From a global pandemic to climate instability and political uncertainty—we’ve seen it all during this crazy year. Yet as everyone prepared to stay (and work!) from home, freelancers already had the upper hand. After all, they’ve been doing this for years.

For the second year in a row, we asked the global freelance design community to open up about their 2020 experiences in our annual survey. From Sydney to Salzburg, 11,362 freelance creators across 147 countries shared their insights and stories in the most wide-reaching survey of the sector to date.

We were blown away.

Despite facing an unprecedented moment in history, freelance creatives are demonstrating a remarkable ability to adapt… and thrive.
