The Freelance Life: Find Out How Creatives Live Day To Day

Over 2000+ people were asked about about their daily creative habits—how do yours match up?


“How do today’s creative professionals live?”

This is the question that we recently posed to over 2000 of the photographers, illustrators, designers and visual artists that make up our Format community. Partnering with illustrator Sam Island, the results were compiled into a visual breakdown of a typical day for a creative professional—and includes details about everything from the time they wake up to their most used emoji.

You can view the quirky step by step daily guide here. Does your day match up? Let us know on Twitter!
