Party Photos: The Freelance Marketplace Launch Party

At LQ, August 5, 2004

Posted August 16, 2004

We launched our new Freelance Marketplace just about a month ago, and we wanted to show off to all our editor friends how this powerful new tool can help them find the freelancers they need. At the very swanky midtown hotspot LQ, we provided cocktails and canapes, and mb founder Laurel Touby gave all the editors in attendance a quick course in how to use the Marketplace, where freelancers post their profiles and folks with assignments look for talented people who are ready to handle the project.

Don't forget to read what The Economist had to say about the Freelance Marketplace—and stay tuned for more FM launch parties, for writers, designers, and other kinds of creatives.
