► Someone who created the title sequences for Iron Man 1, 2, 3, Oblivion, Rock'n'Rolla, Sherlock Holmes and more.
► Or the graphic designer behind The Grand Budapest Hotel.

► Have you ever thought you could invent something? You would seriously be interested in the inventor of Sugru!
► The artist commissioned by MTV, Lewis Hamilton and Oxfam,
