Bristol based independent design studio and artist collective, Garrett Creative, have just launched their ‘Design for Good’ programme in partnership with local delivery partners Voscur and City Funds.
Based at the Future Leap Hub for sustainable business, the team at Garrett Creative believe in using design as a force for good. That ethos is the motivation behind this project, which will offer grant funding (in kind) to support local charities and non-profits that are working tirelessly to make a positive social or environmental impact in the community.
The type of creative support will be tailored to the needs of the chosen charities, but will be offered from across the studio’s three service areas - Brand Design, Website Design and Digital & Print (marketing and comms).
The team aims to release 4 grants annually with the combined value of £10,000 in Bristol and the surrounding area. Applications for this pro-bono support will be accepted periodically throughout the year,and reviewed approximately every 13 weeks upon completion of work for the previously selected applicants.
Applications for the first round of support are open now and will close on the 1st December 2021 - if you’re a third-sector organisation and think you would benefit from the programme, please visit garrettcreative.co.uk/design-for-good/grant-funding to apply.
