What Are we?
The 24th Collective is a group of handpicked artists and freelancers collectively working on art and paid projects. We hope to achieve excellence in creative design by combining the best of a group of freelancers. In it's essence a global creative agency formed by freelancers working together. We believe in Success Through Collaboration.
The Idea & Concept
When companies or businesses hire freelancers they usually hope to get their work done at a relatively lower price than from a creative agency, and all freelancers have strengths and weaknesses; which means sometimes, the outcome of projects might not be of the same standard as that of a professional creative agency. With the 24th Collective we hope to do the best for both groups - making sure that freelancers aren't under-paid for their work and that the hiring agencies get the best possible final product through the combined effort from experts in each field.
When a new project comes up, we would assign a small team of selected freelancers along with a project manager to work on the project. Individual work is assigned accordingly by the manager and the whole project is managed through an online app like InVision
or directly via email depending on the requirements.
Freelancers are not required to work exclusively with the 24th Collective and they are able to accept or reject projects as they wish. Freelancers submit their price quotation for the work beforehand and the payments are made to the respective freelancers via PayPal.
We're currently looking for:
Any member of the 24th Collective bringing in a new project to the group will receive a 5% commission off the project and all freelancers taking part in the project will be credited on the official portfolio. EXTRA-PERKS
All 24th Collective freelancers are featured on our website and promoted constantly though our social media networks, they will also be entitled to other benefits such as free business cards and websites in the future based on their contributions to the collective.
Invite Request Form
Companies or businesses hiring us for their projects would first have to submit a detailed description of their project and the 24th Collective would do an analysis and put together the best team of freelancers based on the specific needs. We would then provide a quotation for the project. If the quotation is approved we would begin work on the project.The project manager would be the main point of contact for clients who will be able to view progress in the project and request for changes during the process. W
e provide a premium quality service for our clients through every step of the design process.
Interested clients are welcomed to get in touch via email email@example.com
