Creatives Inc. was founded in 2007. Our first products were for the stationery industry, working with artists from London and LA. Today we work with new and established artists from across the UK, US and Central Europe.
We are expanding into fashion, retail and product design, publishing and designing bespoke ranges for retail organisations. Today’s retail world is a difficult one, and the pressure to create beautiful & individual product is a key to success in today’s market, as well as managing cost and quality.
Creatives Inc., using its collective of illustrators & graphic designers can help.
For the Client
We provide a platform for Artists to show their work. If you find someone you like the look of, please let us know rather than directly approaching the artist. We aren’t being precious, We have two good reasons…
1: We strive to operate within ethical guidelines where both Designers, Publishers & Retailers all benefit. These rules can work very well for both client and artist. We dont live on fresh air and NOT giving Creatives Inc credit means we are restricted on who we bring to the table and how we can plan projects. This affects us and the industry as a whole.
2: We are also discreet; you wont see our name bandied about the High Street [unless you want to sing our praises of course]. Its not about us. We’re all about getting the product out there, getting you the best return possible.
If required, we can project manage your printing requirements from start to finish. The design, layouts, bar-codes, packaging & delivery. Or we can just research & sell you some stunning designs for stationery, t shirts & textiles on behalf of our wonderful designers.
Where possible we will always try to base our production in the UK, and source products from sustainable sources. Manufacturing in Great Britain needs our support, small print runs are more accessible and can still be cost effective depending on your budget.
We are always looking at the bigger picture, and we learn something new everyday, which is why Creatives Inc. won the ‘Best New Business’ award for the Thames gateway region in 2008. In 2009 we were nominated for a Henry award – the equivalent of an Oscar in the card industry [there are over 16,000 entries].
If you would like to discuss your challenges with friendly, like minded professionals then either fill in our contact form, or contact us on the number or email below.
For the Artist
We don’t operate as an ‘agent’ in the traditional sense. If you are an illustrator, artist or designer, we only take commission on what you sell through us. We don’t ask for exclusivity on all your work, just the artwork that we sell through Creatives Inc. All points are negotiable.
Where possible we will always try to ensure the artist keeps their copyright. Or at least ensure the designer has some idea of how & where the artwork will be used. More and more, the buying public are keen to know where their products come from, and having a designers name on a product can be a high selling point.
We promote your artwork through our website and through physical portfolios when visiting clients. We would appreciate if you are approached for work that has been featured on Creatives Inc that you involve us in the process, as we can also can advise. We do work on trying to support your opportunities.
