In a statement released this week, Rob Mclennan, chairperson of the Creative Circle, said that: “More than ever, digital communication is becoming a bigger and bigger component in all brand communication strategies. The advertising environment is changing fast, and there are more varied forms of communication and media than ever before. They all have to work together to give a unified brand image. Because of this, there has to be a much greater spirit of collaboration between the various creative industries of traditional advertising, design, digital, activation, production etc. And there has been a marked improvement in the manner the various disciplines work together.”R
