This year our founder Claire was thrilled to be asked to judge at the Cannes Lions 2014 Festival of Creativity. As one of only 21 judges handpicked globally for the PR Jury this meant that Claire got to spend 6 days in a judging room looking at some of the best creative work in the world. The wider festival celebrates the best work in the marketing world including film (advertising), digital, direct marketing and innovation. So we thought that would be a good place to start if you fancy some inspiration and rummage around what won at Cannes this year. Here’s a link to the winners for the PR metal.
We also love TED for their constant supply of thought-provoking material in every subject imaginable. Here’s a selection of our favourite creativity talks – kickstart your creativity.
