BIO_ Born January 3rd 1996, Wil Barker is a multidisciplinary Graphic & Media Design graduate from UAL's London College of Communication, and the one-man-team behind YOUSEVEN™.
In 2011, after discovering his interest in Art & Design, Wil started sharing his work online under the pseudonym "u7", eventually growing a small but interested audience and developing it all into the studio & brand that still stands over 7 years later.
Whilst initially focused on purely Graphic Design work, Wil discovered Photography & Videography through his association with Parkour, and has since expanded his professional creative practice to accommodate these extra disciplines & interests.
Ideas of Multidisciplinism inherently flow through Wil's work — Wil wrote his university thesis on the importance of Multidisciplinism, and how the approach to working allows him to work on a variety of projects, and aspire to be the strongest Creative he can be.
Upon graduating, Wil reignited his passion for designing clothing & products and is currently working on releasing collections exclusively via the YOUSEVEN™ online shop. A venture brought about by a love for the art in the design process, and a desire to manifest deep-held ideals in a tangible way. Collections consist of luxury modern essentials for the contemporary Creative — Essential mens & womenswear pieces made sustainably to order in East London.
