Rise of the Collective

As the creative landscape continually evolves, so does the way we work and how we collaborate. I’ve been noticing lately a potentially not-so-new trend of people forming “collectives” rather than studios, which is not only nice to see, but a really awesome idea. Collectives are a great way to work with different people and form bigger teams, while still remaining independent entities. Three really caught my eye and I wanted to share them for anyone thinking of starting something similar!
