Our focus is on excellence and innovation in design, advertising, new media, photography, typography, illustration - everything and anything that is a part of creativity in communications. We show the leading work and profile the makers, reveal the trends and see beyond the hype, talk to the clients and others involved in shaping the best in modern communications.

AbleStable® Review
3 out of 5 stars

The Creative Review is beautifully presented on high quality paper and a feast to the eyes. This magazine is well placed in the welcome area of a graphic design studio or an exclusive art gallery, but like its counterpart the Art Review, it restricts its scope to Western art trends and as a result seriously limits the overall effectiveness of its claim to being a generic creative review.

The Creative Review is London based and its writers urbane, whose context is more often than not the commercial art and high-end design markets. Reading the magazine you get the distinct impression you are either in 'the club', or not a part of it. Perhaps its high monthly sales figure of 20,000 copies (large sales for a creative magazine market), is a testament to the many who aspire to be included or associated with the Western contemporary art scene.

Unlike the Art Review, the Creative Review is image heavy, with photos of artworks and personalities making up around 70% of its total content. This then is essentially a style magazine for the cultural elite. If you want to adorn your shelves with beautiful images and an exquisitely designed publication, then the Creative Review will serve your purpose, but don't expect detailed analyses or critical reviews of contemporary art or culture.
