Two years ago, I picked up a copy of Col­lec­tive Hub to read on board my flight home to Europe af­ter yet an­other trip to Aus­tralia. I had fallen in love with the coun­try a few years be­fore, and came back over and over again. I wanted to move here badly but, run­ning my own busi­ness over­seas, I feared the chal­lenges a new be­gin­ning in Aus­tralia would bring. Flick­ing through your pages, I read about a group of surfers from the Sun­shine Coast [who were] on a quest to make the world a bet­ter place with their fash­ion la­bel. It was right then that I re­alised I just had to fi­nally jump. I landed in Europe, sold every­thing I owned and moved to Aus­tralia two months later. Best de­ci­sion of my life – thanks for kick­ing my fears in the butt, Col­lec­tive Hub! Alexan­dra Stelzl

I want to start by say­ing that I never buy mag­a­zines. In fact, the last time I bought a mag­a­zine was prob­a­bly at least 10 years ago. But when I saw your mag up on the stand in Coles last night, it was such a breath of fresh air. In light of a pretty hor­rific week for mi­nori­ties and wom­ankind [in Novem­ber 2016], it was a no-brainer for me to snap up a copy. Firstly, be­cause I love the Col­lec­tive Hub brand, and se­condly (and oh-so im­por­tantly), be­cause I’m will­ing to put my money where my mouth is. We need more di­ver­sity rep­re­sented in the me­dia – dif­fer­ent faces, dif­fer­ent voices, smart voices – and this is ex­actly what you’re do­ing. Maeva Heim

On a re­cent trip I picked up my first

Col­lec­tive Hub. It was love at first sight. I shut out the world and read ev­ery word from be­gin­ning to end. I’m a stay-ath­ome mum who has been stuck in a rut, not know­ing how to re­lease the cre­ative juices I have float­ing around. Read­ing that is­sue and see­ing all the awe­some let­ter­ing pieces in the Artist Takeover re­ally in­spired me to get back into let­ter­ing and to start sell­ing my prints and sta­tionery. Thank you for in­spir­ing me, for al­low­ing me to re­alise I can fail at times but I sure as hell can get back up and try again. Kim­ber­ley Eng­wicht
