Strangers HQ is a generative PFP project created by Collective Strangers and artist Nick Kuchar. Inspired by adventure, modern design, and the early days of surf culture; this whimsical collection of characters is an ode to exploration and finding meaning in shared experiences.
Collective Strangers began as a web3 focused photography collective with a love for travel and sharing photos. We inspired the first community sourced NFT photography collection. Now we’re expanding beyond photography to become a travel hub for all of web3.
