The Rundown

We provide our members the support & resources of a agency or firm while maintaining their individual artistic freedom.

Traditional settings have over-head costs which limit growth and retain credit for their staff’s work, leaving very little incentive for initiative.

Providing our members a consistent and managed flow of work offers:

  • the stability to be independent,
  • shared physical resources,
  • the collaborative environment to foster growth.

Benefits for Members:

  • Project management for quicker turnaround.
  • Consistent workflow
  • Combined resources (such as studio space, equipment, software, etc)
  • Professional studio in Edgehill Village
  • Combined portfolio attracts cooler projects.

Benefits for Clients:

  • One access point to a vast network 'local' human resources.
  • Quick turnarounds.
  • Consistent quality
  • Dedicated project manager (no more sketchy freelancers)
  • Confidentiality & data security.

How does it work?

- The collective acquires, develops & manages the project and assembles the appropriate team or member either based on scope of work or by publicly posting the job.

- Each team member is briefed by the project manager and assigned his/her tasks.

- Once work is completed, payment is delivered to member. Each member is allowed to use the project in their personal portfolio as long as the watermark and/or credit incorporates the collective's 'red dot'.

- Members are allowed to work with outside clients on their own but NOT with clients of the collective (unless it is approved prior).
