Handmade art and design is a celebration of the power of the human hand and eye. JUMP champions craft and creativity in this digital age and is driven by a love of physical materials. The hands-on approach has had a huge revival in the design world; screenprint, letterpress, woodblock, embroidery, ceramics and paper craft have become commonplace in graphic design, branding and advertising.

Instagram is at its peak and we have to admit that here at JUMP we just love it! Here you’ll find a selection of 5 local Instagram accounts and 5 international ones that inspire us and share creative content related to music, architecture, memes, graphic design, photography, culture, illustration and travel.
Anything you see that has a purpose, has been created with an end user in mind. This can be anything from a tea cup to the Large Hadron Collider; design and functionality decisions have been made that consider how a user thinks and feels when interacting with said product.
