Which country has the best creatives?

Hi i'm coming from a small country GREECE, but it would be very interesting to converse on which country produces the best creative
work, although this is not really objective i think that it would be an interesting subject to develop.
Thanks.

I think every nation has good and creatives. But in general Singapore has excellent reputation.

singapore has an excellent reputation but most of the best creatives there come from abroad.

Singapore does not come close to New York, London, Paris.

Ivan,are you sure you have considered India.The creatives cater to multiple cultures and appeal too.Hence,the awards at Cannes and so on..

Intelligent ads are the need of the hour.

wow. that's nice to hear. but to tell you the truth, most ads i see in S'pore are dull and really insults the intelligence of the viewer. care to share some big names frm singapore?

Well, the ads I have seen in Singapore are just sligthly above average of other countries, but the work in the books and annuals is exceptional.

I completely agree, even though I was born and raised here. A lot of Singaporeans think ads here are great, but as a student majoring in advertising, I'm beginning to open my eyes and realize this isnt the case.

No offence to anyone, but we have a hell of a lot of room for improvement :T

USA has nice creatives and constantly push the envelope. there is a big market here so there is more need for the next best thing to grab your attention. i sometimes feel, however, that other countries are less limited in what they are able to do. It might just be the exceptions that i see on websites like these and other so i might be wrong.

I think so too specially because US has a tendency to attract poor valorous people from all over the world with the promise of a better future.

Let us not mix awards with good creative. I think London is still the best in the world. Singapore is good as far as award shows are concerned but I have not really seen good stuff in real life. Same for India. Though it is getting better. US TV ads are generally crappy apart from the ones we get to see. Brazil is quite good, specially when it comes to art direction. Someone mentioned Dubai is good, they have one or 2 good ads a season, but I think they should do better. Problem with Dubai is it has not the best talent. We had a saying back in Hong Kong. Failed in London, Try Hong kong, or in short FILTH. Lot of filth in Dubai etc.

Beruto, you did not mention AMSTERDAM. Decent work, though I think most of the work of 180 is cliche, specially those adidas ads.

There are some creative agencies we never hear. Mother, St. Luke, BBH, Carmychael Lynch, Pyro, Cliff Freeman etc etc.

i dont agree with the above post. you can get great clients here who are happy to run lots - take for instance pot noodle, fantastic creativity, very open minded clients. of course you can get clients who want very safe stuff, you've just got to challenge them or just dont give them safe work. end of. it's as much the creative teams to push the idea and sell it in as the client to open their arms and embrace different creative.

doing that on friday - see how that goes!

It's not fair to compare the USA as a whole to other small nations just because of it's size of population. A fair comparison would be to compare USA vs India or USA vs Europe. See which one has more great work.

Which country has best creatives...hhhhmmmm as TS said, it's probably hard to be objective....I mean what kind of criterias do defines creatives in TS POV? The most awarded, the most productive, most fresh ideas, or the most campaigns etc. Hard to see the truth if you want to single out a country, it would be much easier to narrow them down to agencies, or individuals. Country have taboos, restrictions and culture (and religions, save USA and Europe), not to mention stiff-neck clients (who believe advertising is a waste of time and money they cannot do without)

If i have to point one country, i have to point at Thailand....and Japan. Thailand especially, I think is much superior to Singapore. i find that Thailand have sensibility in their creatives to their cultures and quirks as Japan have always done. No offence, Singapore looks great because they were seen in "understandable english" context.

i agree, it also depends on the clients' mentality.
some european advertising mekkas such as london and amsterdam profit by some clients' more "laid-back" mentality (though laid-back is probably not the right word in this context).
when rating a specific country's creative output we also have to consider that advertising hot spots usually attract good people from all over the world.

Hmmm, tough. I really like a lot of stuff I've been seeing out of Brazil lately, although I wouldn't say they're the best yet.

Honestly, it's most likely London or Singapore, although South Africa can also dish out some kick-ass creative.

Are people still harping on this topic!? Folks, its simple: the best creatives don't come out of a specific country because the people there are inherently talented or whatever. And this topic to me is moot because really the discussion should be about cities, not countries. What are the world's major cities in every region? London, NYC, Singapore, Sao Paolo, Paris, etc. That's where the "best creatives" can be found because that's where the major agencies have offices, so naturally the best ad creatives are gonna congregate in those cities for the jobs. End of story. It's very silly how some people are turning this into a nationalist dick-measuring contest. Grow up.

I wont say India is the best but there are few reasons that makes Indian Agencies an exception.

India has 16 official LANGUAGES and the National Language Hindi is not Popular in South India.

The cultural and understandings are quite different between North & East & South.

Usually Ads are recreated with small changes as per the regions.

Thus a national product or service, if needs to be aired countrywide is really challenging.

For that it needs to be simple, witty and emotional. Also, Indian's are also cost sensitive.

Indian Agencies usually crack this nut.

Chk this ad and its simple message -

I'm quite bias with this question being Scandinavian myself, but after having travelled the world and lived in several non-european countries, I still reckon Scandinavian countries do the best ads. But that is of course they "speak to me" in a way ads from cultures not similar to scandinavian culture never would.

I feel India is producing one of the best creatives in the world. I know European and Americans are also very good in Creatives.. and India is giving them a good fight., and that too at half price.

Iii think I'm gonna vote for Thailand, it seems that they understand perfectly about their market, and able to make something selling, or educating but still have the award winning quality

In term of Design, I vote for Denmark, by looking at their history and accomplishments in design. But in the advertising design, that's a different story I think.
