I don’t mind either and both have different benefits. Shorter contracts give you the flexibility to have more variety in your work, pick up new clients and take a bit more time out for the family without compromising a clients project deadlines. Whilst long term can invariably mean long hours and sometimes a more pressured environment, being part of a team, building relationships and being involved in a long term project can be pretty rewarding and result in some very nice work.
The average project length for Studio freelancers in. 2019 was around three weeks (14 working days), one of the shortest averages across the disciplines. This indicates that the projects worked on by freelancers were more focused in nature and required immediate impact.
