Phosphor Art's Mardo El-Noor had a busy 2016, working on lots of exciting motion projects for advertising campaigns and music videos.

Phosphor Art are pleased to introduce you to their latest artist, Lee Ford. Lee’s unique approach to graphic image making has a strong connection to traditional print based methods and has evolved through many years of experimentation. These traditionally printed elements are combined with digital and analogue graphic processes that include found ephemera, drawing and photography all described using a playful, visceral visual language that explores both concept and aesthetic in equal measure.
Phosphor Art's Laura Redburn was approached by Wired Magazine to create this mini collage to accompany an article comparing Hollywood film Passengers with British novelist Katie Khan's debut Hold Back the Stars. Laura originally created a piece with her stash of vintage collage materials, but her and the team at Wired decided it needed a more futuristic sci-fi look, resulting in this stunning digital collage of film stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
