- +44 (0)121 331 5808
George Hart was the first member of his family to go to University, which has given him an understanding of the challenges students face when going to universities.
The enthusiasm of a wonderful art teacher at school inspired George to follow his creative ambitions and make the most of his talent. This encouraged him to apply to a Foundation Course at the University of Sunderland, followed by Degree at Norwich University of the Arts.
After the completion of his degree George worked within the creative industries for seventeen years as a Freelance Illustrator/Designer, mainly working in London, but also nationally. Some of the commercial clients he worked with include companies such as The Sunday Times, Channel 4, Conde Nast Publishing, Hodder and Stoughton Publishers, Brian Eno & War Child, British Airways, Commonwealth Institute, etc.
During this period George undertook his MA in Illustration at the Royal College of Art. This proved both inspirational and pivotal in his work, but also highly important in his decision and desire to help develop future creatives.
