Design students compete for a six-month placement at Philippe Starck's design agency. It is the grand final. Only Ilsa and Mike remain from the original 12 students - and soon one of them will win the coveted opportunity of a work placement alongside Starck at his Paris design agency. Mike and Ilsa have two weeks to finalise their products and come up with a poster advertising campaign for them. After her debacle with the branding challenge in the previous week, Ilsa struggles at the ad agency and is soon hamstrung by her old problem of over-complicating everything. Mike, meanwhile, is still smarting from Starck's criticisms of his work - that it lacked soul and spirit. As the clock ticks towards D-Day the pair work more and more frenetically, reducing Ilsa to tears and Mike to exhaustion. But when it is finally time to present their finished prototypes to Starck, the biggest surprises are yet to come.
