Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund was a scheme that offered five young artists £30,000 each to fund their work for a full year.

The fund was designed to develop their creative practice and help take their work to the next level. They were paired with a mentor from Sky to help them develop their networks, skills and knowledge in the arts and the commercial sector, and supported them through Sky’s platforms such as on screen.

The brief was to design a 5 second title sequence that emulated the simple spark of an idea, in keeping with the initial shard branding.
