Future of Freelancing

AIGA Chicago and Artisan present

The Future of Freelancing

What does the future of freelance look like? Successful freelancers are more than creatives—they’re small businesses with big responsibilities. Between promoting their projects, growing client relationships, delivering on deadlines, and doing the books, freelancers have to put in a great deal of work to make their business work. So, how do they manage it all?

AIGA Chicago and Artisan invite you to join a panel of experts that will address the challenges and demands freelancers tackle today, and discuss the difficulties they may face in the future.

Don’t forget to bring a business card to drop in the fishbowl. You could win a free day of co-working space at the Grind.
