Despite the name, and the debut single ''Quicksand'' released on a French label Kitsune, La Roux is not French, in fact, they are from South London.

This man has been in the game for over 20 years and is still going strong. His styles have evolved and each new direction he takes justifies why he is one of the best graffiti artists the UK has to offer. "Back in 87-88, we were living in Essex, so we’d come to London and it wasn’t a very nice place; people got robbed and that was just part of the whole graffiti thing at the time. On top of that, I’ve been stabbed and I’ve been to prison, all because of graffiti and 24 years later, I still continue to paint."

What If is technically the largest independent consultancy around innovation. Our independence is actually very important to us because it has allowed us to really explore our character and do things differently all along. Basically we are in four locations around the world, born in England about 15 years ago and we’re now also in New York, Manchester and Shanghai. I think we stretch around 20 business hours a day now, as and when needed.
