    Créative France

    Créative France is the story of accentuating the ‘creative’, both literally and figuratively. The campaign has a simple, specific goal: shine the spotlight on the leading individuals and major innovations that make France what it is today. It’s also a means of promoting France’s appeal, by showing the world what the country does best and the areas in which it excels. And achieving excellence requires ingenuity and creativity.
