Towards a Fairer Gig Economy
Illustration and layout 2017
‘Towards a Fairer Gig Economy’ is a small collection of articles, curated and published by Meatspace Press, examining the social and economic problems associated with the ‘gig economy’. I was in charge to develop a graphical representation for each article and I curated its overall layout.
The gig economy includes a wide range of labour carried out by workers providing services as couriers, taxi drivers, online freelancers and more. Issues examined include an over-supply of labour, falling wages, long hours and poor working conditions. Each article makes suggestions for how these problems can be addressed and how a fairer gig economy can be built: including through regulation, collective bargaining and wider policy recommendations.
