We are so excited to reveal that prestigious stationery company Crane & Co. will be creating a Live Brief! Crane & Co. has been dedicated to the art of classic correspondence for more than two centuries. A family-owned company since 1801, Crane is the USA's oldest stationer. Before the United States of America were united, & still today, Crane was the choice of Revolutionary patriots, presidents, first ladies, kings and queens, captains of industry, heads of state & just about any celebrity who has stepped on the red carpet. Even Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt used Crane stationery to send their annual holiday cards! Crane has a highly skilled team of artisans based in Massachusetts and design studios in Maine and New York City. They provide a combination of high quality detail & state-of-the-art technology in all of their product design. In 2012 Crane also acquired William Arthur which creates beautifully printed, contemporary  stationery that turns once-in-a-lifetime occasions into lasting memories. This is an amazing opportunity to gain REAL design experience from a brilliant brief along with the chance to present your work to an innovative company.

Many of our graduates are now big players within the design industry & we're proud to say we have really nurtured some amazing talent!
