German-born and London-based Photographer, Art Director and Digital Media Consultant, Simon Schmidt, crafts stories that coherently explore the concept of movement. Simon places human form at the heart of his creative, drawing on his former background as a dancer. His work is driven by inherent curiosity and appreciation for the relationship between human and object. Always seeking to collaborate with brands in an unconventional way, Simon’s ultimate ambition is to revolutionise how the younger generation is consuming and communicating on the internet.

Gab Gibek (they/them) is a Polish-born 21-year-old artist and photographer. They have been working freelance for the last 5 years, working on projects such as Lifespring Stories, co-running online magazine INZAGHII and many more projects.
