Stax of ideas, Stax of effort

Stax Creations, alumni of our 2013-14 ILF Venture start up programme, go from strength to strength.

Most recently, the young team, which specialises in the design and build of large installations for retail, office and event spaces, achieved a major profile boost with their work for the Birmingham wing of TED the global ideas phenomenon.

The theme at TEDxBrum event on November 8 was DIY and Stax whose own company ethos of 'do it yourself' dovetails so well with the TED philosophy, quickly created a distinctly visual stage set.

"We really wanted to do it," adds Nathaniel Hanna, Stax Creations managing director. "I'm a fan of the brand and it was a great opportunity to showcase what we can do."

The TEDxBrum project followed a busy summer and autumn for Stax, which included major builds for two festivals.

Sara Page - making a splash.
