Future Makers

We’re excited to announce we’re on the lookout for a brand new crop of creatives to join the Grand Matter family as part of our first annual Future Makers programme. We want to see a more diverse illustration industry. For this reason Future Makers is exclusively open to illustration-based artists belonging to typically underrepresented groups in the industry, ready to take the leap into the commercial illustration world with the support of our team and artists. You might be a college leaver, a recent graduate, or a newbie to the industry. 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 up to three places available.
