Create Journal

Studio credit: Blast

Create is an exciting new journal published by Arts Council England as part of its State of the Arts Programme. With the purpose of stimulating discussion about the true value of the arts, it brings together articles, research and poetry by a diverse mix of contributors, from former Prime Minister John Major to performance poet Hollie McNish.

The outcome was an editorially-led design that felt creative, independent, and spontaneous. Illustrator Lizzy Stewart was commissioned for the project, whose drawings provide a rich visual response to each section. Lizzy’s illustration was again utilised to create four engaging infographics about the role of creativity today, and produced supporting digital assets for the Arts Council England website.
