We make good, professional design accessible and affordable to those trying to make the world a better place.
Uncompromising in our social, environmental and human values, we’re a small social enterprise with a big heart. We reinvest or donate all our profits.
Founded in 1989, we share the values of three powerful and historical social movements.
- The co-operative movement’s ethical values of solidarity, openness, equality and social responsibility are as fundamental to graphics.coop today as they were to the Rochdale Pioneers more than 150 years ago.
- The desktop publishing revolution of the 1980s democratised print and design. Community printshops and alternative media blossomed. Widespread access to computers allowed anyone to design, print and distribute information.
- The internet revolution of the 1990s created the World Wide Web and open source philosophy – a belief that software design should be universally and freely available for modification and improvement.
