Ruth has 19 years of experience in creating decorative and immersive experiences and events. She is a logistics and ideas-focused creative with a drive for perfection. Working as an art director, set designer and event producer, Ruth has experience in theatre, film, retail and the events industry.
In the commercial sector, she has art directed and designed installations for Burning Man, Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Glastonbury Festival, Beat Hotel and Noisily Festival. This year, Ruth has collaborated with Ritual Ibiza for all their private parties with the need for decoration production. Within the private event space, she has designed and art-directed stages, installations and whole events for some of the world’s most exclusive clients.
From a very early age, Ruth knew she was going to work in the creative arts. Her Grandfather, Peter Firmin, the creator of the Bagpuss and Clanger worlds, was a true mentor, teaching her woodwork and other making skills from a young age. Without a doubt this helped forge her path, creating her own worlds in the future.
Ruth began decorating parties as a young adult, working with London-based decoration artists to build immersive installations for UK’s rave scene and European festivals.
Studying at UAL BA (Hons) Technical Arts and Special effects, Ruth learnt a wide spectrum of processes for set building, prop and puppet making. After graduating, she worked making giant puppets and props for theatre and TV before focusing on the event industry as her main workplace.
Ruth now combines her fabricating knowledge, event production experience and Computer Aided Design skills to produce spectacular high-end events in Ibiza for clients who are looking to throw mind-bending party experiences on the white isle. She collaborates with talent from Ibiza, Europe and around the world to create unforgettable experiences.
In 2022, Ruth designed the stage set for Ibiza Rocks, art directed Beat Hotel Ibiza, celebrated her 6th-year art directing Noisily Festival and has worked helping produce the most flamboyant private events in Ibiza this year.
