Founded in 2009 by Manchester-based creative Katy Cowan, Creative Boom is a UK-based blog offering free inspiration and ideas for creatives, attracting over 300,000 unique visitors each month. Sharing Inspiration with work from the fields of advertising, animation, art, crafts, design, photography and illustration - not only to bring you inspiration for your projects but also to help others by exposing their talent.
We also love to provide Tips that will help you to go freelance, build your business, further your career or even just enhance your creative life. And when you've got enough inspiration and tips under your belt, we have a range of Features - inviting you to meet other creatives, see where they work and find out more about their creative loves. We even love to write about cities across the world to explore local creative scenes.
And then, when you need freelance work, or the next step up the career ladder - our Jobs Board should help. Or if you're after some extra exposure or looking to work with other creatives - you should check out our Directory and get yourself listed by signing up.
Since its inception, Creative Boom has had recognition or support from brands as big as Adobe, Vimeo, and Jaguar and has been featured in BBC, The Guardian, Computer Arts and The Independent. It was also recently deemed as the UK's 'biggest and most important blog for creatives' during a visit to Number 10 Downing Street with Enterprise Nation.
