This is Zig. Collaboration for the creative.

My favourite part about Zig is the community or expanded network aspect to it. I can reach out in real time to freelancers I need on a project- it's like having LinkedIn or Behance tapped directly into my project.

What’s a Zig?
Production tools for the creative process.

Zig is collaboration software that’s designed to fit the workflow of the modern creative shop. It allows you to assemble teams from anyone on the network, plan roadmaps, stay in touch with everyone, and keep things on track.

Scheduling
Plan project roadmaps with dependencies and task hierarchies.
Messaging
Message with people, groups. Tasks and projects have messaging channels.

Directory

Go outside the walls of your company and invite anyone on Zig to join your project.
Tracking
Add budgets and due dates and Zig will help you keep your priorities in check.
Zig is not enterprise software.
Built for the creative community.
Creative work is different. It’s often collaborative across companies, not just within them. Freelancers and contractors work with mixed teams across multiple projects. That’s why we made Zig a community, not an enterprise app. Using Zig you can work seamlessly with other teams, freelancers, and clients.
Collections
Explore the world through collections of beautiful stock photos.
