A Createful New Year

It’s 2017 and we are very excited to start off this new year. 2016 saw a lot go down that people weren’t too happy about, and many have even branded it “the worst year ever”.

Goodbye sweet treats, hello nice teeth!

Cake is a huge part of Createful culture and always will be. We have regular ‘Bake Off’ events and a treat table in the middle of our office.

Social Media: The ultimate platform for mediated communication

Facebook has approximately 1.71 billion active profiles. We are often using the site to share what we did on the weekend, what we like watching on Netflix and to moan about what really grinds our gears. We are used to sharing our lives online. But is social media a platform that portrays our lives & identities or an idealistic version of them?
