LIA is one of the world’s finest festivals of creativity and it is a great honour to preside over the LIA Non-Traditional jury. This category is for people who believe in creativity over conformity. It’s for those with the courage to throw caution to the wind; those who embrace the untried and untested, the unexpected and the unconventional (…) Our ideas need to move at the speed of culture and land with seismic strength. They need the impact to shape attitudes and transform behavior. More than ever before, successful brands need to be guided by creative intuition and fuelled by bravery. The Non-Traditional category is where you’ll find them. After all, world-changing ideas never come from comfort zones.
