Being creative hasn’t gotten any easier lately. In fact, a new study by iStock by Getty Images out today found that half of creatives believe that creativity is stagnating or declining in their profession. Why? Anyone that has ever been told to “Make the black darker” or “Make this ad 15% funnier” can easily understand the barriers faced by creative professionals every day.
The good news is that you’re not alone. To help kick off its Free the Creative campaign, iStock wants to hear about the craziest requests or feedback that you’ve received from a client.
See below for your chance to win credits from iStock and read more about what creatives had to say in the ‘Free the Creative’ study here.
