They’ve been creating exciting pieces of work all over the country for a few years now, previous clients include Sky Larkin, Leeds Light Night and Tokyo Police Club.

 

Xiiixiii is a multi-disciplinary designer originally from Bradford and now based on the South Coast of England. He’s  spent the last couple of years directing and animating music videos for the likes of Blue Roses (Laura Groves); animating stereoscopic films for German telecommunications companies and coding lots and lots of websites. He really doesn’t like coding websites and much prefers to spend his time experimenting with computer vision, interaction and generative techniques.

Dance To The Radio
will be channelling the talents of film and video maker Chris Paul Daniels. Chris is a graduate of The Royal College Of Art and winner of the prestigious RCA Deutsche Bank Award in Art 2010 and will be showing a selection of his works.

 

Poster Roast was set up in 2007 by husband and wife Chris White and Alex Curtis with the intention of helping develop and promote Poster Artists within the UK. During each Poster Roast there is a curated exhibition of some of the most influential poster artists in the UK, there is also live screen printing throughout showing the process, and the option of leaving with your own freshly printed poster.
