Cygnet INK is a creative platform for Art and Design students and graduates of the University of Lincoln designed to bridge the gap between education and employment. Cygnet INK provides its members with opportunities that will guide them through the first stages of their career by showcasing their talent across the nation.
Cygnet INK was founded by a team of Illustration graduates from the University of Lincoln with an eclectic knowledge and strong creative background, working within the Art and Design industry alongside a variety of different clients within the UK and US.
We believe that introducing fresh talent into the competitive market is imperative for the creative industry to survive. Having seen the strong potential the University of Lincoln has to offer, we are confident that by following the 5 steps of PRIDE, all of our members will reach their prospective goals.
We will start our journey by promoting each individual artist and design at a series of exhibitions and events in and around Lincolnshire. At each exhibition, we intent to sell prints of your work to help you earn and you study and to start your potential freelancing career.
Attending trade shows is not only important for networking, but to understand the competition, market and keeping up to date with the industry trends. Not only will we represent our members at trade shows around the nation, we will also give them a chance to attend and see what it’s like for themselves.
In close partnership with the University, we guide our members in the right direction for their prospective career, connecting them with the industry professionals, advancing chances of employment.
