Collaboration for the Creative
Zig is designed to help creative professionals deliver exceptional experiences.
Collaboration for Modern Projects
Zig is a collaboration platform that works the way you work. It allows you to manage talent pools, create on-demand teams, and collaborate with clients, partners, and subcontractors in one space. Kind of like how you do things in real life.
Built different, because it is different.
Zig is a complete tool for project collaboration, offering everything from task scheduling, states and approvals, to rich group chat and channels.
Zig allows teams to be assembled from anyone who’s signed up, so you can augment your team easily, and still see everything in a single view.
Everything you see is directly related to you. That makes Zig easier to use, and it allows you to mix teams without worry that people will see things they shouldn’t.
Creative people tackle more than one job at a time. Several projects at different stages, and maybe some side gigs.
Sometimes creative work requires adding people to your team, or collaborating with other companies at different stages.
Private and Streamlined
Complex teams can mean complex management and privacy issues. Creative teams need simplicity and data security.
Creative teams are often remote teams, creating communication challenges and the need for realtime updates.

Your Schedule In Context
Zig’s scheduling and task management tools make it beautifully simple to plan and track several projects at once. You can layout roadmaps, assign tasks, and set dependencies. Task information automatically aggregates up to let everyone know how things are going without having to dig down to specific tasks.
Scheduling and Task Management Features
- drag and drop scheduling
- dependencies and parenting
- task states (assigned, started, finished, approved)
- task priority warnings
- automatic priority sorting
Build a Working Network
Work with different disciplines to deliver exceptional projects. Invite collaborators to Zig, from coworkers to freelancers to clients. Zig’s unique architecture lets you ditch spreadsheets and contact lists, giving you a focused network of the people you rely on to help you get things done. Invite any connection to a project, and they only see what they need to see.
Learn About the Directory
The Directory is a unique feature in Zig. It connects you to every other person that’s signed up.
You can create working teams by connecting to people on the Directory and adding them to projects. Creative work is often demanding, with unique challenges, and we designed Zig to allow you to assemble teams that can meet those challenges. Connect to the people you work with regularly, and grow your network so you’re prepared for any production challenge.
Check in with team members in realtime, share files, ideas, and notes.
Work with people outside your walls like they’re in the room.
Don't lose track of what's important. Do lose track of what's unimportant.
Zig connects everyone to the information they need, and hides the stuff they don’t. Everything is aggregated into one view, so you can see the status of all of your projects and tasks at a glance.
Our Filtering Theory
Projects are complicated. There are lots of things to do, and those things often depend on other things. You can’t edit until you get footage. You can’t animate until you get a rig.
Users don’t take to a lot of task management because it’s hard to parse all the information. So we decided to trim it down and make sure everything is relevant. So when someone looks at a roadmap, they see their tasks and the tasks that are directly connected to them. That relevance makes everything easier to understand and manage.
Zig only shows you projects, people and tasks that you’re directly connected to, and important info like tasks you need.
See everything using simple views, paired down and priority sorted. No clutter, just relevance.
Channels are created between tasks, people, and groups. That context keeps everyone productive and focused. People can share notes and ideas in real time, provide feedback, or help with problems.

We’re sticklers for security. Firtsly, Zig’s a project tool built on a social network, not an advertising company built on a social network, so we don’t need to know what you’re up to.
To that end all messages are encrypted end to end using TLS and AE256 encryption. Our network partners are HIPAA Compliant, SOC 2 Type II Compliant, Privacy Shield certified, and GDPR compliant
Lots of potential for flexible teams and contractors. It allows you to leverage your network in production in a useful way.Renee M
