The Talent Business' Cream Wins Twice at Creative Circle
Cream, the global showcase of the twenty hottest young creative teams and individuals as chosen by the industry's most influential figureheads, won two awards at Creative Circle last Thursday. Now in its 17th year, the initiative has identified some of the biggest names in creative talent at the earliest stages of their career and is supported by The Talent Business, the world leader in executive search for creative businesses.
The invites for last year’s Rough Diamond private view were designed by Grey, shot by Rankin and won a Bronze award for best Photography Campaign and a Bronze for best Flyer/ Ticket/ Card Campaign at Creative Circle. The photography for the invite is featured on the Cream website.
“It’s an amazing achievement to get our Cream work recognised by London’s creative community, Grey and Rankin were a perfect creative partnership. Finding brilliant talent - the lifeblood of agencies - continues to be one of the toughest challenges the industry faces. Our global reach means that we are able to offer this unique platform that connects the industry’s top ECDs with the most promising young creative talent from all over the world, who in turn we hope will be the future leaders of their agencies. We are very excited to be planning the event for 2016,” says Tanya Livesey, Global Head of Creative Talent at The Talent Business.
Recent winners of Cream have found that the competition has led to immediate offers of placements and full-time jobs, from agencies such as adam&eveDDB, Mother, Droga5 London and Wieden + Kennedy.
Judging takes place throughout July and August, when a dedicated jury made up of senior creative directors from the world’s leading advertising agencies and creative businesses select the most pioneering work. Twenty winners will be chosen for 2016, they will showcase their work at a Private View to be held at Ogilvy & Mather London later this year. Deadline for entries is 18th July to 22nd July 2016.
