Bigstock just announced a new partnership with the Freelancers Union to support the growing independent workforce of designers, creatives and photographers. This partnership between Bigstock and the Freelancers Union will increase access to Bigstock’s inventory for independent workers who are part of the union and create opportunities for more submissions of creative content for the Bigstock image and design library.
Independent workers are a growing market within the US and support from large corporations is a win-win situation for both parties. The industry boasts an economy of over $250 billion generated through freelancer work and purchases that support this industry. The support from Bigstock reflects a trend in the marketplace that will only grow as more workers become independent.
