In a world where technology has allowed us to work anywhere, why wouldn’t you want to go freelance? No boss breathing down your neck. Flexible working hours. Complete control over your rates. It’s not surprising that so many people are choosing freelancing as a career and lifestyle choice.

Nevertheless, going freelance is still a relatively risky business, particularly during the aftermath of arguably the most devastating recession of the last 75 years. Although it might be great to have no boss, ultimately you are responsible for your own success. It is down to you to meet tight targets and deadlines; making the most of your time.

Solo: a new project management tool from startup company Thrive. But what’s all the fuss about?


Enter Solo: an all-in-one project management tool for the modern freelancer, the first project from start-up company Thrive.

Whereas a lot of online tools lack style and individuality, Solo aims to stand out from the crowd with a vision of creating beautiful and user-friendly web and mobile applications. With its intuitive user interface, Solo makes managing projects, time and clients simple.

With Solo it is clear that design is just as important as functionality. Its clean look should appeal to the ‘left brained’ creative. With a strong use of typography throughout, the product has a crisp and clean aesthetic, which helps to present your business data in a visual way. This makes it easy to digest; no more scouring through spreadsheets. All in all this helps you to make quicker and more informed decisions about your projects and business.

    Clarendon – One of my fave typefaces!

  • Colleen C

    The typeface is Clarendon, which has a very distinctive “Q” in comparison to the other fonts.

    I am new to Freelancing and realized yesterday that I needed some sort of cloud based system to organize my projects. I have one that was going well during the summer and then went on hold, and when I have to pick it up again, I will have to search out all the bits of info. This looks like a great way to organize the bits and to keep track of billing too & and I LOVE the interface!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    The typeface is Clarendon. Looking forward to getting my hands on this tool as this could boost my work process for my current project. Can’t wait to see the upcoming iPhone or iPad app so I can even get maximum advantage of this tool, whenever I want, wherever I want. Took the 14-day trial and everything required.

    Thanks :)
