During this time, he worked on many large scale projects, including the Millennium Dome Central Show, Athens Summer Olympics 2004, Turin Winter Olympics 2006, Robbie Williams ‘Weekends of Mass Distraction’ & ‘Close Encounters’, Rolling Stones ‘Bridges to Babylon’, ‘Licks’ & ‘A Bigger Bang’, Genesis ‘Turn it on Again’, AC/DC ‘Black Ice, ‘U2 ‘360’ and Muse ‘The Resistance’ tours, to name but a few.
Kevin now offers freelance CAD services to the live events industry, recently working with clients including Tait Technologies on the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 Ceremonies, Wonder Works, and Stufish Productions Ltd. His cat, Mungo, would also consult with our team, if it wasn’t for all the dogs.

Hannah Knox was born in London and completed her MA in painting at the Royal College of Art in 2007. She lives and works in London. Knox’s practice takes painting as its focus. Her most recent works are made from a selection of fabrics and cloths, ostensibly unpainted they are stained, poured, dipped, printed or sprayed. Shape-shifting they fall from the ceiling, hang out on the floor or gather themselves up to make a stand-in body in the room; actively embracing the world beyond the wall. Alongside her work as a practising artist, Knox is a senior lecturer at Oxford Brookes University for their BA in Painting, and provides creative consultancy to Lloyd Live Design on a variety of projects.
