About

Creative Boom is an art, design & visual communication blog, offering inspiration & ideas for creatives worldwide.

Established in 2009, the site was founded by its editor Katy Cowan from Boomerang, a PR agency in Manchester, who wanted to celebrate, inspire and support the creative industries by promoting their work and offering helpful tips and advice.

From artists and freelancers to larger art organisations and creative agencies – we aim to discover and champion the very best established and emerging talent.

Extending beyond a creative's work life, we also love to cover play – featuring travel, life & style ideas and inspirations that would appeal to any creative heart and mind.

Since its launch, Creative Boom has championed thousands of creatives across the UK and beyond, grown to attract a monthly reach of 23 million people and has had recognition or support from brands as big as BBC, Adobe, Yahoo, Vimeo, Samsung, Jaguar and The Guardian.
