Collaboration can feed creativity, turning a vague idea into a powerful reality.

But what happens when all of the collaborators are at a distance? Or work from home? Is it possible to have a creative studio that puts out meaningful ideas remotely? You might be surprised at the answer.


Not only is remote work gaining traction (In 2016, 43 percentof Americans worked remotely at least part of the time) but the concept actually has big benefits for employers and employees alike. These benefits mean that a remote creative studio might actually be the best way to get work done.

A remote creative studio will save you money.

Imagine cutting your annual costs by an average of $11,000 a year, without compromising on employees or the work you get done. Global Workplace Analytics says these savings are possible for small businesses, just by hiring remote vendors. Big businesses have even larger savings, with companies like Aetna and American Express saving tens of millions of dollars a year and Cisco saving hundreds of millions of dollars a year, just by hiring vendors and allowing some of their employees to work from home.

These cost savings are driven by the fact that remote employees mean less office space, supplies, utilities, janitors, and other overhead costs associated with owning (or renting) and maintaining a place for employees to work. Not needing to buy all those paper clips and office furniture can really add up for businesses.


A remote creative studio increases productivity.

Remote work has suffered from stereotypes before: Pajama-clad employees rolling into work late and leaving early because no one is there to make sure they punch a time clock. But what studies have shown is just the opposite: Employees are actually more productive, to the tune of an extra workday a week for one business that allowed its employees to work from home. With the right team that is built, increased productivity is the outcome. Shameless, plug 😉



And improved productivity is not limited to just a few employees. Virtually all workers surveyed report an increase in the amount of work they can get done, and two-thirds of managers concur. Often, this improved productivity is due to the fact that there are fewer distractions (such as chatty coworkers and ringing phones) to contend with. With more productivity at a lower cost, remote work can be good for a company’s bottom line.


A remote creative studio improve employees’ experience and is the most powerful partner in content creation.

But remote work isn’t just good for employers. It also has strong benefits for employees, who prefer working from home for a number of reasons. Flexible schedules, for example, lead to a better work/life balance, and make it more appealing for older employees to stay on at the company. Fewer distractions and no commute mean more focused work time(imagine what that could do for an artist’s creativity). And happier employees mean lower attrition rates and less turnover.


All of these benefits mean that a remote creative studio might actually be the best solution for meaningful collaboration on your projects. Today’s (often free) technology, like Slack and Skype and Google Hangouts, allow you to connect effectively while you collaborate, even from a distance. And that means that a remote creative studio can deliver a strong project for less money and more satisfied employees.
