Das Auge - The creative network

 is the UK sibling of acclaimed design directory dasauge, one of the most popular design portals on the net.

dasauge has been around since 1997 and over the years has brought together an unparalleled network of creative people – in terms of sheer number and quality of contacts alike. So if you rely on good and sustainable contacts in the creative industry, you’ve come to the right place – because dasauge is where creative heads meet.

For the non German speakers among you, “das Auge” (pronounced something along the lines of “dus owgger”) literally means “the eye”, suggesting both the visual and design emphasis of the site and conceivably the skill of keeping an eye on the latest developments in the creative world.
What is offered


Creating a profile on dasauge is a way for you to introduce yourself to colleagues, clients, employers, employees or potential job applicants, and forms the basis for establishing a presence on dasauge. Under your permanent, personal profile address, people can access your contact details and logo, as well as your entries and your network of contacts. And like all the functions on dasauge – creating a profile is entirely free of charge.


Showcase your references – whether photographic work, illustrations, logos, layouts, films or sounds – for free on dasauge. You can upload and present your work in as many portfolios as you wish, and devise your own copy and titles. This means interested parties can not only read about what you do, but also put themselves directly in the picture. You can integrate your portfolios into your website or blog easily using the code provided. Your portfolio will appear on your website at a click of a button.
