They just may be 2012’s most popular creatives.
Expert judges perused more than 2,760 digital artist, illustrator, graphic artist, art director, design shop, and student portfolios to choose the (relative) handful to be featured on this year’s Adweek Talent 100 powered by yours truly, Vitamin T.
Of those 100, the 10 below were chosen as the crème de la crème of creative.
Be sure to check these out, get inspired, and then send off a congratulatory e-card—that is, if they aren’t too busy with the paparazzi.
Our congrats to the winners and, in fact, everyone who took the time to participate!
