BRIGHT, the concept of Laura Callan, was created together with her sister Tamsin and illustrator and close friend Roxane Dewar, in 2016.
Based in London and starting out as a 40 page zine, BRIGHT’s aim has always been to push boundaries, create conversations around veganism and ethical living whilst spreading awareness and compassion.
Since launching, BRIGHT has traded at a number of events in the UK and hosted creative workshops at festivals and with brands such as LUSH and Adidas.
In 2018 the zine rebranded to an 80 page magazine, giving the team the space they needed to create the premium lifestyle magazine they always wanted.
In 2019, BRIGHT they opened the doors to their new multifaceted home, The BRIGHT Store and The BRIGHT Club, in East London.
Upstairs, The BRIGHT Store, is a coffeeshop and ethical lifestyle store, showcasing some of London’s best vegan baked goods, treats and beauty products.
Downstairs, The BRIGHT Club, is the UK’s first vegan members club. Aiming to support and nurture vegan businesses through networking, co-working and collaboration in order to create a hub for London’s vegan community based on ethical and sustainable values.
