How are members

Spacesuit Academy recruits must meet three principal requirements:"the eye", character, diversity.

Skills can be learned; "the eye" cannot. We look carefully at portfolio submissions to search for people who see the world differently but in a style that will complement our existing team.

Character is next. We look for creatives who are absorbed in their art and who want to help our team build something much bigger than individual egos. Passion, not a paycheck, should be the driving motivation.

And we look for difference in perspective, heritage, culture and interests. We want complementary styles but unique voices who can tell stories in new ways.

How can i join?

There is no application form.

Our senior team invests a huge amount of time and personal attention into the programme and so we can only invite a small amount of creative to join the academy at any one time.

We carefully and proactively search out those who think may be a good fit. However, if you think you have what it takes to successfully graduate from the Spacesuit Academy, please send us an electronic portfolio to consider.
