TR Bennett is a multidisciplinary creative working in London. Their approach to projects is to start by finding a core concept, researching it, then finding an appropriately engaging way to express it.
This way of working developed over the course of their education. Studying a foundation in art & design at Falmouth University (2011 — 2012) allowed them to jump between practices. This lead them to study a BA in graphic design at Kingston University (2012 — 2016), which offered a highly conceptual approach to design. This gave them space to apply design theory to an array of formats, such as film, music and installation pieces. TR also studied for a term at Pratt Institute, New York (2013), which gave them a formal introduction to creative coding.
After graduating in 2016, TR worked full-time as a designer at Wolff Olins for two years. During this time, they worked on brand identities and strategic redirection projects for clients such as Google, Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation.
Since leaving in 2018, TR has worked as a freelance designer for Mirum, Pentagram and Studio Moross, specialising in 3D and motion design.
They have also received awards and features from Pictoplasma, Frame Film Festival, Labocine Festival and the Royal Society of Art.
In their free time, TR contines to experiment with different approaches and media. They are currently working on developing their woodcut printing practice, creating a short animated film for Tiny Terrors and singing with London Sea Shanty Collective.
