The Royal Academy of Arts have a fantastic opportunity for British designer-makers to submit their most distinctive products to be selected for the next RAted range. RAted is the RA’s range of hand-picked products from fresh and emerging designer-makers. This exciting range is showcased at their Burlington Gardens shop in the heart of Mayfair and through their online store.
Over the years, the RA has supported and collaborated with many designers, building a range of uniquely inspired products for their shop – and the RAted range is just the latest in the series of collaborations.
They are looking for the finest British quality, originality, form and function. This open call is a great opportunity to get valuable feedback, support and direction to help you further develop your career as a designer.
You should be a designer-maker based in the UK who has products in production. Not having shown at any major trade shows, you will be in the early stages of developing your career – your retail exposure will be limited to a small number of independent shops or galleries, and your on-line presence should be limited to your own website, Etsy shop or similar.
To submit your work for consideration, please fill in their online form here. The closing date for submissions is 15 September 2014. Successful applicants will be invited to present their range of products to the RA at the open call on 28 September 2014.
