Hear from happy members…

“As a freelancer who works exclusively with socially and environmentally-conscious businesses, a showcase page in The Make It Collective Directory is the perfect platform for advertising my services. As many of the Makers in Australia’s handmade community are equally passionate about sustainability in business, it’s a no-brainer to have a presence in the Creative Services category and be discovered by my ideal client.”

— Milane, Macaw Marketing

“Having a listing in The Make It Collective Directory provides an opportunity for my services to be discovered by not only Australian makers, but also other creatives and retailers looking for graphic & web design services. I’ve always enjoyed the process of working with other creatives and am myself passionate about the handmade movement, so a listing in The Make It Collective Directory was a logical step in attracting more clientele from within the creative space. ”
