Inspiration in a Tube

Creative souls rejoice, for there is a brand spanking new outlet for your work - enter The Inspirational Channel. The creative outlet is the result of partnership between YouTube and D&AD, a not-for-profit organisation that represents the international design, advertising and creative communities. The new channel acts as a hub for the latest and greatest videos in commercial creativity.

“The Inspiration Channel is a spot for self-initiated projects or your latest great ad,” says D&D’s chief executive Tim O’Kennedy.  “Awards season is under way and it can be a stressful time for creatives as they wait for results.  We hope this becomes a playground for the creative community and a source of inspiration and fun.  D&AD’s creative connections and YouTube’s far-reaching online expertise make this an exciting partnership.”

Tom Uglow, creative lead of Creative Lab EMEA, Google and YouTube says creatives and agencies around the world utilise YouTube as both a medium to expose their own work and as a research tool for new ideas and inspiration.

“By partnering with D&AD we hope to take this to a new level - creating a dedicated space for creatives to find the newest and most interesting work while presenting their own. D&AD, an organisation with considerable pedigree and respect in this area, are the perfect partner for this,” he says.
