Born and raised in London, Anna Ginsburg studied at Camberwell College of Arts and later Edinburgh College of Art. Anna specialises in combining different techniques and approaches, working across traditional hand-drawn 2D, stop-motion, digital imagery and live-action. Anna's first of many music videos for Bombay Bicycle Club, 'How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep?' won a BAFTA at the New Talent Awards. Since then Anna has worked for a variety of international and UK clients including the BBC, Universal, Sony, Channel 4 and John Lewis. Anna continues to challenge herself artistically and technically, from creating her interactive ‘Spin the Aubergine’ site to experimenting with animated documentary in ‘Material World’.
Rob Flowers is an illustrator with a distinctively bold style defined by crayon-bright palettes, playful forms and eccentric characters. Stationed in his ‘Flowers Towers’ studio, Rob is a keen collector of kitsch ephemera and historical miscellany, counting 80s gross-out toys, 70s cartoons and early McDonald’s advertising memorabilia amongst his treasury. With a leaning towards the humorously grotesque, his work draws on his fondness for mythology, combining whimsical imagery with symbolism and folkloric elements.
