Established in 2011, Creative England has “the core purpose of supporting the sustainable growth of independent creative businesses, and the talent that feeds them, in every part of England outside London” focusing on film, television, games, and digital and creative services. In November, Creative England “put out an open call for applications for a new brand identity in November last year, asking designers to present an image that captured Creative England’s work and values.” (Way to support the creative community asking for spec work!). After 150 submissions, they picked a logo designed by Sheffield-based Peter and Paul. Story here. The logo represents “fluidity” and is about showing them as “dynamic and moving.”
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
