A straightforward, always-free tool to instantly create simple and beautiful Craigslist ads.

This is the final push!

Help us reach that final leg of funding so that we can create better, more beautiful Craigslist ads for you! We can't do it without your help!

How you can help:

  • Increase your pledge! Every bit counts!
  • Tell a friend! Hop on Facebook/Twitter/Blog and post about our Kickstarter!

If you backed us prior in any amount, you're already automatically invited to the beta and we'll email you instructions! For everyone else, there will be a sign up to be notified when the tool finishes the beta stage and is available for public use. Thanks everyone for your support! We're so close!

For those asking how the process works, we've created a graphic that shows how easy it is to post a rental listing.

Mashable covers The Beautiful Craigslist Ads Project

We're here to take the guesswork out of Craigslist. Help us be free and ad-free.

We love Craigslist. But If you've ever tried to look for an apartment on Craigslist, you know how frustrating it can be. Some apartment listings tell you critical information, and some don't. Some look ok, but most don't.

You're supposed to make one of the most important decisions of your life - where to live - based on that. 

Currently: On Craigslist, posters start with a blank slate and have to remember what information is key and then work hard to get it displayed right every time. 

Now imagine this: Anyone creating an apartment listing can use our free, online wizard, answering questions that we've highlighted as really important to you. We then produce a listing that can be used on Craigslist (or anywhere else!). 

Creating a listing is totally free, no sign-up required, and no advertisements ruining the experience.

We want to make it free and easy to make every Craigslist post well thought-out and useful:

Who We Are:

We are a band of 3: Bin and Helen are our designers. Bin is an art director at Timbuk2 who also runs the blog You Might Find Yourself, and Helen has designed for numerous firms and has a rock-star portfolio at helentseng.com. Ajay, our developer, has rented out apartments on Craigslist, and is a Googler with a passion for making the world a better place.

Oh, and we like to have a little fun. Here's us with some outtakes from the kickstarter shoot:

Your contributions will make this a free tool.

We've already worked through hundreds of mock-ups, reviewed thousands of apartment listings, and done most of the coding research. That part's done. With your help, we'll be able to launch the tool and start making Craigslist a little more beautiful.

We made some stickers to give away as a reward for anyone contributing $10 or more, while supplies last!
