Willkommen, Bienvenue, ようこそ, 歡迎, 환영, أهلا وسهلا, Καλώς ορίσατε, Bem Vindo, Bienvenido, Selamat Datang, to International Creatives London.
Founded in December 2015 by two creatives, Joel Lim (iris Worldwide) and Frederico Roberto (VML), the non-profit International Creatives London aims to support foreign creatives at every level in this multicultural city.
ICLDN is led by a dedicated Work Team comprising the founders, Silvia Nardella, Renato Tata and Vasiliki Katsarou.
Our members include photographers, designers, strategists, copywriters, art directors, producers, film directors, UX consultants, creative technologists and so on. We also offer membership to British nationals who believe in what we stand for and want to participate.
Soon after our launch, Campaign wrote about us in April 2016. Thanks to media attention and word-of-mouth, ICLDN grew to 700 members in under a year. The group and its activities continue to resonate with the expat creative community in London.
ICLDN has received tremendous support from ad agencies and recruiters alike – CP+B, AKQA, VML, iris, BBH, MullenLowe, Major Players and others. We meet about six times a year to network and be inspired by our keynote speakers.
Our Facebook group has over 1,000 members at the moment. Members share their thoughts as well as useful contacts, interesting initiatives and inspiring articles. We have published a comprehensive guide for creatives who are new to London and trying to settle in and find work. We also have launched Facebook page to connect talent to opportunities.
