The Factory seed was planted many years before it was registered as a business, having evolved from Grant’s passion for art and design into the thriving hub of creativity it is today.
After winning numerous awards and recommendations from a young age, Grant discovered his love for all things creative and set about turning his talents into a career. Following years of study at Night School, the completion of several Business Courses, and five years experience designing and implementing exhibition stands, Grant was offered a lucrative position as the Set Designer for a prominent London based company.
Whilst making his preparations to leave Perth, he was approached by several disappointed clients, urging him to stay and start his own business.
That little nudge was all he needed, and The Factory was born on the 11th of November, 1991. After a four month working holiday where he travelled the world and studied various design cultures, Grant returned to Perth to firmly establish his business.
With his head full of inspiration and aspirations, he set The Factory up in Balcatta, where – 30 years later – it continues to evolve and expand.
