Psst…hey you! Yes, you! Quick, we need your help! Here’s the deal: We’ve got a situation on our hands. Every year, there’s a worldwide creative competition where talented creatives face off in a battle of skills and, most importantly, the coveted title of Grand Master of the Arts. We were all set to enter, but our best artist is suddenly nowhere to be found! That’s why we’ve recruited you: a team of the best and brightest creatives that we could assemble. Will you leap all five creative hurdles and come away with the win as the Grand Masters of the Arts? We’re rooting for you!
