about-us

The short answer to why we created ‘One Mega Collective’ is, we love fashion, iconic imagery, videography & innovative design and think inspiring creative professionals should have a free space to display their work. We also want the coolest brands on the market to have a simple platform to discover, save, share and contact the perfect creatives freelancers for their projects with the freedom to collaborate and share ideas directly.

We have found that our brand clients don’t just want the best creative talent for their projects, they want influencers and with an increase in the power of social media engagement, we have seen the demand for creative control to be given back to the individual.

‘One Mega Collective’ is a data-driven digital and fashion led platform offering a place for curated production access with the purpose of helping brands & individuals source their favourite shoot crews for their projects.

Users can collaborate, cast and follow directly with approved creatives in the fashion industry. We wanted members to do this in a way that enhanced their search and casting experience bringing agency sensibilities to the online space, with social media influencer access, pin & mood board curation that at the same time sends traffic back to the creatives they are following.

We search out the most creative, influential and innovative portfolios in the photography, film and design industries and with our simple search and save function, buyers and brands can access a world-wide database of freelance creatives, hand selected and presented in one place.

 

‘One Mega Collective’ gives freelancers the opportunity to showcase their work, network, and find job opportunities through direct access to a worldwide database of brands and buyers, all within one site. A design-focused platform, creatives can customise their online portfolios with images, video and music as well as displaying their biography, previous clients, testimonials and social links so that brands have all the information they require to choose, share, favourite and directly contact their preferred creatives.

Members can search specific job posts, share and discuss projects with fellow users, follow inspirational profiles and grow their brand and freelancer followers through submitting their latest work in the Showcase section. By receiving recommendations and improving their rating, freelancers can be listed as a featured creative meaning that their work has even more chance of being seen and shared by buyers all over the world. All members of ‘One Mega Collective’ are showcased across our blog and social media channels to offer them and their work maximum exposure. No contracts, No Fees!

‘One Mega Collective’ is a platform that allows brands, producers and creative directors to discover, organise and favourite freelance creatives in one place. We wanted to create a tool that enhances our clients search experience, whilst saving them valuable time now and in the future by providing a unique search and save service.

Marketing campaigns are changing, PR & shoot production is evolving and brands are increasingly integrating social media into their marketing strategies, turning to these platforms to source talent. The ability to bypass the middle man and facilitate direct interactions between brands and creatives is one of the most important aspects of ‘One Mega Collective’ and the result is the freedom to discover, inspire, network and collaborate without boundaries, commission or fees.

Brands can find their shoot crews, locations and design teams for a range of advertising projects, post job opportunities and promote their latest campaigns/products all through the ‘One Mega Collective platform’
