Only CR casts a critical, analytical eye on creativity in all its many forms. What’s more, May 2016 welcomed our redesign, with a new look, new sections and a new focus on what it takes to be a creative leader. 

Every two months, hear from our Creative Leaders network – 50 influential figures across the UK’s creative industries – as we tap into their expertise around running creative teams. Every issue also focuses on one key part of society; from food to travel, entertainment to fashion, we explore one big question - how is creativity changing your world?
