A new Creative Review site, not THE new Creative Review site

Welcome to the new home for CR online. It’s a little basic, and it won’t be forever, but for now it’s where we live. Think of it as the rented flat you move into while the builders are creating your dream home

If you are a regular CR reader, you will know that we had some problems with our website last week. Unfortunately it has not proved possible to bring the old site back in a way that would be both reliable and secure for our users.

Over the summer, we have been hard at work building a brand new Creative Review site that we are very excited about. Unfortunately, that is still some way off going live.

So in the meantime, we have brought back the part of the old site that has always been the most popular with readers – the CR Blog. Yes, it’s a little basic, but it does a job and we will use it to continue to bring you the stories and features that we know you love.

You’ll find all our stories from the past two weeks here. We will be bringing back our complete Blog archive over the coming few days. Commenting will also be reinstated as will comments on our old posts. The Feed section presents a bigger problem and will take longer to resolve. If you are looking to enter the CR Photography Annual, please follow the link at the top of the page.

We’d like to thank all our readers for the amazing messages of sympathy and support we have received. We really do have a fantastic community. Apologies for the inconvenience the last few days have caused.

We hope you continue to enjoy the Blog – just wait until you see the new home we’re building!
