Our Honest Opinion

Creating thought provoking, inspiring and meaningful artwork (unless you are a naturally born creative) is time consuming and difficult, especially for busy grassroots activists who spend their time focusing on their cause. But artwork inspires, empowers and elevates the messages activists are trying to convey. The Greats provide people with free and professional artwork to amplify their message, making it easier for advocates to focus on running successful campaigns. We love how simple and easy The Greats make it to use their platform. The library is expertly curated with clear themes and an easy filtering system to find exactly the type of artwork you need to catch people’s attention. With an array of different styles from many different artists, you are bound to find something that fits your organisation’s brand and style. From simple graphics to intricate designs, whatever you need can be found on the platform. And if for some reason the artwork you want to use needs a tweak to fit your message better, you can download the work file and alter it in the way you need to elevate your message. Their ethos, that art is a weapon for social change, empowers activists all around the world and takes the guesswork out of illustrating their messages.
