Already having formed many of our notions on the rising role of freelancing in the creative industry by 2012, we formed the international digital art firm Gunship Revolution as an alternative to the conventional studio setup. GR was built around a coordinated network of online workspaces and marketplaces, designed to be lean and adaptable while contending for the reputation of being one of Southeast Asia's most trusted digital art providers.
