Capture 'the power of creativity' for Talenthouse

Creators Selected On
November 1, 2019
We believe that a great idea can come from anywhere – and anyone. Creativity has the power to unite us and shape the way we feel about everything. This in mind, we want you to channel your creative energy into visually inspiring, minimalist and engaging artwork to use across various digital and print channels.

What does 'the power of creativity' mean to you? Illustrate this concept in a clean and simplistic style, including elements that celebrate the collaborative, creative spirit of the Talenthouse community.

This brief has a really short submission period of just a few days, so be quick! Talenthouse will choose 1 Selected Creator who will receive £1,500, and up to 3 Finalists who will receive £500 each. Get inspired with this mood board.
Things to Consider
  • In your work, capture what ‘the power of creativity’ means to you, celebrating Talenthouse's collaborative and creative spirit!
  • Think about these themes: community, culture, collaboration, technology.
  • Consider how ideas develop in your brain: thinking clouds, words or the spark of energy when an idea comes to you!
  • Create clean, simple designs that are bold, vibrant and inspiring.
  • Create 2D static digital work as layered files in AI or PSD, to the size of 3M width x 2M height (min. 300dpi).
  • You could create really detailed, or really minimalist work - we're open to your ideas!

  • Include 1 of these Talenthouse logos somewhere in your work.
  • Use purples, blues and reds as the main color palette, and other complementary colors as a secondary color palette.
  • You can include people in your work, but please ensure they look over 18 years of age and don't have a likeness to anyone real.
  • You can include text in your work, perhaps 'the power of creativity'.
  • Selected work will be displayed on a digital screen, and potentially across digital channels as well (e.g. social media, website etc).
  • Check out this mood board for inspiration.
