Project overview

Hobby Society Hobby Society is a one-stop- shop for Sydney hobbyists. It is a community market place where people who share the same hobby interact by either providing or using a service (for example: teaching, renting out space or tools).

About Client

They are the team of three passionate individuals, Stirling, Ana, and Rif. Their story began when Stirling found that it's almost impossible to hire a workshop in Sydney for his car-building project and there was no dedicated online site to find a rental workshop, so searching became a long and painful process. there was clearly a need for a single platform to bring together a hobby community, allow people to rent out spaces and tools and learn from each other. Stirling then recruited Ana and Rif to make his vision a reality!
