Computer Arts closes, Brand Impact Awards lives on

Over the past two years, it's been my pleasure to edit one of my favourite magazines – the design and illustration title Computer Arts. For the past quarter century, it's inspired countless creatives to go freelance, to start up their own design events, and to pursue passionate careers in the creative industry. And yet, faced with the strains of faltering international distribution, reduced footfall at the newsstand, and a lack of advertising revenue, this month's issue of Computer Arts is the last.

Although CA will no longer be able to champion vital new talent on the rise, or showcase the very best projects that the industry has to offer, its spirit will certainly live on in the industry-renowned Brand Impact Awards, currently set to celebrate the best branding in the world – and its seventh consecutive year – this 10 September 2020.
