Why craft matters in advertising

Trevor Robinson OBE, founder and executive creative director of Quiet Storm, examines how craft in advertising has changed in the digital age, but why it remains essential to creating emotional and effective campaigns.


Trevor Robinson OBE:

A creative idea is worth nothing if it can't be brought to life, and to reflect this Cannes Lions launched the Industry Craft Lions in 2018. An addition to the Film & Digital Craft categories, "the Industry Craft Lion celebrates the creative artistry, talent and skill required to deliver a beautifully executed solution and bring a creative idea to life". As the president for the category 2019 Trevor Robinson OBE shares his thoughts on what he's aiming to achieve with the category this year.

When we work with brands, we start by celebrating the truth of who they are and the people who are really going to love them. We mark ideas by their ability to trigger strong emotional reactions to grab attention.
