Yes, your art director would give you a deadline to submit your files. Usually our exclusive designers have weekly tasks to achieve.
10) Can I upload my illustrations directly to Freepik or does it have to be through my coordinator ?
Once you become an exclusive designer at Freepik you will have access to our internal system where you can upload your images easier and faster. Please keep in mind that your files must be reviewed and validated by your assigned art director before its upload. The the same system you can keep in touch with your art director and ask her any questions you may have.
11) Which kind of files am I allowed to upload at Freepik?
Currently we only offer to design exclusively for vector illustrations (EPS).
12) How much time should I wait until my illustrations are uploaded/validated?
Whether you upload through the system or send your files to your coordinator/person of contact, please keep in mind that validation and uploading can take around 1-15 working days. However it can take longer depending on the files received by our designing team.
13) What type of styles tend to work at Freepik?
Once you have joined our Team your assigned Art Director will be the responsible of sending you the task styles you must complete.
14) Can I send content based on festivities such as Christmas, valentines day, fathers day?
Yes, it is actually a good thing to do. Having festivities images on your portfolio will increase your downloads. However please send and/or upload festivity content only when the date is approaching, preferably a month before and avoid uploading a few days close to the date as this assures more downloads and consequently more earnings. For example: If we are in the month of January, it doesn't make sense to upload Christmas content as the date just passed and you will not get as many downloads as if you would have uploaded it in November. But in January it would be useful to upload Valentines designs as the number of downloads will keep on increasing as we get closer to the date.
