Liver­pudlian Martin Ken­wright set up his first com­pany, Dig­i­tal Im­age De­sign (DID), in his twen­ties. After carv­ing out a niche in flight sim­u­la­tors and li­cens­ing his tech to NATO train­ing pro­grammes, he sold the stu­dio to In­fo­grames be­fore his 30th birth­day. Next, he set up Evo­lu­tion with Ian Hether­ing­ton. That stu­dio de­vel­oped five WRC games be­fore cre­at­ing Mo­torS­torm for PS3’s launch. Mo­torS­torm’s suc­cess led to an ac­qui­si­tion by Sony and Ken­wright signed a con­tract with a non­com­pete clause that kept him out of the in­dus­try for five years. He founded Star­ship in May 2013, and his cur­rent team in­cludes vet­er­ans from Stu­dio Liver­pool, Bizarre Cre­ations, DID and Evo­lu­tion.
