Ask DN: Design Collectives?

over 7 years ago from

My partner and I are interested in starting a multidisciplinary design collective with some friends of ours who have also expressed interest in the same idea, but even though everyone we've talked to is on board / has expressed the same desire to us, we're struggling to find a "point" to it all.

I realize there are some pros to being part of a collective, eg. extended networking, branding, access to other disciplines, but it stills all feels very loose and unstructured.

Does anyone have any experience with design collectives? (or even art collective to an extent)

Has anyone benefitted positively from being a part of one?

    I've worked in and with a few and the fact it's loose and unstructured is the best thing.

    Just start one and have some fun, not everything needs to have a purpose or a goal. Just go with it and see where it takes you.
