Are we a Magazine/ Twitter Feed/ iPad App/ Blog?

Creative Review is respected for cuttingedge editorial, stunning visuals and quality production, and has developed a strong, inspired and loyal readership across the globe.

Each month we focus on one key part of society, from food or travel to entertainment, education or fashion, we ask one big question - how is creativity changing our world?

Whether you are the creative director at a leading record label, the design director of a high street brand or the head of innovation at a major publisher, Creative Review is the title for you.

Creative Review Community

We aim to be at the heart of an industry we love dearly. We celebrate and encourage creativity, commercial success, talent and professional development. And we can’t do that without our international readership – to understand what makes you tick, what you like to look at and what you like to talk about.

Although based in the UK, we now have subscribers to our print magazine in over 80 countries and over 50% of our web visitors, and 72% of our iPad App readers, are from outside the UK.

A few years ago we started a Twitter feed so that we could share our content quickly, hear what you were talking about and what you thought of us - we now have just over 720,000 followers, just under 20,000 fans on Facebook and over 8000 followers on Pinterest.

Here’s what some people have to say about Creative Review;

@CreativeReview The Photography Annual is very, very, sexy. Some stunning work in there.

"Loving the latest Olympic themed issue of @CreativeReview. Offers real depth to the creative behind Olympic design past and present."

“Monthly ritual: receive @CreativeReview, sniff pages, feel stock, flick from back to front and finally, read every last word.” @Alix_Land

"The most passed around magazine in our office? Of course it's @CreativeReview. Patiently waiting my turn to see the new issue." @thamesandhudson

Creative Review Awards Schemes

To celebrate the very best of the brilliant work we get sent every day, we have two juried awards schemes

The Annual, published alongside the May issue of the magazine, celebrates the outstanding work of the previous year across advertising, design, digital and music videos.
