The Creative 100: Adweek Celebrates the Most Inspiring Minds in Marketing, Media and Culture

From global agency leaders to creators, celebrities and influencers

Every year, we survey the landscape of innovators in media, marketing and culture as we put together our annual Creative 100 list. And every year, we’re humbled and inspired by the creativity, fresh ideas and bracing insights these people surface. This year, the Creative 100 takes on extra resonance. At a time when so much of the news is troubling, it’s nice to bring—to borrow a phrase from John Krasinski, one of our celebrity honorees—some good news. Enjoy.

Check out Adweek’s Creative 100 for 2020 by category: Rising Talents | Senior Agency Leaders | Global Agency Leaders | Media Innovators | Celebrities & Influencers | Creators & Curators | Branded Content Innovators | Directors | Cover Star: Ramy Youssef
