How We're Building a Purpose Led Business

In 2019, we made the decision to donate 1% of all Comrade Kiev’s revenue to causes that align to our values. Every year, we’re increasing that percentage by 1% until 10% of Comrade Kiev’s revenue goes towards supporting impactful causes in 2029.  

As a small business, every dollar counts, but our moral obligation cannot wait. 2020 was a particularly challenging year for the world. We donated closer to 5% of revenue, a total of £965.34, to causes including the BLM movement, humanitarian aid after the Beirut explosion, offsetting our carbon footprint, and fighting for free speech and human rights all around the world. Here’s a link to those receipts

In 2021, we’ll increase that amount to 3% of all revenue. Thank you all for your support. You can read more about how we’re doing our part here

We’ve Integrated with Klarna to Make Art More Accessible

Soviet posters were often printed by their thousands. But most were thrown away when the movie or movement was over. The rest usually ended off in attics or basements where water, termites and time slowly destroyed them. The posters that survive today, in good condition, are increasingly rare.


How We’re Building a Carbon Neutral Business

The world needs to move fast to make a difference in the fight against climate change. We all leave an impact on the planet, so we can all play a part in preventing climate change. Comrade Kiev is built around the principle of celebrating objects already in existence rather than creating something new.


The Ethics Behind Art: Our Commitment to Freedom and Equality

Comrade Kiev exists to shine light on the unfamiliar, and to share stories that illustrate the beauty of Soviet design. But sometimes shining a light on the unfamiliar means we must confront the unacceptable. In some countries we’ve visited, the authorities regularly crack down on the media and harass peaceful protesters.


My Journey from Fintech to Fine Art

Before studying business, I studied art. For the last 8 years, I’ve put art to one side in the pursuit of financial stability. It wasn’t something I had growing up, but I knew I wanted to return my focus to art once I had it. My return to art began in 2018. It started with a single poster from a flea market.
