The UK’s first ever Creative Week is finally here! The event, which is a celebration of the creativity in the UK, kicked off on Monday with an overview of the creative industries – and what an overview it was!

And if you missed the live show, don’t worry because the sessions are all available on-demand here at the end of each day. That’s also where you can stay tuned for all the action during the rest of the week. Whether you’re a design nut, film buff, mobile fiend or photography pro, there’s something for everyone, so stay tuned!

 

We kicked off the creative industry overview with a lively panel discussion between Brendan Dawes, Joel Gethin Lewis and Dr Chris Gerry who gathered in the studio with presenter David McClelland to discuss if creativity can help drive the UK out of recession. With the magnificent setting of Tower Bridge behind them, the debate flowed for almost an hour, and those watching online had their say too with a whopping 88% of people that took part in our daily poll agreeing that creativity is a huge factor in stimulating economic growth and solving problems.

The evangelist demos and show-and-tell sessions that followed included jaw-dropping tips and tricks for Illustrator CS6 and Photoshop CS6, which were all received with relish and resulted in our #CreativeWeekUK Twitter followers going crazy about the black magic and special sauce Adobe uses in its products! Go to our on-demand hub if you missed it and want to see for yourself what was so special.

And that was just the first day! Carry on following all the action on Twitter using #CreativeWeekUK. And don’t just stay behind your screen, get involved through our competitions and audience challenges.

 

Creative Week: Calling all film and video buffs!

After our first buzzing Twitter Chat last week (resulting in us trending in the UK!), we can’t wait to discuss the glittering world of film and video this Thursday.  Join us at the same time (6.30pm – 7.30pm) on Twitter and use #CreativeWeekUK to take part.

Recently, there’s been growing pressure for production companies to deliver more for less and we can’t wait to hear your view on whether this is leading to lower standards, or driving the industry forward with renewed creativity. Some of the topics up for discussion include;

  • Are quality standards being affected by reduced budgets – or are studios forcing more creative solutions instead?
  • How could clients make it easier for you to do great work within their budget and timescale requirements?
  • Do clients just expect you to do more with less, or are they approaching you with less ambitious ideas?

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this and the other questions we’ll be posing, so follow @AdobeUK to watch the conversation from the start.

Remember, everyone who uses #CreativeWeekUK in their tweets during the Twitter Chat will automatically be in with a chance of winning tickets to the Film & Video day of Creative Week on Wednesday 11th July, which will be jam-packed with exclusive demos, lively debates, creative challenges and inspirational case studies!

If you aren’t one of the lucky ticket holders, we’ll be broadcasting all the sessions live online, so why not register now?

The name Wayne Hemingway might ring just a few bells – the top English designer and co-founder of Red or Dead has long been a real trailblazer for British creativity. We were lucky enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule to get his views on all things creative, why Britain is a creative force to be reckoned with, how digital is democratising design and what part Adobe plays in helping the fashion industry move forward. 

Check out his interview here:

Last Monday at our Adobe CS6 and  Adobe Creative Cloud launch in London we were very lucky to have three creative industry giants join us to discuss a topic close to our hearts – the role of creativity today.

The illustrious panel, chaired by Adobe’s CTO Kevin Lynch, included illustrator Mr Bingo, designer Wayne Hemingway and film director Gareth Edwards, and we caught their interesting discussion on film for you. Check it out!
