    Location isn’t important. Time is what matters Imagine if remote workers and freelancers operated in a way that was smart, collaborative, and rewarding for both businesses and creatives… That was my thinking after years in the creative sector back in London. I knew that the traditional agency model needed an alternative. High overheads and a limited pool of talent were creating problems. Sometimes things were challenging, inefficient, and expensive – impacting both client-side marketers and agency creatives. But it didn’t have to be this way… I started working as a freelancer shortly after moving to Medellin, Colombia, finding that there was so much more flexibility in working remotely. This proved to be a definite advantage to both myself and my clients – predominantly startup businesses with quite specific marketing needs. As tech continued to make collaboration so much easier, and given the ongoing rise of the freelance economy, I felt it was time to offer clients something different: an agile agency able to meet the needs of innovative startups right across the World. And Clockwork was born.
