There a new online design portal for the nightclub promotions industry, called FlyerStarter (www.flyerstarter.com). The site bills itself as "a central hub for promoters, club owners and music agencies to quickly find a fresh design to purchase, in lieu of hiring a graphic designer to make one from scratch." Users can buy and sell graphics, photos and fonts as well as complete flyer designs. "The overall global recession has hit the nightclub industry hard, with many owners downsizing in all areas, even including activities for the essential task of getting customers into their establishments," according to FlyerStarter. "Traditional independent contractor advertising channels are disappearing, as more and more owners frustrate graphic designers and ad agencies with dwindling promotions budgets." Unlike the major online stock photo agencies, which offer "material suitable for a higher bracket of the advertising industry, FlyerStarter offers only material visually and thematically specific to the nightclub promotions industry, at prices that club owners can afford."
