What kinds of projects do you work with freelancers for?
We work with freelancers constantly – writers, photographers, illustrators and artists are integral to the stories we publish. Beyond features, we tend to work with freelancers on specific projects and big commissions. This can include freelance help, from production to event coordination.
When the team is in need of a bit of fun or inspiration, what do you do?
It has obviously been harder during the pandemic, but whenever possible we get together as a team to celebrate successful project launches. That can involve going to exhibitions, screenings or talks, and always dinner and a few drinks afterwards.
Our head of music, Tiff Yu, is based in Los Angeles, so we also try to do one team trip a year, where Tiff comes to Europe or the rest of the team heads Stateside.
When you think about WePresent in 10 years’ time, what comes to mind?
In 10 years’ time we will have featured artists from every single country in the world and will still be pushing the boundaries of creative storytelling. We see endless possibilities – creative conferences, exhibitions, books, a global network. We’ve got big plans, watch this space.
