will be sent several pairs of the iD2 goggles as the

onto the goggles which will then be worn by athletes during the Olympics
and featured on the adidas eyewear website.

mobile communications, is looking for an outstanding videographer with an
