Creative Futures Bursary Project: Roel Wouters

For almost 20 years, Creative Review has been encouraging the next generation of talented creatives through our annual Creative Futures scheme in which we celebrate the promise of a selection of emerging talent in visual communications.
This year’s crop of Futures were selected by the CR editorial team – our only criteria were to find indiv­iduals or teams who we feel have an extremely bright future ahead of them and who are indicative of the future direction of the industry.
Just before Christmas, each of our selected Futures gave a talk at one of three Creative Futures events. We invited everyone coming along to the talks to bring a piece of work with them – an image, some text, even a piece of music. We then asked each of our Futures to produce a new piece of work responding to the experience of being selected for the scheme, giving their talk and to the work brought along. These projects were funded by a bursary provided to each Future by CR and PlayStation. Over the next week or so we will be posting up the resulting pieces of work plus documentaries on each Future, made for us by Fallon…

The Winkreative team responsible for the changes to the Italian interiors title – creative director Tyler Brûlé, art director Kuchar Swara and photo director Stephen Ledger-Lomas – talked us through the process behind its relaunch.

The State of Art Direction

Is this the best art direction in the world? DDB Johannesburg wins the Press Grand Prix at Cannes 08 with its campaign for Energizer
In the April issue of CR, art director Paul Cohen lamented the state of art direction within advertising. According to Cohen, the profession is in decline, under-appreciated by clients as well as agencies, with a basic understanding of art direction’s function in advertising seemingly lost. Cohen’s article got us thinking…
