Meet the Artists

Our awesome team of ‘Bearhuggers’

The Bearhugs for Australia collective brings together creatives from around the world, including artists, illustrators, typographers & graphic designers. Each has created designs representing our core values of solidaritymateshipsupport and hope for those affected by the Australia’s bushfires.

Their artistic styles vary greatly, though they all have one thing in common… a HUGE heart and a desire to play an active part in the Australian Bushfire Relief. All designs have been generously donated.

On behalf of Australia, our heartfelt thanks and bearhugs go out to you!
