Artisan manufacturer can build audience for creatives

T-shirt creator and online retailer Ixar Design is inviting independent Cambridge artists to get involved in a new creative journey.

Ixar is run by Cambridge-based Alex Lowrie and George Culbert, both aged 24.

“We’re trying to give people who don’t have much of a voice a bigger audience,” says George.

Ixar started life late last year as the duo, who have known each other since school, decided on entrepreneurship.

“We got to a point where we thought ‘why not?’,” says George.

“We now have a total of 30 t-shirts on sale,” says Alex. “They are split between five different collections – each artist has their own collection.”

“It’s £20 for an Ixar t-shirt,” George adds. “From that the artist gets a big chunk, and we do the promotions.”

“We have a rough idea of what we like – everything so far has been hand drawn, then digitally edited,” Alex says.

Prospective artists can email jointhefamily@ixardesign.co.uk for details.

“Just send us your Instagram account or online portfolio – or any other assets,” says Alex.

Meanwhile any Cambridge Independent reader wanting to buy a T-shirt from Ixar can get a 20 per cent discount until July 8. Just type ‘Indy20’ at the checkout to activate the offer.
