Moving between creative fields

Fluidity within creative fields is now greater than ever, even though  communications pros have moved in and out of each other’s fields for decades now,  For example, today’s marketers often work as content writers and comms people are expected to understand data and the key elements of marketing.

In addition, so many people who once worked 8 to 5 in communications, PR, or are becoming self-employed. Some are solopreneurs, a few set up successful agencies, while others work collaboratively on a project-to-project basis. Whatever the setup, creative people are suddenly running start-up businesses and are hungry for guidance and relevant information.

Drawing from amazing creative individuals

We aim to uncover how successful creatives approach their work and reveal the influences that shape their thinking. We look at emerging trends and explore excellence and best practices. Sometimes, we’ll interview people about the less obvious influences that shape creative work. We speak to sought-after experts who are thought leaders in their fields.

We want to inspire you so that you can move your initiatives forward. And we want you to find something here that motivates or inspirs, starts a great conversation, or gets you thinking about what’s possible and what you can achieve.
