Applying

Veteran creator or total newbie - If you’ve got the talent we’ve got the time. Anyone can apply to Easle, at which point your portfolio goes to the discipline ambassadors. They then hand select talent to feature on the site - looking for skill but also a diverse range of styles. You’re welcome to apply for more than one discipline, but you’ll only be able to tag and receive work for disciplines you’re approved for.

Getting work

Once approved, you’ll need to build a profile and set your availability. Our advanced search then displays your profile looking for people like you. The Easle Jobs board also lets you apply to jobs, although we encourage clients to come to you. Rate payments and fixed fee payments are both supported.

3

Project Management

Everything is done through the platform so you can easily keep track. We even write you a To Do list.

4

Paperwork

Contracts are done by us, you just need to click accept when you get them. Invoices are also generated by us - and there’s a system to fill out time sheets too.

5

Payments

Being a single creator up against a big company can be tough. We want to make that better, so we have 14-30 day payment terms - never longer. Once clients have paid, the money should be with you in 2-3 days. We also send automated payment reminders to our clients, and if they’re late they’re fined. These fines are then shared with you to say sorry.
