Highlights from Cannes Lions 2012

It’s hard to believe that our trip to Cannes Lions 2012 is coming to a close. This week has certainly been a memorable one, and we owe it to all of the attendees we got a chance to connect with throughout the week.

All week, we had a tent on the Parvais, where attendees stopped by and took fun photos with the Adobe Ampersand and a backdrop of Cannes, Then and Now. You can flip through some of them in our album here. Attendees got a chance to see real-time social conversations and data on our digital billboards, while sharing their thoughts on creativity Then and Now in our daily polls.

We kicked off the week with our panel, “Is data killing creativity?” Moderated by our SVP of Global Marketing, Ann Lewnes, she and fellow panelists Jon VeinJim Stengel, and Linus Karlsson, debated the subject of data’s impact on creativity today. Watch highlights of the conversation here.

We were excited to sponsor the Young Lions, MOFILM, and Creative Effectiveness awards again this year. The contestants never cease to amaze us with the work they create. We got a chance to catch some of them on camera throughout the week and get their thoughts on which era of creativity they prefer, Then or Now.

Throughout the week, we displayed results from our State of Create global benchmark study that we released back in April, including a few new points on Millennials’ views. Watch the animated infographic to find out some interesting statistics about the state of creativity today. What inspires you to create? Tell us with hashtag #CreateNow.

Our Siberia artists captured digital illustrations from the sights and conversations of the festival. Below is their last illustration. You can see all of them on Facebook.

With that, we’re signing off from Cannes Lions 2012. Until next year…au revoir!
