- What:Evening events
- Where:Lunch Room
CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS EVENT: Find out how the role of the creative director has evolved through the digital revolution and about the importance of creativity in the digital age.
The digital realm has become an essential medium that provides a seductively accessible location for creativity. However, its ubiquity raises important questions about our contemporary obsession with virtual engagement, does it mark the death of creativity or its renaissance? Is creativity more important than ever? Does the medium dominate the message, making creativity an optional extra? Or should we just embrace the digital realm as a fantastic opportunity that allows us to engage our customers more intimately and meaningfully than ever before?It is becoming increasingly difficult to identify anyone who is not ‘doing’ digital.
