The film is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century.

"This film documents the work of some of the most revered British graphic artists and illustrators including: Jon Burgerman, Anthony Burrill, Sophie Dauvois, Fred Deakin, Pete Fowler, Adrian Johnson, Kate Moross, and Helen Musselwhite to name a few. It also shines a light on the processes and craft that goes into their work, as well as their relationship with digital media. Their ideas still resonate and influence the next wave of designers"
Ed Matthews-Gentle from Creative Lancashire

Anthony Peters, who directed the film, said: "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."
