Design talent knows no boundaries, and we love uncovering new artists from across the globe. Inspiring and cultivating creative flair helps open doors for young artists breaking through the ever-competitive design industry – at Photowall, we believe our designer collaborations showcase unlimited creative potential and ingenuity. We’re so proud of collaborating with such passionate, creative minds.
Since we began our mission, we’ve searched the globe for up-and-coming creative talent. Amazingly, artists have started to contact Photowall directly to enquire about collaborations. Our position as an e-commerce business means we live and breathe the digital life – we love searching online for design talent and keeping tabs on what’s happening in the design industry.
The collaboration process is so simple. When designers contact Photowall, they usually email customer services which then gets passed onto the Product Manager, Amber Johnson. Amber reads every single email that comes through from eager designers, reviews their portfolios and does a bit of further research into what they’re about. If we feel their style would fit nicely in our designer wallpaper collection we can feature them on the site in a matter of days
Photowall’s collaborations initially started with young illustrators and photographers. LileSadi is a small textile illustration studio established by a designer sister duo. Based in Rotterdam, the two illustrators design cushions, accessories and kitchenware. The pair’s style is abstract, completely unique, and brings a feeling of pureness. LileSadi originally contacted Photowall and asked if there was chance of a collaboration – we loved their designs so much we decided to feature them on the site within a few weeks.
Photography has always been a major influence in Photowall’s organisation; and that’s why we contacted the fantastic photography curator 1x. 1x is a European network of photographers we now work in partnership with - photographers that want to gain more exposure can become a member and get their work seen.
Talented Swedish photographer Viktor Sundberg is another passionate artist on our books. We were thrilled when Viktor approached Photowall for a collaboration; he’s a nature photographer who manages to catch the spirit of a scene with just one click.
At Photowall, we’re always on the hunt for new talent – we recently participated in a Swedish design competition to further our reach of encouraging new artists. The design competition was in collaboration with Illustratörcentrum - Sweden’s largest agency for illustrators and graphic designers. A jury chose five designs and we now have the finalists in our designer collaborations collection.
Looking for creatively empowered people is what we do best. We really want to see people that have suggestions about what they would like to do and what they want to get out of their collection, but if they don’t have that we’re happy to work something out together. We’re keen to work with both new and established designers – talents that are doing design as a hobby or students that have not made their name yet; we love such an interesting mix of people.
