Can I choose a creative professional from a particular country?
Do I need to have fixed working hours?
Most of the time, you don’t. However, it depends on the project and the agreement with your client.

I created an album, but it’s not visible to the public.
Every album is reviewed by our team to make sure it represents your work the best way possible. If your album is not visible, it could still be under review. Also, make sure there is no explicit content.
How certain can I be that I will get paid?
100%. We handle the business side and make sure that you always get paid for the work you complete.
How often will I get paid?
Payments are processed on a weekly basis. The first payment is usually delayed, depending on the chosen payment method.
I am having problems with the client. What should I do?
Inform your account manager as soon as possible and explain exactly what the problem is. We’ll take it from there.
I am not seeing some albums on my feed that were there yesterday.
As new projects from new users are uploaded, your feed shows different albums.
Why do I need to fill out a timesheet?
For any active job, a timesheet is created and has to be populated each week in order to get paid. Payment is initiated only when a timesheet is submitted by the talent and approved by the client, so this is a really important step to remember.
Do I have to use the Motiff messaging system when writing to the client?
You don’t have to, but it makes life easier. Should you ever encounter a problem with the client, we can review the communication within the chat and help come up with a solution.
How do I apply to jobs?
Once you have a complete portfolio, applying to jobs is really easy. You simply find the job post that interests you and click “apply”. The client is notified of your application and your profile serves as your resume or CV.
How do I post a job?
Click on “post a job” from the “jobs” tab. You may either simply paste a link to your job post (if there is one on your website or third party site) or create a post from scratch.
What are shouts?
Shouts are a way for designers to share snippets of projects they are working on and check-in to see what others are up to. It’s an additional marketing tool for designers and a way to stay visible to potential clients. From the client’s perspective, it’s a way to see who is active and working on new things.
What is the creative feed?
The creative feed is a collection of albums. For designers, it is where you can find inspiration before starting your day. For clients, it is a way to glance through various albums and see whose work really catches your eye.
