Collaboration for the Creative
Zig is designed to help creative professionals deliver exceptional experiences.
Zig Helps Creative Teams Deliver
Creative projects can have crews that include coworkers, external partners, subcontractors and clients. Zig gets everyone on the same page and focused on the same goal.
If you produce events, campaigns, animation or interactive experiences Zig can save you headaches, hassles, and potentially thousands each year. Whether you’re a solo operation or a team of two hundred, we want to be the left brain so you can be all right.
Zig is designed to help creative professionals deliver by getting your team, your freelancers, and your partners focused on the project at hand.
Flexible Teams Deliver Great Experiences
Creative projects are delivered by networks of talented people. Zig allows you to bring everyone together in one space.
Get your team together
Zig lets you build a personalized roster of talent that includes coworkers, partners, and contractors. Invite the people you work with and see their availability, bring them on projects as-needed, and stay in touch in between.
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.
Start a project and make a plan
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
Track progress and keep things moving
Zig lets you stay in touch with realtime chat channels in tasks, projects, and between people. Everyone who has access to a task or project can send a message using the channel, and everyone else who has access will see it. It’s simple, relevant, and instant.
- rich media embedding
- embedded task lists
- markdown formatting
- drag and drop file sharing
- group and direct messaging
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
Stay on top of your to-do list
Zig is designed to make sure you stay on top of what matters. Everything is aggregated into one view, so you can see the status of all of your projects and tasks at a glance. Tasks are filtered for relevance, and sorted by priority.
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.
