Platforms for the technologically creative
WorkingNotWorking and Creatively are both geared toward artists and designers. However, the positions these sites advertise are increasingly digital. So if you’re a designer of beautiful websites or a user-experience expert, who can make websites and apps both intuitive and attractive, these are great places to post a portfolio and look for work. Neither site takes a commission from creatives who find work here. You can find our review of WorkingNotWorking here.
