Proud yet tiny ad network for creators

Clay consists of Design Feast and its blog Design Feaster. Your ad displays, on and beyond the homepage, at both of these Websites.

What’s with the name?

Clay is material, one of the oldest, to build an idea. It also rhymes with play, which, as Poet Clarissa Pinkola Estés says, “is the central artery, the core, the brain stem of creative life.”

How do I get my creation (see examples at right) advertised?

Contact Nate Burgos, who runs Design Feast and its affiliated Web-based efforts, and let’s chat.

What will my ad look like?

You can see the presentation below in this site’s footer: a concise header coupled with a good-sized image.

What’s the “revenue model” for Clay?

There are great creative ad networks, like The Deck, InfluAds, Fusion Ads, Yoggrt, Vantageous, and more. Clay’s approach is different, which is why “revenue model” is in quotes because I just don’t mean money. Revenue can also mean reciprocation.

With Clay, if you want to pay with money, set your price and let’s talk terms. If you would rather barter, what can you offer? Perhaps this is a temporary link on your site, a periodic tweet, free trial of your product, or another way that’s mutually beneficial. Let’s connect and get creative about ways to reciprocate.

Why should I advertise via Clay?

Because Design Feast—through its persistent discovery of creative voices and projects, writings, and range of Series—is passionately dedicated to serving creative culture: people who love to make things, as showcased in Design Feast’s Interviews. If you made something that you feel is aligned with Design Feast’s purpose, consider Clay as a tool to help you reach like-minded-and-hearted people.
