Two Times Elliott: For over 13 years, Two Times Elliott has striven to push the boundaries of what's possible in design. To deliver commercially effective work that is outside the expected - considered, refined and above trends. As a partner in change, Two Times Elliott collaborate with ambitious people and brands. Designing ideas and worlds that reframe contexts, shift perspectives and spark progress. The studios approach is grounded in a core set of principles that guide their actions, from how they prioritise curiosity, experimentation and learning to how they never assume to know the answer. At the heart of this is true collaboration and their belief that the journey to great work lies in the power of it. They will be running a small workshop that will focus on creative storytelling, referencing visual imagery, and completing a final outcome.

XK Studio: Latest additions to XKR, ongoing series for visual research and experimentation, will be showcased alongside selected new commissions and behind the scenes material. A research-led 3D design and moving image practice, XK studio uses procedural and sculptural techniques to explore visual narratives in motion. Taking cues from the physicalities of both the natural and synthetic world, they create work that is hyper-real and hallucinatory, exploring how current technologies can facilitate storytelling in a digital realm. Collaborators and clients range from cultural institutions such as London Symphony Orchestra to leading brands such as Apple, Nike, Mugler, Hermes and Microsoft.
