The Creative Industries Council released their 2020 list of 100 Ones to Watch in Createch which includes Culture Diary members 59 Productions and Marshmallow Laser Feast.
The ‘Ones to Watch’ 100 identifies UK-based Createch pioneers based across the UK working in creative disciplines from visual effects to fashion, design to digital theatre, animation to advertising.
The names have been chosen because they are innovating to develop new experiences, services, products, and social benefits using advanced uses of mixed reality, artificial intelligence, and smart data combined with human creativity. The companies have been nominated by bodies including Digital Catapult, UKRI, London & Partners and the Department for International Trade, that see the potential of these businesses to build on the UK’s international reputation in both creative and technology areas.
The creative and digital industries combined contributed more than £250bn to the UK economy in 2018 and were one of the fastest-growing sources of value and job creation for the country.
