“Playfulness is at the heart of what we do at Aardman and I look forward to sharing how we embrace that in our creative processes,” said Crossingham.
“Although we are a tiny player in the toy arena, we feel it is our duty to support an event which encourages creativity and innovation,” said Entertoyment director Josep Pastor.
“Spin Master is excited to be partnering with Mojo Nation this year and looking forward to meeting with the UK’s most talented top designers and toy inventors at the 2018 Pitch event,” said David Winter, inventor relations at Spin Master.
“Inventors are the lifeblood of our industry and I think that the Mojo Pitch event is a fantastic opportunity for all involved,” said Daniel King, general manager UK at Cartamundi.
“What Mojo Nation is doing throughout the year is fantastic and we expect this to be the crowning event of the year,” said Seven Towns’ Steve Perrin.
Taking place at the Design Museum in London on Wednesday, September 12th, the event aims to encourage more product design students to take up careers in the toy and game space.
“Vivid are delighted to get behind this programme – it will no doubt be a fantastic creative forum,” said James Wing, R&D manager at Vivid.
