A rare and candid insight into the work of some of the UK’s top creative talent, including beautifully shot footage of artists at work and play in their own creative environments.

Creative Lancashire in association with D&AD and Creative Hive invites you to a series of special preview screening of graphic art documentary, Made You Look. The film will be introduced by, Anthony Peters who created the film with others at Look & Yes design collective.

The film is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century. Via interviews with top British creatives, publishers and agency owners it explores the fact that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue means of creating things, even though we are living at the height of the digital era.

"The film isn’t just about the creative brilliance of people who have informed the way our world looks. It's also a story that sympathises with the way many people feel in the modern age: overwhelmed and bombarded with information twenty four hours a day, longing for some time away from the multitude of screens through which we work, consume, create and record the world around us.
So many creative people are turning to mediums that take them away from their computers. Methods of making work that involve making real, tactile items to be cherished and kept, instead of being consumed and forgotten. However, very few creatives could have an audience or career without the trappings of the internet and social media, and this tension between the analogue and digital world is the story we are pursuing in Made You Look.".
Anthony Peters


The last 15 years has seen a boom in the UK graphic arts and illustration industry, with a DIY scene emerging and prospering alongside new and affordable leaps in technology.

So much of our lives is now spent in the virtual digital realm, so what will become of the tactile objects we all hold so dear? Will we see books disappear in our lifetime? And why are more and more creatives moving away from the computer and getting back to using their hands to create art, both commercially and for art’s sake.
Made You Look is a documentary which sets out to explore the landscape of the commercial arts in the 21st Century. It’s a film that gives an insight into how modern creative people feel about the challenges and triumphs of living in a hyper digital age.
