London has always been a magnet for young people pursuing a creative career. The city is a capital for artistic expression and encourages experimentation of raw and edgy artistry.
It is a global hub offering a thriving cultural center connected to all major creative industries, from music and art to fashion and advertising. London has it all, from some of the world’s most influential branding and design studios to an expansive underground scene. This commercial vs. experimental dichotomy has led to the success of London’s extraordinary creative scene.
