We recently read an interesting book on business which states that the most successful companies ask themselves questions about what service they will provide, rather than stating what they will do, when they launch. This encourages business owners to stay relevant and perspective to the market around them and their customers. There are many books and blogs on this, however there doesn't seem to be many relevant to smaller, handmade businesses. So here at Drawn Together we have compiled a list of questions which we hope will help you launch or grow your creative business.
What better way to start 2018 than to look to the sky and catch a glimpse the beautiful Wolf Moon, peaking on January the 2nd.

The Drawn Together Art Collective was founded a few years ago in an eclectic South London studio. Inspired by our surroundings and each others work, we decided to join forces and embark on a new creative direction together. We continued working from our first studio for over a year before we thought it was time to move on to something more permanent (and somewhere a little bit warmer...). We’ve recently moved in to a lovely newly built art studio in Streatham in South London, situated in stunning refurbished railway arches, surrounded by a beautiful open roof atrium and original Victorian London yellow-stock brickwork.
