WE ARE A MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGN & FABRICATION STUDIO CREATING AWARD-WINNING SPACES, SHOWS & STRUCTURES.

In our studio workshop in Kent, UK, we design, create and build ground-breaking concepts, shows, stages & light installations for festivals, brands, artists & places.

We love to collaborate with other people to make meaningful things that build unity & empathy, creating a lasting impact on those who experience them.

Lucid Creates is the partnership between designers and engineers Chris Carr & Helen Swan.

It is built upon the ethos that our designs should enable community, sustainability and inclusivity by pushing the boundaries of design, technology & engineering.

We create spaces that enable people to form connections. We use our voice to raise awareness of climate issues, particularly within the event industry. We don’t make single-use installations or sets and have developed an entirely new system of set construction that enables them to be reusable on a long term basis, even in new designs. We also champion the training and employment of women in traditionally male roles in the set construction industry.

Our expertise in the fields of event design and community has enabled us to work with some of the world’s leading artists, festivals and brands, such as Parklife, Live Nation, Glastonbury, Sub Focus, Field Day, Google, Ikea, Sonos, Adidas, Pepsi & Amex.

WHO ARE WE

We bring together people we love to create spaces and shows that bring others together.

WHAT WE DO

We design, we create, we build

DESIGN

We develop creative concepts hand in hand with our clients, finding inventive design, fabrication, technical and production solutions. We are experts in integrating LED and video into our designs.

Our clients receive design concepts with full 3D renders, sketches, mood boards, and examples of materials.

Once the design has been finalised, we undertake full technical drawings, costs and a feasibility study.

CREATE

Following sign off, our workshop team begins fabrication and construction.

Our lighting and video teams design, make and programme any custom video and LED content to be built into the show.

We work closely with our lighting, video, SFX, staging, technical and logistical partners to ensure that all elements have been considered at this stage.


BUILD

In collaboration with the festival and artists’ production and management teams, we fully install the stage and show according to the nature of the design and client needs.

This includes project management, coordination, logistics, transport, and travel for crew and staff to execute the onsite installation of all environmental, structural, and technological elements.


We are addressing the negative impact of disposable design and festival infrastructure

Sustainability is at the core of our designs. We are addressing the negative impact of disposable design and festival infrastructure, by helping develop a new initiative to establish a benchmark of behaviour and action across the set building industry. This will allow realistic and comparable measurements of sustainability, factoring in transport, manufacture, energy use, materials, waste disposal, lifespan etc.

We will not build disposable, single-use structures and have developed a system of modular steel frames and brackets that can be used for years. This strong, system allows us to build reusable structures with minimal environmental impact.

The materials with which we build are sustainably sourced. We avoid single use materials wherever possible.
