The resource is written by Alison Branagan. Alison is an author, visual arts and creative industries consultant. She is also an associate lecturer at Central Saint Martins.Over the last decade she has written several business start-up and enterprise books; her key text is The Essential Guide to Business for Artists & Designers, second edition, published by Bloomsbury.
