Production Design and Creative Direction firm, Rockart Design has celebrated its birthday after six successful years in operation. Founded by Nicoline Refsing, previously of Stufish, the company’s impressive client list includes One Direction, Duke of Edinburgh and Eurovision Song Contest.
Refsing’s foundations as part of Stufish saw her work with production design icon Mark Fisher on the world’s biggest shows, including The Rolling Stones, U2, Take That, The Brits, Cirque Du Soliel and the Pink Fun House tour.
In 2014, Rockart was responsible for the creative direction and content design for all 37 participating nations for the Eurovision Song Contest, and has continued to develop artists every year since. Last year, Rockart collaborated with Australian contestant Dami Im, whose striking performance saw her finish in second place in the competition.
In 2015 the firm was challenged to win over new streaming audiences for The Riot Games – League of Legends. A completely new trend in the world of major events – E-Sports hosts arena spectaculars for online gaming. Rockart provided the design for four international arena shows.
Going from strength to strength, the company added further strings to its bow. Recently providing a full range service including creative direction, screen content, production and lighting design for the Duke of Edinburgh Award’s 60th Anniversary event. Another of her recent roles as Show Director involved working with Jack Morton on a high profile product launch.
With more Eurovision performances in the pipeline, and a recently completed production design for the SWATCH Your Move product launch, founder Refsing reflected: “We are really happy with this achievement and thrilled with the new opportunities that have come our way. Our passion for creating outstanding performances means we enjoy every project we work on and have been able to deliver on each new challenge that has come our way. We’re really excited for the year ahead.”
