Back in 2017, a group of creatives had a vision; To build a local community of individuals from the creative industry. Their aim was simple, to create and inspire! Fast forward to 2020 and Creatives Malta has become a hub for sharing portfolio work. Anyone from graphic designers, photographers, and other artists are encouraged to share their work with the community through Creatives Malta’s social media. The organisation has even organised a couple of spectacular events that gave local artists a chance to exhibit their work, meet and collaborate with other creatives.
Behance Portfolio Review
In 2017, Creatives Malta in collaboration with the MCAST Institute of Creative Arts organised the Behance Portfolio Review. Students and other artists got the opportunity to submit their portfolio and receive guidance and advice from renowned Maltese artists; Kurt Paris, Luke Azzoppardi, Matthew Demarco and Matthew Stroud. Four participants were also awarded the Behance Portfolio Appreciation Coin for the best portfolios of the night!
50 Posters for Malta
In 2018, Creatives Malta issued a call for artists. It was later announced that 50 participants were chosen to submit a poster that would later be exhibited at the President’s Palace, San Anton. The artists were given full creative freedom to design something reflective of Malta. The posters were put up for auction and all proceeds were later donated to three different charities: The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation, Children in Need Foundation and Do Project.
2020: The new decade brought about change for the organisation. Starting with a revamp of their look & branding! A clean, modern and sophisticated logo featuring custom typography was designed giving Creatives Malta a fresh new look.
