As a company we sell printed work from the in house team as well as up and coming designers, which they send in themselves at a rate of 20% commission, operating under sale or return policy. We also provide a high quality printing service using a 44-inch EPSON printer, which produces the finest quality output without massive costs. Our shop also has screenprinting facilities, creating work upto size A2. For these of these printed outcomes we offer a low cost of 30% commission and sell your work in our shop.

Art School Wank
Art School Wank was born froma general distaste for art & design rhetoric, spurred by an education filled with box ticking anf inane buzzwords anf topics. The creative world is full of bullshitters, who believe their own personal brand of bollocks so fundamentally that they can’t even make an objective joke about it, or realise when someone is poking fun of them. It may be stupid but he was quite shocked when people were upset at being called out on this, he thought that creative folk were meant to be open to all ideas, embracing of diverse and obscure concepts, maybe I’m just as bad for believing in this stereotype... He says “So here I am, trying to strike a balance between being a pleasing designer while maintaining a distinctive witty style, don’t get me wrong, I don’t do it because I think I’m better than you, it’s not to belittle you or make you feel stupid, I would simply like people to see that it’s culture, it’s meant to be enjoyed, get out of your Helvetica gilded tower and stop taking everything so seriously!

Matthew is from a Northern Mining family, finding it hard to be accepted for wanting a career in Graphic Design. Fighting to be accepted by the elders in his village, they seem to have no interest in the arts only your pickaxe abilities but this hasn’t got Matthew down only motivated him more. As if that wasn’t hard enough he has been cursed with the lifelong disability of dyslexia. This constant battle with his mind has influenced his edgy and often controversial design. A laid back designer floating from project to project completing them to a highest standard around. He takes his inspiration and motivation from 3 iconic figures Gary Coleman, Chuck Norris and Jacque Cousteau who all are hero’s in his eyes.

Drew Millward Contact - Drew Millwood www.drewmillward.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Jay Ryan – Artist, Illustrator and owner of The Bird Machine. Drew likes to draw ‘the old fashioned way’, using pencils, pens and a love of the craft of illustration. While his subject matter can vary dramatically, he hopes that the attention to detail and the love of drawing is apparent throughout his work. He has exhibited throughout the US, UK, Europe and beyond, as well as having the pleasure of creating work for an ever growing international client base. ‘Drew Millward is actually able to see (and then accurately depict) the benign terror of what’s just beyond our world. What’s out there is potentially malevolent, but Drew is able to approach from such an angle that the Terror is not alerted, and we all get to see the inhuman, eternal awfulness as if we were watching a BBC nature program.’
