James Emmerson of 1973, a greetings card designer, manufacturer and distributor who work with some of the most amazing illustrators, designers and brands, including Aurelie Guillerey, eBoy, Gumo, Sanna Annukka, Pintachan amongst others. Creating and selling artwork for cards, prints and other really great stuff!
Mike Levy from Castor & Pollux, Brighton’s friendliest, beach front gallery, found half way between the two piers specialising in print and illustration. Castor and Pollux exhibits and massive range of super talented new and established, local and international artists.
This is an amazing opportunity to come and learn more about the industry and how you can get your work out there. So if you’ve got questions about licensing, creating lines or just how the industry ticks, you’ll never have a better opportunity to talk to these gurus!
