What began as a prevalent trend has become more popular than ever. In 2013, we have seen record breaking amounts of freelancers working with us for our clients. In a nutshell, Freelancing in the creative industry is a win-win situation for both the client and the freelancer. Companies may not always have a full time position open, but from time to time need the creative support of a Designer, Artworker or Copywriter to meet their project deadlines. Add a Savvy Freelancer to the equation, and we have a solution. The company is able to service their client’s urgent needs effectively and the Freelancer gains exposure to new working environments, new clients & exclusive projects…all with the flexibility of being self-employed!
