Matthieu Bessudo is a French illustrator living in London. His style is a mix of influences such as Fleischer Studios' old cartoons he actualizes by using contemporary shapes, symbols and types. McBess drawings often represent himself at the center of a surrealist world filled with food and musical references, such as amps, guitars and records. He's also a musician in the band "The Dead Pirates" and was selected by Creative Review to create a McBess pack for their curated Granimator™ collection.
Kate Moross is a 24 year old London based creative. She designs and art directs extensively within the music industry, runs ISO & Isomorph Records and has a fascination with three sided shapes, illegible typography, and freeform lettering.
Her many achievements include designing the logo representing Samsung’s London 2012 Olympics partnership, a nationwide billboard campaign for Cadburys and a signature clothing range for Topshop. She has been profiled in Grafik Magazine, Dazed & Confused, Vice magazine and Creative Review.
Kate created the 'Multicity' pack for ustwo™'s acclaimed Granimator™ iPad app, which is the most downloaded Granimator™ pack with over 6500 downloads.
Ian Stevenson's influences of the everyday strangeness of people and the world around him shines through in his odd world of distorted characters. Drawing on walls, floors, rubbish and anything else he can find, his works bright cheery colours draw you into a sometimes dark world...
With numerous exhibitions, animations and books to his name, his work ultimately makes you laugh with his combination of words and imagery.
Clients include Tate Modern, ICA, Microsoft, Perrier, Polydor, The Conran Shop, MTV, Warp Films, Nintendo and Paul Smith. As well as a featured guest at Berlins Pictoplasma Conference, Current TV also featured a documentary on Ian and his work.
and of course, last but not least…
mills™ > ustwo's CHIEF WONKA™ literally lives and breathes mobile as the self proclaimed King of Succailure™. He has launched creative apps which have sold globally in their hundreds. He openly talks nonsense and a few people listen. If you’re interested in the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, follow @millsustwo. If not, follow him anyway.
More details to be announced in the coming weeks
Lots of love
Ian & Nick

Our sponsors Source would like you all to remember to 'Check-in' on Foursquare on the night via the 'Glug @Cargo' check in. We will be trying to achieve a 'Swarm' and looking to unlock the Swarm badge or maybe the Super Swarm Badge! We will then pick someone at random to win £250 iTunes vouchers to buy as many apps as possible. With Ustwo hosting the action we are sure some of their ideas may tempt you to explore some new apps available...
