Four global creative leaders including, Pum Lefebure, co-founder and chief creative officer of D.C.-based Design Army, will be heading for South Africa in August for the annual Loeries Creative Week, taking place in Durban. The four will head up key jury panels, as well as speak at the DStv Seminar of Creativity.
According to a media report, the international jury presidents are: Götz Ulmer, partner at Jung von Matt in Hamburg heading up Film & Radio panel; Keith Cartwright, executive creative director at California’s BSSP heads up the Print, Outdoor & Out of Home panel; Plan.Net’s Chief Creative Officer, Markus Maczey from Munich, heads up the Digital & Interactive panel; and Lefebure who will lead the Communication Design panel.
In all, said the media report, “more than 160 South African, regional and international judges have the formidable task of seeking out work that is bold, innovative, and that challenges convention.
“Says Loeries CEO Andrew Human: “The DStv Seminar of Creativity is an unmissable event for anyone who wants to be inspired by such great minds. Once again our jury presidents include some of the best creative leaders across the globe. It’s a honour to have them join us for Creative Week and I would urge everyone to hear their thoughts at our seminar.””
The DStv Seminar of Creativity is part of Loeries Creative Week Durban, taking place from August 14 – 21 and the jury presidents are four of the eight speakers.
