BETH INCLUDED AS ONE OF CHICAGO'S MOST INSPIRING ENTREPRENEURS

We are so proud of Beth! Voyage Chicago wrote an article about her and included her as one of Chicago's most inspiring entrepreneurs! How cool is that?! They contacted her about two months ago and asked if she wanted to answer a few questions about her business and being an entrepreneur. She of course, said, sure! And here we are. Beth is really honored and excited to be included. She started her business 8 years ago designing birthday party invitations and birth announcements for friends and family members and now you can find her designs on products such as travel mugs, doormats, stationery, gift bags, and more. Her products are for sale at major retailers like Target and Home Depot as well as online stores like Minted, MPix, Spoonflower, Wal-Mart and many more. You can read the full article here and pop over to Beth's website to see more of her work and where to shop. Her art is available for license, sale or commission, feel free to contact her directly if you're interested in working with her. Congrats Beth, we couldn't be more proud!!!

IN THE PRESS

While we're busy with last minute preparations for Blue Print and SURTEX, there have been lots of great pieces about us on various blogs and newsletters, so we thought we'd do a quick round up. Read on for features in:

  • Print & Pattern
  • Uppercase
  • Art & Design Licensing Source Book
  • Total Art Licensing
  • Pattern Observer
  • On the Surface: SURTEX Official Newsletter
  • Make Art That Sells
  • Make It In Design

Print & Pattern

The go-to website for the print and pattern industry has run a series of pieces about members of Four Corners in recent weeks.

First up there was a piece about the Young Designer Competition winners, including our own Pippa Shaw: Blue Print NY Competition Winners. Look at Pippa's gorgeous fliers!

Then we spotted Jules Anson's fabulous Blue Print flier in a feature about Cinnamon Joe Studio: Blue Print NY - Cinnamon Joe. Jules is Cinnamon Joe's latest signing and is taking a portfolio of brand new work to New York.

And check out this gorgeous feature on Jocelyn: SURTEX 2016 - Jocelyn Proust

And in the week before the show, Kevin was also picked by Print & Pattern for a feature: SURTEX 2016 - Kevin Brackley

 

Uppercase

In recent weeks Beth Schneider, Emma McGowan and Pippa Shaw have all featured in the Uppercase newsletter, All About You. You can sign up to this weekly newsletter here.

Art & Design Licensing Source Book

Check out this lovely 2-page spread on page 19, all about Four Corners at SURTEX and Blue Print.

Total Art Licensing

The trade magazine for art licensing featured Four Corners in its SURTEX preview and highlights section.

Pattern Observer

The website dedicated to textile design and the Textile Design Lab publishes a series of SURTEX previews in the run up to the show. We featured twice! SURTEX Preview: Four Corners Art Collective and SURTEX Preview: Kevin Brackley. We aren't surprised that the team at Pattern Observer have fallen for Kevin's fantastic geometric patterns.


On the Surface: SURTEX Official Newsletter

With the show nearly upon us, SURTEX are ramping up their emails to attendees. They put the spotlight on our debut at the show and also picked Emma McGowan as a newcomer to watch: Traveling 24,000+ Miles to Collect Themselves at SURTEX and First Time Exhibitors Plunge Right In.


Make Art That Sells

The website of Lilla Rogers Studio blockbusting e-courses ran tw lovely features - one on Kevin: Alumni Success Spotlight Interview with Kevin Brackley and another on Emma: Alumni Success Spotlight Interview with Emma McGowan

Make it in Design

Meanwhile the team at Make It In Design, ran a great feature all about Emma: Graduate Interview - Emma McGowan 

And the Make It In Design team have run a series of SURTEX previews including posts about Kevin and Jocelyn, and the whole Four Corners Art Collective.
