Creating a profile.
Sign up to Creativepool couldn't be easier - we just need a few pieces of basic information to get your profile up and running. Once you've entered your basic information you can start uploading your images and videos and linking to all of the collaborators involved in each project.
I haven't received a confirmation email.
In some cases your confirmation might appear in your Junk Folder. If you've checked here and still can't see an email from Creativepool, try resending by logging into your profile and resend using the pop-up on the top left. If you're still having problems, get in touch with us.
How do I create a project / upload work?
It’s really quick and easy to upload your projects.
Login to your account and select Manage Projects / Company Projects from your profile dropdown.
Choose to create a new project, or you can edit your older projects. Give your project a Title, Date, Description, and Tags.
You can also connect to all of the people and companies that collaborated with you on the project by entering their detais on the right hand side. If they're on Creativepool, they'll pop up when you start to type. If not you can send them an email notification that they have been linked to a project.
Connections and Follows.
Connections and Follows allow you to interact with the people and companies you know and love. When you Follow a person or company you will see their updates in your Home Page.
As an individual you can connect to other members on Creativepool and Follow companies. As a company you can connect to both companies and individuals.
Connecting to a company or individual allows you to message that member through Creativepool.
To unfollow a member or company, simply click the ‘Following’ button.
Why can I no longer connect to members?
Depending on the type of membership you have, your connections may be limited. A standard account includes 100 connection credits.
A connection credit is used when:
- You accept a connection request from a member or company.
- Another member or company accepts a connection request you send to them.
- You follow a member or company (or they follow you), and you (or they) reciprocate – this then becomes a connection.
Connection credits are NOT used when:
- You are linked to another member or company through a project you both share.
To benefit from unlimited connections, upgrade for just £19.99 per year.

The People and Company pages are made up of popular projects, and projects that are favourited by our Marketing Team.

What is Madeit?
At Creativepool we believe in collaboration. We know that there are many people that go into creating a successul ad, shooting a great documentary, pulling off a ground-breaking campaign, and taking a new product to market. That's why we believe that everyone should be given the credit for the work they carried out.
When you spot a project that you were involved in, simply click Madeit and state how you were involved. The details will be sent to the person or company that uploaded the project, where they will validate your role in the project.
Be sure to follow your colleagues and companies you've worked with so taht you can click Madeit on all projects you were involved in.
Manage Madeit Requests
If you upload a project and another member has collaborated on it with you, they may send you a Madeit notification. You will need to validate the request for the project to appear on their profile. To manage your Madeit reguests visit Madeit in your Pools.
Why must I verify a Madeit request?
Verifying your a Madeit request will post the project onto your profile on Creativepool. This will also link back to your friends profile and anyone else involved. Cool huh!
To reduce the number of Madeit requests you receive, you should tag all of the collaborators involved when you upload a project. To do this you can search for people and companies that are members of Creativepool, or add their email address to send a request.
