The Brief

To help us find the right people, we’re opening a gallery. It’s called the 'Super Small Gallery', and it’s going to be the smallest gallery in Southampton – based in our office on Town Quay. You want the job? This is your shot. We’re inviting you to submit a piece of work for this gallery, which will act as your application.

The theme is “What inspires you?”, which you can interpret however you’d like. Your submission can come in any form that you think would be suitable for online or offline display. The important thing is that it’s true to what you want to do, and gives us a sense of your creativity and skillset.
