Your Creative Career Awaits!
I made a visit at the Miami Ad School the other day & it’s amazing how many students are launching their creative careers globally.
The creative industries economic estimates, released on Tuesday, show that creative companies now account for just over 5% of the UK economy at £84bn.
One of the areas of strongest growth was in film, TV, video, radio and photography, which rose almost 14%, second only to architecture and graphic products and fashion design. Advertising and marketing increased by almost 11% between 2013 and 2014 but publishing went up just 2.8%. The number of jobs in the creative industries — which includes both creative and support roles — increased by 5.5% in the same time period, to 1.8 million.
All other economies such as Brazil, Nigeria etc are experiencing similar growth. This is a paradigm shift in the economic imperative and something we should all take advantage of.
