Creative Stories From Cannes

Can you get enough of Cannes? If you can't we've got a jolly good treat lined up for you to keep Cannes going for another few weeks at least.

Creative Social are hosting their annual Cannes round-up and as per usual it's unmissable. It's not till the 18th July so there's still time to get tickets. RIGHT HERE.

The lovely lot from Creative Social have also given us two tickets to give to two lucky emailers. So if you fancy risking it ping an email to holly@youngcreativecouncil.com all we ask is that you take some snaps and give us a write-up to share with the unlucky ones who didn't win or get tickets in time.

Be sure to get in quick cos it's always a sell-out. The only thing we can't guarantee is free-flowing rose wine.

See you there!

Get Creative in Under 3 Minutes

Being creative doesn't mean spending hours agonising over a single idea. In fact quite the opposite. Forcing yourself to work under a timer can often achieve better results, much like working to a really tight deadline. Some of my finest design work has been created when it felt like it was physically impossible to achieve. The kind of hear-your-heartbeat-in-your-ears kind of stress.

Putting yourself under false deadlines will help push out different kinds of imagination and also improve your ability to get across a really good idea in a short amount of time. For instance for a pitch or if you really want to kick-ass at Pictionary.

Here's a list of ways to boost your flow of creativity and help improve your portfolio, just make sure you have a watch/timer handy and go for it.
