We're you – graphic designers, artists, writers – and we walk the freelance tightrope every day.

All too often, the issue of client nonpayment goes unspoken. Many of us fear that in speaking out against bad business practices, we’ll be penalized and lose potential clients.

This culture of silence has to end: The services we provide are valuable and we deserve to be paid for them on-time and in-full.

That’s why we support the #FreelanceIsntFree Campaign and agreed to speak out against client nonpayment in a new campaign video created by Freelancers Union.

Take a look – then join the campaign and make YOUR voice heard:
