"to create a work of art is to create the world."

Our Story

UnVale was formed in 2021 when a group of folks came together after sensing the collective frustrations of artists. Creators were fed up with exploitive fees, NFTs, AI art, and existing platforms that didn't match their values. We set out to build a fair, easy-to-use commission platform, and our team started to grow.

During 2022, we connected with more and more artists, creators, writers, and worldbuilders. We found that, at the heart of all these individuals was one thing: a love for character creation and imagination. Characters enable us to connect with others, explore new worlds, and express our most authentic selves. So, with this newfound enthusiasm, we decided to narrow the focus of the UnVale platform to original characters, improving upon the creation and collection aspects of character management first.

By the start of 2023, we had grown a community of over a thousand creators, all of whom were excitedly awaiting the launch of our new character-focused platform. Right now, we're opening UnVale up to the world and want to welcome you to our community. Together, we can build something new.

Our Culture

UnVale is far from your average workplace, and that's intentional. We are introvert-first, meaning you don't have to be the loudest in the room to have your ideas heard. We prioritize diversity within our team, so we walk the walk with our recruiting and hiring practices. We work as asynchronously as possible, so you won't find yourself stuck in meetings all day. It's a one-of-a-kind place to work, and we're extremely proud of our team. Our goal is to push the boundaries of what a great workplace looks like and inspire others to do the same.

And the numbers don't lie. In a survey from December of 2022, 100% of our team was proud to work for UnVale. Here are just a few things we do internally that really makes us stand out:

  • Creativity-focused team benefits - UnVale will help you purchase the drawing tablet you've had your eye on, finally sign-up for that pottery class, or buy a new book that will inspire you.
  • No-questions-asked mental health days - We get it. These days are here for when you need some extra recharge time.
  • 3 weeks minimum time-off - Work-life balance is paramount, and we want everyone on our team to work sustainably and have a fulfilling life outside of work.
  • Flexible working hours - Are you a night owl that prefers to work at 2am? Go for it. Make appointments, leave your desk to take a walk or do chores, and pick up your kid from school.
  • Team activities - From roundtables where we share stories that shaped us into the humans we are today to gaming sessions where we build Minecraft houses, we make time for fun and connection.
