The Coronet Cinema Hotel 

Personal Bio: I believe that creativity and inspiration originate from the mixture of polar thoughts and ideas.

Design as a tool of communication plays a crucial part in delivering these artistic concepts to the rest of the world.

As a designer I am constantly feeling an urge to be delivering a profound message to an audience through creation of unique spaces and objects in response to its contemporary needs.

I have the technical capability and courage to make an innovative and sensitive contribution to the world of your practice, due to my endless curiosity, energy and awareness of the global value of design.

Personal Bio: 

I am a curious creative with a raw passion for design, illustration, branding and campaign creation.

BA (Hons) Fashion 
@arunrfashion 

I am a graduate of the fashion design BA at Ravensbourne University London. During my three years on the BA course, I have developed a key aesthetic that is inspired by the female form and the beauty of the natural silhouette.

During my final collection I pushed these elements alongside the inspirational imagery of Helmut Newton’s photography to create a lineup that showcased female sexuality in a glamorous and contemporary way.

As a very passionate illustrator I also strive to express the themes within my work throughout my illustrations which was also a significant aspect of creating my final collection. I am excited to see the industry adapt to the changing climates in all aspects and see how I as a designer can continue growing.

BA (Hons) Editing & Post Production

@watsongrading

Personal Bio: David Watson is an aspiring Colourist. He became fascinated by the video production at the young age of 7 when he began creating stop-motion animations using toys in his room.

Since those childhood days David has become specialised in Post Production and has freelanced on many projects for various companies. This has included anything from Wedding Compilations to GoPro advertising campaigns as well as creating his own videos which have been recognised on a global scale with one of them going viral and reaching over 30 million views.

He began studying at Ravensbourne University in 2017 and in his second year started working as a runner at Envy Post Production. As David progressed, he became more and more fascinated with Colour Grading.

His keen interest in psychology has helped inform many of his colour grades, with his recent dissertation on the subconscious impact of colour on visual narratives. In Summer 2020, he joined Ignition Creative as a Junior Assistant Finishing Editor.

BA (Hons) Digital Film Production
@scarlethopespinks

Personal Bio: Scarlet is an enthusiastic and expressive creative director, specialising in music videos as a result of her childhood around music. Her work is ultimately motivated by people and their relationships with music and movement.

Through a cultivated passionate interest in music, specifically alternative folk and ‘emotional dance music’, she seeks to explore the role of lyricism in the artist’s identity and one’s expression through movement. She is currently in the pre-production stages of music videos and advocates for creating space for woman in film.

In the future she hopes to explore the cultural impact of queer identity on younger generations and the importance of representation and education on queer mental health. 

She has been involved in production for companies such as Partizan and the CBBC, running for launch events for Stink Films and ballets at Royal Albert Hall.
