Academy presented me with great opportunities that I would not have found otherwise, with a clientele ranging from specialized design boutiques to Big Tech, and with the flexibility of working with different types of engagements for both short and long-term assignments. I cannot recommend it enough to other creatives looking to make their next big career move.
Academy offers a rare blend of professional growth opportunities alongside mentorship and personalized career support. The team is incredibly knowledgeable and also takes interest in the personal and professional growth of the freelancers that they work with. In a moment of transition in my career from Innovation Strategy to UX Research, Academy helped me articulate my goals and provided me with the opportunities to see them through while working with incredible clients and designers. I would highly recommend Academy to any freelance or full-timers looking to expand their portfolio of work.
With Academy, I’ve experienced a proactive, transparent, and supportive agency that provides top-tier opportunities. As a freelancer, Academy played a huge role in not only providing opportunities that are rewarding and satisfying but also supporting me outside of the office. My relationship with Academy has been great, they’re a perfect agency to grow as a freelance designer. I’m looking forward to more opportunities with them and would recommend them to any designer without reservation.
When I teamed up with Academy, I just started freelancing after burning out from my job. Two years later, I’m now working with the C suite of some of the most influential companies in the world. Academy stuck with me through the highs and the lows along my journey and provided me with opportunities that are second to none.
I have been fortunate enough to work with Academy for over 4 years, and through them have worked with some of the best agencies and clients in my career. Academy is able to maintain a high standard for both talent and clients and is a strong advocate for forward-thinking design and processes. As a freelancer, navigating career progression and client relationships is exceptionally difficult but Academy has always advocated for me as a designer and always puts the talent first. They also go above and beyond by providing mentorship and advice that has propelled my career forward. It is a privilege to work with Academy and look forward to continuing our relationship.
The team at Academy paired me with a dream project - a project I probably would never have been matched with otherwise. Academy's infrastructure is as streamlined as a big company but as intimate as a startup. It's really nice to know that there's a team out there really putting in the work to find a great fit both for the freelance side and the client-side.
Working with Academy has been a phenomenal experience. I was able to grow a lot as a designer working on cool future-facing projects along with an exciting client. I would definitely recommend Academy to other designers looking to hone in on their craft.
