What if we stopped being creative?

The art would be taken out of our communication.

Design would be formed solely by function.
A hard-to-look-at, unmotivated, logical mess.
Our words would have less impact, written without inspiration, thought or melody.

This year, the show that celebrates creativity will remain unstyled, undesigned and untitled.

We hope Columbus proves that creative isn’t just “nice to have”, but rather, the essential human element that helps change minds and shape ideas.

See the creative best.
The work that matters.
