Hide&Seek is a game design studio based in London and New York. Through a compelling combination of design, technology and cultural partnership, their work re-imagines public space as a place to play and spans multiple platforms: console, smartphone, browser, TV and street. The studio is founded on the belief that play is essential to our health, minds and relationships, and will play an increasing role in the civic culture of the 21st century. They create new games and experiences, curate and support the work of artists and designers through the Sandpit series, design and consult with global brands, and speak at events around the world. The Nature Games Weekend is part of Hide&Seek’s own series of social games events over the summer supported by Arts Council England.

Their work has been recognised by D&D, Creative Review, BAFTA, The One Show, Living Labs Global Awards and Guardian MEGAS. Founder & Director Alex Fleetwood won British Council Performing Arts Entrepreneur of the Year, and Development Director Margaret Robertson was recently named one of the UK’s top games designers by Develop Magazine.
