Creative Social Presents: F**k That’s Good

We sent @jensties down to last weeks last ever CS Presents, here's the DL! 

There’s plenty of crap out there. But there’s also plenty of creative goodness. And it’s the latter that is the focus of Creative Social’s ‘F**k That’s Good’ evening.

The premise is simple. Ask six people, who are already killing it in their respective fields, what blows their creative mind. And since it was Creative Social’s last CS Presents event, each speaker was asked to name their expected trend for 2018.

If you didn’t make the event - we got your back. Here’s a digest of what went down.

Cut, Paste & Manipulate – an evening with James Dawe

Peeps, we've joined forces with Jelly again for an evening of inspo, with the illustrator, James Dawe.

His style of work involves photo-collages and digital manipulation, in which distorted portraits are a recurring theme. His work is ever unexpected, often abstract and also dramatic. James caught keen eyes for his work on a series of alternate covers for Bloomberg Business week. Some of his other clients include Red Bull, Warp Records, GQ Style, Sky Sports and Network Rail. James graduated from Brighton University in 2006 and has been working as a freelance illustrator in London ever since.

This intimate evening is being held at Jelly's offices and they'll be liquid refreshments too.

Ticket price is refundable on attendance. And we apologise, but due to the nature of the building, access is limited via stairs only.

Let’s talk about Gender Equality in The North with Northern Power Women

We can all agree this is something we can’t get away from, fudge the facts or deny isn’t happening. Especially since the BBC you-know-what. However, let’s look for a moment at the positives, let’s look at what we’re actually doing to change the state of play.

As well as contributing here at the Young Creative Council I actively play a part as Creative Director and Ambassador for Northern Power Women. This is a collective that’s actively trying to accelerate the gender diversity divide in the North of England. Through engagement, networking, events and awards they look to showcase strong and influential role-models. People who are not only kicking ass but helping or sponsoring, mentoring and/or supporting other women to step into their field.

The Art in Storytelling

We all love to tell a story, We all love to hear a story – and hey, we’re in the business of storytelling (who isn’t these days?). But since ‘the story’ has superseded ‘the big idea’ and ‘the journey’ how do we tell the difference between a good story and a bad story and more importantly how do we sell it?

Well fortunately for us, last night we trekked on down to the SheSays event ‘Finding Great Stories’ at Barker on Wall Street, New York. I guess you could say this is a story, to explain that story, about how to sell the best story.

Are you sitting comfortably?
