Creative Comeback London 2021

Back to Blogs

We are delighted to partner with Creative Equals once again for this year’s Creative Comeback London, in partnership with D&D and Diageo.

Creative Comeback is a FREE to attend 2 week programme aimed at supporting 30 women and non-binary people who have taken a career break back into employment in the creative advertising & design industry.

The programme will provide you with the tools, knowledge and confidence to help secure full-time or freelance employment in today’s evolving landscape.  

Creative Comeback 2021 is open to women, non-binary and gender non-conforming people, who've previously worked as a creative (art director, copywriter, designer or similar role) in the advertising, marketing and design industry.


The programme will run virtually for two weeks.

In week 1, you will get to meet your fellow attendees and a creative mentor from one of the programme's partner agencies, and you'll receive a creative advertising brief from Diageo. D&AD will run sessions to help you flex your creative muscles again and get up to speed with creative industry trends.  You'll also receive a portfolio crit and hear from key speakers about how to navigate today’s job market.

In week 2, you'll spend 3 days working as a team of 2-3 (with support from your creative mentor) on the Diageo brief. You'll then present your campaign ideas and / or designs back to Diageo and a winning presentation will be chosen! On the final day there will be a Talent Day for you to meet HR / Talent / Hiring Managers from the agency partners who'll offer you career and portfolio advice.

​Please note - applications are now closed for the 2021 cohort. For information on the programme and how it works, click here.
