How is your directory organised?

People begin their search for creative people at AbleStable by first selecting a 'Creative Area'. A Creative Area is a broad category of creative activity (for example 'Design'). Within each Creative Area there are many 'Disciplines' (for example 'Web Design'). A Discipline at AbleStable is defined as a specialism within a particular creative field. A certain Discipline may require many 'Skills'. Skills are particular abilities and expertise a person has within a given Discipline (for example being a proficient user of a particular make of web design software).

In summary, the path to finding a creative person at AbleStable is to filter choices by:
Creative Area/s > Discipline/s > Skill/s.

Does your directory act as agents for creative professionals?

AbleStable does not act as an agency. We do not receive commission on any work generated as a result of our directory, and we do not represent Client's interests to creative professionals with the exception of posting projects. Our directory model ensures Clients and Members enjoy the benefits of an introductory service without being tied into an agency levy.

Do you recommend creative professionals?

No. Recommendations tend to drive traffic towards a particular group of creative professionals that share certain qualities which may not benefit your requirements. These creative professionals are more likely to be established, non-independant, high status, and more expensive. We have adopted a model that puts Clients in charge of making appropriate comparisons for their needs, and ensures creative professionals are presented on an even playing field.
