The Russian Club in Hackney is currently playing host to the debut London show of Mill Co and its eclectic bunch of designers, photographers, artists and illustrators. All around the theme of community

Mill Co is another take on the collective idea. It’s run by Claire Martin and Liz Birkbeck, two friends originally from Rochdale, also home to the Co-operative movement. The latter, they say, inspired Mill Co’s collaborative approach, which they describe as “a virtual mill and online community of freelance and independent creative collaborators”. Clients can draw on this pool of talent on projects which Mill Co will manage.

The show features work from various Mill Co peeople including Suzie Webb (top) and Ant Baena (below)
