Working Not Working
In 2011, my buddy, Adam Tompkins, and I decided to do something about the lack of structure and support for freelance creatives. Not just creatives that were between jobs, but the really good ones that wanted to stay independent so that they could have creative lives beyond how they earned a paycheck. Some of the best talent in the business fits into this category. So we conceived Working Not Working, the first real-time network that broadcasts the availability of the best freelance creatives to companies looking to hire them. Launched in January 2012, the community has grown to over 50,000 creatives and more than 2,000 of the best creative companies in the world using Working Not Working to manage their freelance and full-time talent – including Apple, Google, Droga5, Wieden+Kennedy, Airbnb, Kickstarter, IDEO and The New York Times.
I'd spend time putting a bunch of screenshots of Working Not Working pages nicely comped onto images of laptops and phones but that would be a waste of both of our time.
