WeTransfer

WeTransfer is a file transfer service first and foremost. It was built to get files from A to B with no hassle, no stress and no charge. But it is much more than that. At its heart is a global exhibition of creative talent. In curating the wallpapers and experience you see on WeTransfer today we have built an amazing network of artists, illustrators, entrepreneurs, photographers, shops and artisans. It has allowed us to provide a free tool for our users, but also support the creativity of some incredible businesses and people around the world. And for us, that's a really, really big deal.
