About the freelancers behind the collective


Nina Hendy


Nina came up with the concept for an online curated community of that gives clients direct access to top Australian freelancers in 2015.

The platform came about after growing frustration at the number of platforms of agencies popping up that promised to support freelancers, but only put a fence between freelancers and clients. Or asked clients to upload briefs and got freelancers to bid against eachother, which only drives down quality and price.

She scoured the country to find a small group of creative freelancers to bring the concept to life.

The Freelance Collective gives top talent a place to promote their skills and showcase their work alongside like-minded creative peeps and be part of a genuinely supportive curated community of talent.
