Corvid Companion

On-demand, head-to-toe production services for freelance artists. We sweat the details — you focus on the artwork.

Look good. Focus on work. Get paid.

You know how to create top-notch artwork, but do you know how to quote? How to keep revisions under control? When to engage third party suppliers? Our producers have negotiated thousands of contracts, navigated the most ambitious briefs and handled endless kinds of clients. Working with us means we take on all client communication and negotiation for you — from beginning to end. We mitigate the risks artists face and lay the foundations to get a commercial project off the ground and successfully over the finish line. We’re here to protect all fronts — artists, creative visions and project goals.

Hereʼs how it works.

1 Tell us about the project

Once you’ve filled out our form, we’ll review the details to make sure it’s something we can help with. If it’s good to go, we’ll assign you a producer and ask for an initial fee of $99AUD* to get things moving.

2 Brief your producer

Every artist and project is different, so we kick things off with a call to learn about you and your work. We’ll chat about the best way to approach the job together and answer any questions you may have.

3 Let us take care of it

Rare is the client with all the info you need to prepare an accurate quote. We’ll work with them on scope, specs, timelines and all the elements that may not have been considered (even the weird stuff). We’ve quoted on (and won) thousands of jobs, handling all of the sticky stuff, like licensing. We can even work with our legal team* to make sure your contract is ironclad. It’s about laying strong foundations to create your best work, with terms in plain English—all the protection, none of the jargon.

4 Breeze it to the finish line

Once the job’s signed off, we’ll use our suite of project management tools to set it up, with everything you and the client need within easy reach. You’ll collaborate closely with them on creative and we’ll be beside you to stay on top of timings, manage revisions, rebriefs, logistics, conflict mediation and anything else that pops up.

5 Get paid

You’ve sent final files to the client and we’ve sent the invoice with a nifty licence document, so they know exactly how they can and can’t use your work. We’ll chase and collect payment, transferring your fees* straight to you. We’ll even hunt down samples from the client and permission to show the work in your folio. Sorted!
