This weekend is the last chance to see our Talentspotting project, in association with Creative Translation, which sees work by 20 UK creative graduates placed on JCDecaux digital screens at some of the UK’s busiest shopping centres, train stations and ad sites…

Since August 3, over 1000 digital screens across the UK have displayed work by illustration, animation, photography and design graduates chosen by CR’s editorial team. Images have appeared at Manchester’s Trafford Centre, London’s St Pancras, Victoria and Waterloo stations and the Cromwell Road ‘digital gateway’.

The initiative is part of JCDecaux’s Beframeus series of editorial projects. Each screen is captioned with the featured graduate’s name and university, and you can see a full list of graduates, plus details of where to find their work, at creativereview.co.uk/talentspotting

The project has been featured in several local and national newspapers since it was launched: Jamie Rector’s Shakespeare plays in emojis have appeared on the Daily Mail, the Metro and the Manchester Evening News; Ana Jaks’ illustrations on Isle of Man Today, and Oliver Tubb’s in The Portsmouth News, while Andrew O’Dell’s shots of the Barbican were discussed on BBC Northampton Radio.

We’ve also had a great response on Twitter – if you if you spot any while you’re out and about this weekend, post on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #CRtalentspotting

With the project coming to a close, we’d like to thank JCDecaux for the opportunity to showcase graduates’ work and our partner Creative Translation. To celebrate the project’s success, Creative Translation is running a competition to win an Olympus OM-D Mark II camera, which you can win by answering a quick question and snapping a screen near you. See creativetranslation.com for details on how to enter.
