We are ecstatic to announce that innovative wallpaper design company Graham & Brown will be producing a Live Brief on Module 4! Graham & Brown was founded by two dear friends, Harold Graham and Henry Brown in 1946 who started a wallpaper revolution for a public desperate to brighten their homes after years of war. As a company they put much stock in a personal approach to business & having a solid respect for their employees & customers. This in turn lead to brilliant innovation, creativity & a modern management approach. The 1980's saw Graham & Brown launch their now famous 'Superfresco' brand, an easy to hang & take down wallpaper which went on to become the best selling wallpaper brand in the world, available in over 50 countries! The 1990s brought further innovations and by 1992 Graham & Brown produced the world’s first ‘batchless’ wallcoverings & new associations were forged with designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. He was quickly joined by Julien Macdonald, Amy Butler, hemingwaydesign, Marcel Wanders & most recently Kelly Hoppen. Innovation of thought & action has seen the company drive the industry from the doldrums into growth. This is an amazing opportunity to gain REAL design experience from an amazing brief along with the chance to present your work to an exciting, well-established 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!
