What is it like to work for an agency?

The Agency as Employer

One of the key benefits of working with a graphic design agency is having a "real" employer who can take care of things like health insurance and training opportunities. Some even file tax documents for you and offer paid holidays.

Each agency has different requirements for a freelancer to be added to its benefits list. Check these out carefully and be sure you qualify.

Be wary of an agency or freelance directory that charges designers a fee to be connected with jobs. A legitimate design agency makes its money only from the corporate clients who hire its freelancers.
