ADC*E – Creative Express Rome

Creative Express makes a pit stop in Rome

  • Italian creatives Giulia Mandalà and Eugenio De Riso selected to join European creative elite.
  • Young creatives asked to foster entrepreneurship among designers.
  • Emphasis on disruptive technology for ADCE’s next creative stars of Europe.

The Creative Express programme will this year be hosted at Pi Campus in Rome. The event, organised by the Art Directors Club for Europe (ADCE) in collaboration with Pi Campus, takes place May 18-19 2017.

A true tour of Europe, previous Creative Express stops have included Helsinki, Munich and Vienna. Every edition brings together the continent’s best young art directors, copywriters and designers to tackle a real-world business challenge in a classroom like no other. The Creative Express Rome will be the first to focus on startups: Pi Campus is a startup district and a venture fund that invests in global talent. The young creatives will be hosted at its HQ in Eur green area of Rome.

Describing the innovative location for the event, Pi Campus founder Marco Trombetti said, “We love state-of-the-art technology applied to disrupt big slow moving industries. Artificial Intelligence is in our DNA but we love founders that add design and art to bring emotions into technology products. We invest in startups designed to be global. Italy is where our heart is”.

Together with Creative Express director HP Albrecht, Trombetti will challenge 28 young creatives to develop a communication campaign aimed at inspiring designers around the world to found a startup over just two days. The final projects will be presented to a daunting audience of 100 people from the industry.

The group, split into five teams, will be mentored by an array of high profile Creative Directors. These include Ricardo Wolff, Creative Director at DDB Berlin (DE), Samuel López, Creative Director at Sr. y Sra. Wilson (ES) and Hannes Böker, Creative Director at Team Robert Rottensteiner (AT).

The up-and-coming stars have been selected from 14 European countries, nominated by their respective ADCE member clubs. To be included, they must be under 28 years of age, English speaking, and have a minimum of 2 years of professional experience. The 2017 cohort is:

ADCE announces new educational partnerships for Rising Stars program 2017

The Art Directors Club Europe (ADCE) has unveiled its Rising Stars program for the first half of 2017.

Rising Stars comprises all of the ADCE’s best-in-class educational and networking initiatives. Co-funded by Creative Europe Programme – created by the European Commission to fund development of the creative and cultural sectors – Rising Stars aims to give cross-cultural learning opportunities and support to creatives at every stage of their career. 

In 2017, ADCE is offering more training opportunities than ever before, kicking off with:

1. Personal Branding Masterclass (with Jürgen Salenbacher)
Dates: 24-25 March, Barcelona

In times of transition, everybody is facing the same question: “What should I do next?”

Hosted by Hyper Island tutor Jürgen Salenbacher, this masterclass will teach you how to better understand your identity, how to position yourself in the creative economy, and equip you with the tools and methods to help others on the same journey.

2. Presenting Creative Work & The Business of Ideas (in partnership with D&AD Festival 2017)
Dates: 25-26 April, London
Presenting Creative Work (with Tom Evans)

It’s a fact that 99% of the creative work produced in an agency never sees the light of day. This session is designed to help increase the odds of your ideas making it to the outside world. It teaches how to structure an effective creative pitch presentation and present ideas with more confidence.

 The Business of Ideas (with Patrick Collister)

This session is all about learning how to conceive creative commercial ideas on an individual level. It will improve creative decision-making, explain the difference between left brain and right brain thinking and crucially, sets out the four points of conflict that anybody who creates for a living will encounter while doing their job, before demonstrating how to deal with them.                                                                                                 

3. Creative Leadership (in partnership with the Berlin School of Creative Leadership)
Dates: 4-5 May, Berlin

Two days of talks, discussions and workshops on the power of leadership, based on the Leadership Acumen concept, which is at the heart of the Berlin School’s approach. Led by Jamshid Alamuti and Professor David Slocum, the program focuses on practical topics, using real world examples and participant interaction. 

4. Art First: Art Direction In Advertising, Editorial and Fashion (curated by the ADG-FAD)
Dates: 8-9 June, Barcelona

Two days of seminars designed to delve into the art of art direction, explore the different work of three key industries: advertising, editorial, and fashion. The program is a great opportunity to meet top creatives from different fields, while together exploring the wider role of Art Direction and its future.

Rising Stars courses are open to professionals from across the creative industries, with ADCE members receiving a discount. For more information, contact your local club ( info@adci.it ) or visit www.adceurope.org/risingstars.

Registration Process:
1. Clubs can submit up to 2 candidates for this course.
2. Send your names and contact info to info@adci.it 
3. Candidate Submission Deadline is 24 February or until spaces are sold out - Personal Branding Masterclass (with Jürgen Salenbacher)

“It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the Navy.” Steve Jobs

Aziende come Instagram, Airbnb, Guthub, Youtube e Android sono co-fondate da designer. Il nuovo sistema di pensiero delle tech companies è “design driven” e i designer sono i nuovi “pirati” del panorama delle start up.

  • Un pirata riesce ad essere creativo e focalizzato in un ambiente ostile.
  • Un pirata agisce in modo indipendente e si assume rischi intelligenti tenendo sempre a mente la sua visione.
  • La mente del pirata pensa sempre e solo ad una cosa: al tesoro.

Perché stiamo organizzando un design hackathon a Barcellona?

Stiamo riflettendo sul futuro della nostra professione, che in pochi anni cambierà del tutto.
Avremo più Human Organ Designer che art director. (fastfuture.com)

Noi, come ADCE, vogliamo connettere il mondo delle startup tecnologiche con il design con un progetto che risponda a due obiettivi:

1. Supportare idee di design (experience design, app design, industrial design, product design, service design, social design) che non possono essere messe sul mercato per mancanza di soldi o competenze tecnologiche, che i designer normalmente non hanno. Portiamo investitori e ingegneri a Barcellona per dare un futuro a queste idee.

2. Aiutare direttori creativi, agenzie, designer, che prima o poi si troveranno a lavorare con le start up, a capire come funziona questo mondo dal di dentro. Comunicazione tradizionale e branding non sono prioritarie per loro, lo diventano solo alla fine del processo.

Avremo sicuramente giovani designer di Barcellona, ma ci piacerebbe avere creativi da tutti i paesi. Può essere che ognuno di noi abbia un’idea nel cassetto e non sappia da che parte cominciare, può darsi che alcuni di quelli che fanno parte delle giurie vogliano provare a vedere come funziona là fuori, può darsi che ci siano direttori creativi che vogliano cimentarsi a fare gli imprenditori.

Il team vincente sarà ospitato una settimana a Roma a PiCampus -www.picampus.it - acceleratore di start up con grande esperienza sulla tecnologia che sta aprendo al mondo del design, per poter sviluppare l’idea potenzialmente più fertile.

Sei un pirata?

Partecipa il 14 e 15 ottobre a Barcellona al Pirates Hackathon (Turn design ideas into ventures).

Scarica qui la call e il modulo di iscrizione qui e inviala il modulo entro il 14 settembre all’assistente ADC*E, Aline Charransol, aline@adceurope.org tenendo in copia info@adci.it (oggetto: Pirates Hackathon Submission – Italy).

This year, as the ADCE Awards celebrates a quarter-century, its longest-tenured Austrian Board Member and Merlicek & Grossebner CEO Johannes Newrkla will preside over the six juries.

As a true European border-crosser and frequent award-winner, Johannes embodies the ADCE values of multi-cultural learning and excellence in European advertising and design. He was a founder member of the ADCE in 1990 and led the organization as President for eight years, making him the perfect candidate to lead the anniversary Awards.

In October, Johannes will be joined by the following Jury Presidents:

 In total, 52 leading creatives and designers have been selected from the 18 ADCE member countries to judge the 25th ADCE Awards. The full list can be found at the ADCE website.

The Champions League of Creativity
The ADCE Awards are unique in that only creative work that has been awarded at a local European show can qualify, ensuring an elite selection in which every single entry that a judge sees has already been nominated as a standout piece of creative.

In addition to the categories listed, the awards also have space to promote young talent and students with the European Student of the Year and European Young Creative of the Year competitions.

In October, the juries will meet to debate and discuss the best creative work from across Europe, before awarding Gold, Silver and Bronze across each category, as well as the overall Grand Prix, to be revealed at the ADCE Awards Gala on October 15.

Following the awards, all the winning work will feature in the 2016 ADCE Annual, which showcases the year’s best in graphic design and advertising, and also toured throughout Europe at local exhibitions. 

The 3rd European Creativity Festival
The ADCE Awards return as part of the European Creativity Festival at the Disseny Hub Barcelona. Created to celebrate and recognize the art of creativity, graphic design and new creative solutions, the Festival features a packed programme of conferences, workshops, networking opportunities and other activities, delivered by some of the most innovative and inspiring people in Europe.

This year’s theme will be the “The Hybridscape: Where unexpected connections are made”, with the full line-up of speakers and ticket information to be announced very soon.

Entry Fees and Information
As a non-profit organization, the ADCE Awards offers significantly reduced entry fees to ensure agencies of all sizes from across Europe have the opportunity to participate. Entry is free to all Gold winners from eligible national shows, 100€ for Silver winners, and 170€ for all other awarded work (Bronze, Shortlisted etc).
