Award winning integrated agency, Proctor + Stevenson are currently recruiting Design and Motion Graphics interns

The West of England Design Forum is thrilled to be partners on ARTCRANK BRS 2014. 

ARTCRANK BRS 2014 will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by UK artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for £35 each. Admission is free.


Call for Artists + Designers

We’re still in the process of selecting a venue and picking a date. But a poster show needs poster artists, so we’re starting there!

We are now accepting artist submissions for our 2014 show. Please note that we have a strict locals-only policy, and will only consider artists and designers who live and work in the greater Bristol area.

To be considered for the show, send three digital samples of previous art and design work (URLs, JPGs, PDFs, etc.) to us via email.

While we definitely look for experience with screen-printing, letterpress and other craft printing techniques, your samples do not need to be posters and/or bike-related — just work that shows your skills and style.

Please do not submit proposed/spec poster designs — only artists and designers who are selected for the show will be asked to create new work. We’ll share specific guidelines for the show with all prospective artists who submit work for consideration.

The Call For Artists + Designers closes on Saturday 9 August  — submit your samples today!

Please check back for updates, and follow ARTCRANK on TwitterFacebook and Instagram for the latest news. And if you’d like to see photos and videos from previous events, connect with us on Flickr and Vimeo as well. See you soon!
