The Line Up

Territory - Building a new world: Blade Runner 2049


David Sheldon Hicks, co-founder and executive creative director of Territory will share the studio’s experience of bringing director Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner vision to life on screen. A unique creative journey, this insightful talk will explore how 2049 was conceived and built, the creative ideas and practical conversations that drove physical set design, technology concepts and interfaces, and how this work supports and enriches story and action.

With a background in graphic design, David’s career began in digital media and the fast-moving world of music videos, before his passion for the craft and creative of motion graphics led him to film, games and commercial campaigns.

Co-founding Territory Studio in 2010, David’s love of storytelling, design and technology quickly established a reputation for beautifully crafted, design-led graphic narratives across genres and media. Today, David’s multidisciplinary team thrives on future vision challenges, attracting diverse briefs across entertainment, technology, arts & culture and brand content.

Film credits include Ready Player One, Blade Runner 2049, Ghost in the Shell, The Martian, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ex_Machina and Prometheus.

Fandangoe Kid


The Fandangoe Kid is a print artist who makes large scale narrative driven pieces for all to access.

She has created work for a broad range of purposes from the Turner Prize in Hull 2017, Bristol University, Brooklyn Industries to WAH Nails, always seeking to uphold integrity in her message.

Having lost almost all of her family in NYC in 2011, Annie's work seeks to create a platform for open conversation about typically taboo subject matters.

She has worked with young people in Hackney for over 10 years, setting up an Art and Design Department in a brand new school in the neighbourhood, her remit being to encourage young people from all backgrounds to know themselves better through their creative practice.

Laurie Rowan
