Civilised Humans, an online art gallery and consumer design agency, has launched. They make art, sell art, collaborate in art projects and welcome commissions for art. It’s a place for creative people to sell their work to an informed audience, as well as a place for unique and individual pieces.
The eclectic gallery contains illustrations, montages, photography and typography. Pieces show new and interesting views of our favourite cities, remixing the ‘photocopy and sellotape’ styled old punk flyers, giving old school rap lyrics a typographic makeover and taking unconventional vintage photos and bringing them up to date with a modern twist.
Anything can be customised to a bespoke style such as an old photo, or a favourite saying or custom-made design materials for a special event. Commissions are also welcomed for anyone who wants to bring their own creative idea to life.
Civilised Humans is the brainchild of Jimmy Hunter, a Creative Director and Art Director with over 20 years’ experience in direct and advertising agencies such as multi award winning CHI and BBH. He had the idea when Noisy Associates, the agency he founded with Marketing Director, Jeni Patrick, saw an increase in requests from consumers for bespoke design projects, digital art commissions, wedding branding and invitations. The requests mostly came from creative people who were looking for personalised work that was the same quality that they are used to in their professional lives.
“After lots of conversations with our associates from the Creative Community, we realised that, like us, they all have a bottom drawer of ideas - products they could offer to consumers such as photography, illustrations, graphics. So, the idea to create a consumer design agency and a gallery where we could sell our curated, and created, art made sense”, said Hunter.
The artwork comes in A3, A2 and A1 prints, A1 and A0 canvasses as well as wallpaper on request. Everything in the gallery is available to buy. Prints & posters are sent unframed so each piece can be personalised with a frame of the buyers choosing.
