WHO CREATED THIS APP
The FIND. app was created by Shaun Ervine and Michelle Matthews. Michelle is the creator of the Deck of Secrets guide series. Culture Secrets Melbourne was first released in 2006 featuring 52 of the most diverse cultural offerings. It is currently into its second edition. The company produces over 20 guides in their distinctive deck of cards format and cover many other cities and themes. Visit www.deckofsecrets.com to download a copy of the catalogue or buy the guides online.
And remember: Deck of Secrets is 100% independent. All venues are selected purely on their merits. No venues featured pay to appear in the guides. At all. Ever.
FIND. has a trusted, well-established offline pedigree. Our mission is to share the knowledge that arms a first time visitor with the confidence to explore the city. Our guides are never comprehensive; why would we waste your precious leisure time on ho hum, nothing to write home about places? We’ve won some awards, developed a loyal following and been written up in some of the worlds leading magazines and newspapers.
“Everyone is talking about: Bar Secrets. Deck of Secrets is an Australian concept that is reinventing the idea of the guide book” Scanorama, Scandinavian Airlines in-flight magazine NOV 2008.
