If you’re a talented creative pro, you’ve probably test-driven the freelance lifestyle at some point. We’re guessing you absolutely loved the freedom. Bet you also really enjoyed the opportunity to be your own boss, to make your own schedule, to accept only those projects that seemed they’d be fun and interesting to work on. We understand.

But there’s the dark side of the gig economy – the wobbly communication from clients, the uncertainty, the endless wait for a payment that was promised last month. Sure, yeah, the check’s in the mail. We understand that too.

More of the good parts. Less of the bad.

The Roster exists because we were certain there had to be a better way. After years of working within every facet of the creative industry, we’ve experienced all the best that freelancing has to offer. We’ve also endured our fair share of the nightmare stuff.
