We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity by Lucas Film and Disney to design and create our own customised BB-8 for the "BB-8 GREAT Design Project" in support of Star Wars: Force for Change an initiative that inspires people to make a positive impact on the world.
The challenge was to customise everyone’s favourite new droid, BB-8, along the theme of all that is GREAT about Britain. We had so much fun "irregularising" our droid and decided on an "English Country Garden" theme (of course with a bit of irregular sparkle!)
Our creation will be put on display with a number of other entries designed by Star Wars talent, British celebrities, fans and artists worldwide including stars of The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega at the 46 Mortimer Street Gallery from Tuesday 19th – Thursday 21st April.
The initiative will raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity with a number of the designed BB-8s being auctioned off for charity via an online auction from 18th April 7pm to 20th April at 11.59pm. 100% of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, on behalf of Force For Change.
