little hobo project

littlehoboproject.com was built entirely by hand (literally – sticks, rope and more), with a lot of love and oh so much inspiration.

Read Sprout Daily’s write-up: here
See The National Grid’s behind the scenes: Here

“In order to create an identity & deliver a website for LHP, it needed to be designed to reflect a company that doesn’t need to pride itself on its polished looks, but more on the quality of the projects that it creates & the people it brings together…[thus] we stripped our ideas back to basics. We decided to build the website by hand, out of [real] sticks, [real] string & a whole lot of [genuine] love.” The National Grid

“Simply, Little Hobo Project has grown out of a grassroots approach to communication. Its focus is connecting individuals with individuals, causes with organisations, organisations with businesses and concepts with the people to action them. ‘Wandering Ideas. Made.’

LHP Overview (as featured on Sprout Daily):

“Creative individuals and independent thinkers are more empowered then ever to realise ideas and pursue dreams. So…bring together the right people, those you respect and trust – and anything is possible.

Thus we are based on the collective concept. We highly value the members of our Collective as a creative arsenal. With entwined roots in sports, fashion, travel, music and the arts, we offer diverse opportunities for project management but most importantly we love when ideas don’t get put on the shelf but get brought to the table – and we can bring the right people together to make them happen.

Our underlying requirement is that any client, collective member or brand we work with, must have a genuine interest in supporting the philanthropic community as part of their professional strategy. Philanthropy – from the ancient Greek understanding of – the desire to better man kind, NOT just giving away money.” Little Hobo Project
