National Trust are a charity founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything they do. They look after special places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for ever, for everyone.
As a charity they rely for income on membership fees, donations and legacies, and revenue raised from our commercial operations. They have over 4.5 million members and 62,000 volunteers. More than 20 million people visit their pay for entry properties, while an estimated 100 million visit their open air properties.
We protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments.
Nobrow burst into existence in late 2008 as the joint creative endeavour of two friends and since its inception Nobrow Ltd. has sought to make great design, ground-breaking art and narrative, luscious production values and environmental consciousness central to its mission.
They strive both to bring fresh, young talent to wider audiences, as well as to remind the world of the great talents that have been producing stunning work for many years. They have sought to bring new stories to life, as well as to revive well-worn yarns for new generations of people.
They are a creative bunch and have pushed the envelope when it comes to new concepts, narratives, genres, formats, printing methods, production processes and design in ways that have come to redefine the standards of quality in visual publishing the world over.
St Mungo’s Broadways vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfill their hopes and ambitions.

St. Mungo’s support men and women through more than 250 projects and they believe in their clients’ potential. They are committed to every individual’s sustainable recovery.
Mr Four Fingers are a young creative duo inspired by the grit and grime of the London streets. An inspiration that has led them down a path of art, skulls and dark undertones. They are obsessed with what lies beneath, the tainted side – the unseen but only ever imagined.
We are a collaboration of two exploratory minds and Mr Four Fingers is our representative. Together we share art, illustration and design in the hope to infiltrate every home in the world.
