Championing Diversity 2017: 100 Inspiring Creatives this Black History Month

Diversity is at the core of what we do and is something we champion in all its forms, every day.

Though in homage to Black History Month October 2017, we focused on using The Dots to show inspirational, black individuals who are making creative history, now. We asked 11 of our creative heroes to each nominate 10 leading black changemakers and creators who are shaping our current cultural climate across different creative fields.
We'd like to publicly thank all that have been involved and give a special nod to Claud Williams and our friends at Dream Nation for consulting with us on this project.
Together, we can make a better and more diverse workplace, shaping a new creative industry for us all to enjoy.
