The Remote Working Revolution In The Creative Industry

Debates around remote working have been rumbling on for years now, but the Covid-19 pandemic left creatives, agencies and studios with little choice but to embrace it. While WFH is manageable for creatives that work alone and have single focused tasks, It’s tougher for the ones that work in highly collaborative projects having to face many hours Zooming each other to piece the project together. The pandemic showed us a better way to make the processes of working more efficient. It also allows us to identify and create new streams of revenue.

Here are some resources to help you with remote creativity👇
