The Bar for Membership is High.
Like, Snoop Dogg High.

Becoming a Working Not Working member is not easy. Only 10% of submitted portfolios are approved by the Membership Board. It’s the reason our community is trusted by thousands of companies like Apple, Google, Airbnb, Facebook, Droga5, Wieden+Kennedy, R/GA, Psyop, VICE and The New York Times.

Community Not Commissions

In 2012, two creatives launched Working Not Working to introduce transparency to a world of secret rolodexes and high commissions. Both of which inherently impede collaboration. That’s why Working Not Working membership is a flat subscription for companies and always free for creatives.
