Creativepool's Top 100 Influencer

Published by

Our 2016 Annual came with a new accolade: The Influencer of the Year, where Creativepool honour the individuals within the industry that have surpassed expectations and impacted the market in 2015 and beyond.
They're people who don't follow the herd but instead look for what’s next. They create change that alters lives or improves society. They move and shake. They have the power to change perceptions.

The Top 100 and the winner of Influencer of the Year according to the judges, along with the Influencer of the Year's People's Choice winner, have all been featured in the 2016 Annual. Their names are in the 15,000 printed copies distributed across the globe, to brands and agencies, and have been sent worldwide to amazing events like Cannes Lions and Advertising Week in London, New York & Tokyo (and more!).
