Calling All Future Makers!

Grand Matter is excited to announce they’re on the lookout for a brand new crop of creatives to join their newly launched Future Makers programme

Working towards a more diverse illustration industry, Future Makers is exclusively open to illustration-based artists from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, ready to take the leap into the commercial illustration world with the support of their team and artists.

You might be a college leaver, a recent graduate, or a newbie. What matters is a strong sense of who you are as an artist and what you’d like to achieve, along with a healthy dose of creative curiosity. 

As a Future Maker you’ll get a place on the program for one year, with exclusive representation from Grand Matter, and all the guidance and support you’ll need to develop your portfolio with the aim of securing some exciting commissions. There are three places available.
