We’re so excited that you’re interested in joining our uniqueMarketing andDesign Collective.


You’d be joining us in the early days of something that we believe is going to be truly special, for both our paying clients and for each and every one of our Collective members. Firstly we’d like to share bit about who we are, so you can decide whether we’re the right collaborative team for you:

Who are the Marketing and Design Collective? The Marketing and Design Collective is the vision of our founder Annalie Hempstead, and we know that in a changing world we’re creating something exciting for everyone involved. Annalie’s worked in senior marketing roles for over25 years and in that time she’s been both a client and agency specialist.
These experiences have been invaluable in terms of defining the Marketing and Design Collective. Over the coming months, days and years we’re excited about working with a team of incredibly talented and passionate marketeers and designers to build a new kind of marketing agency for the dynamic and exhilarating times that we’re living in. Gone are the days of marketing agencies charging crazy money to their clients and paying their team peanuts. Access to exceptional talent shouldn’t purely be the privilege of businesses and brands with huge marketing budgets.

How does it work?

1. In a nutshell, we’re creating a network of talented and collaborative marketing and design freelancers and small businesses.
2. We’re building an ongoing pipeline of new business with organisations of all shapes, sizes and sectors, through a proactive marketing and referrals campaign.
3. On receipt of a client brief, we identify the team that are best suited to complete it on behalf of The Collective.
4. Prior to presenting this to the client, we ensure the commitment and availability of the team.
5. Before embarking on a project we ask all members involved to sign a Service Level Agreement to ensure that they complete the project to expected standards and within expected timelines.
6. Each project is co-ordinated by an Account Manager with full transparency, so where applicable Collective members will be present in client meetings etc.

Our Mission is to be accessible to businesses of all shapes and sizes and to build collaborative teams of experts and professionals that work with our clients to realise their growth and development aspirations. We will achieve this through building an exceptional base of talented individuals and small businesses with strong personal values, our lowcost base and our policy to pay our freelancers and Collective partners what they’re worth.
As well as creating working groups for our clients, we’re very passionate about building a community that our Collective members can be proud and excited to be part of. We feel that this is particularly important in the remote working world that we’re moving in to and that it will form the foundation of some incredibly creative working groups that will make amazing things happen for each other and our clients.


7. To ensure an exceptional quality service for our clients, we’ll carry out reviews on the completion of each project and will engage with retained clients on a regular basis to ensure that our service is fully meeting their expectations.
