Game of Thrones' Arya Stark and Highsnobiety cover star Maisie Williams is launching a new mobile app dubbed Daisie, reports The Verge. Daisie is designed to connect creatives, providing a place to network, share, and collaborate, as well as obtain guidance on given careers.

“I couldn’t be happier about the change we are currently seeing in creative industries and the movement towards women becoming truly valued,” Williams noted in a statement regarding the app’s development. “I want Daisie to give other creatives the opportunities that I was lucky enough to receive at the beginning of my career. Daisie will break down the archaic gap between youth and creative jobs; offering new opportunities for individuals to collaborate, learn and create – establishing a new way for talented individuals to be discovered and employed."

Co-founded by movie producer Dom Santry, the app hopes to become a new place for discovery and collaboration, as an alternative to the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

“Social media can be a very lonely place, and somewhere that doesn’t necessarily inspire collaboration or foster meaningful connections,” Santry added. “It’s very easy for creative voices to get lost in platforms riddled with ads and unimportant content; we’re hoping to eradicate these, providing a focused, industry specific platform.”

For now, Daisie is still in the developmental stages, with hopes of launching in August of this year.
