Ben Scruton was delighted to once again team up with NESTA to create another fabulous set of illustrations. NESTA's upcoming report, ‘Creativity Vs the Robots’ suggests that the higher the level of creativity in your job, the least likely it can be automated in the future. NESTA have designed a fun online quiz, which measures the creative and social content of your job to give you one of six results ranging from a high probability of automation to a low probability of automation. Ben was asked to create six ‘cyborg’ characters for the results page of the quiz. Ben absolutely loved working on the project, which allowed his trademark humour to shine through.
A particular hit which landed on desks and screens early this year was the stunning work that Jordan Metcalf created for Advertising Age’s “Top Ad Campaigns of the 21st Century” issue.

The issue contains the top 15 ad campaigns of the 21st Century along with behind the scenes stories of how the ground breaking BMW Films were created, how the guerrilla tactics of American Legacy Foundation’s Truth campaign inspired, how The Man Your Man Could Smell Like and a Subservient Chicken showed how much fun interactivity could be and why PC vs Mac made comparative advertising not only palatable, but entertaining.
