The West of England Design Forum hosts Made You Look, a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene in the 21st century.

The West of England Design Forum and Thirteen are thrilled to present this very special screening and Q&A session with the film’s co-directors Anthony Peters and Paul O’Connor from the Look and Yes collective, illustrators Ed Cheverton and Ben O’Brien (AKA Ben the Illustrator).

Made You Look is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene in the 21st century and includes contributions from a top British creatives, publishers and agency owners including Anthony Burrill, Pete Fowler, Kate Moross, Fred Deakin of Airside, Jon Burgerman and Hattie Stewart. The film’s makers explore the idea that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue methods of creating despite living in a highly digital world. Made You Look premiered at Soho House as part of the Pick Me Up festival in spring 2015 and is currently doing a tour of selected design events and festivals.

If you care about the graphic arts, are interested in the tensions between the analogue and digital worlds or are simply looking for an antidote to an industry in a constant and accelerated state of redefinition and recalibration, this event promises to be a real treat
