Our Top 5 Creative Moments for March

Our Top 5 Creative Moments for March

This month we have seen the world transform before our eyes.

In this new creative world, we have seen brands and creative teams excel through adversity.

Here we take a look back at our own creative moments over the month, which include an open letter from Sue Higgs, a creative director who has fought all the way, and a review from Gabi Mostert who asks - when it comes to humour in creativity, are boys having all the fun?

Shoppable Girls was a hard-hitting campaign that brought reality home for Kim Allain, as was the very relatable depiction of a woman's world in the Girls Girls Girls magazine film, fronted by Cynthia Nixon and reviewed by Jo Chappel.

Finally, nobody can escape coronavirus and Oliver Edwards takes a look at the more light-hearted way in which brands responded at the start of the crisis earlier this month.
