A Bright New Generation – Highlights from Bologna 2014!

BRIGHT BOLOGNA

The next generation of amazing talent came through loud and clear from The Bright Group at Bologna 2014.

As one of the only agencies without a stand or an agents table, our 4 stealth bomber style agents worked the floor where you could only view Bright work in our latest portfolios with a pre-booked meeting in the creative space of your stand with art and books on show. Artwork presented at Bologna and The London Book Fair 2014 is now live on site!

This year was also a special year with so many of our artists joining us for Prosecco and Bologna madness, having them in toe meant more fun, great creative ad-hoc meetings  and crashing parties and generally just having the warm, fabulous, friendly, excited, enthusiastic and dedicated bunch of talented artists you could ever meet just hanging out. The Bright community doesn’t just rep talent – we are a select talented networked group.

Bright is growing to be one of the most well respected talent agencies in the world, we look for talented people, we find them, we nurture them and we manage them to be some of the most successful, award winning and respected Illustrators you could wish to find.

As the year really couldn’t have started any better for us here at Bright, it was a great pleasure to receive comments like, “You have an amazing eye”, “Bright is the first stop when we shop for art”, “You do it differently” & “You’re all so much fun to work with!” – We work tirelessly for our Illustrators as well as our clients, so to hear encouraging words like this, lets us know we’re doing something right! It really was a great fair and we can’t wait for next year!

On the Monday night we held a lively Bright party for our artists & clients at our amazing apartment we rented for the week.  #Oscars-style-selfie!
