This year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, we were fortunate to have not one, but two top-tier illustrators on hand as part of the Ketchum delegation. Our post’s featured artist, Yasmine Cordes, is a director of business development based in our Berlin, Germany office. Yasmine won the opportunity to represent Ketchum at Cannes with her pitch to visually depict the festival through an artist’s eyes. The other visual artist in our delegation was none other than our Global CEO, Rob Flaherty. Aside from her daily sketches, Yasmine had the pleasure of partnering with Rob to create some wonderful illustrations based on takeaways from the festival. Below are a few highlights of Yasmine and Rob’s graphic recording work during Cannes. Click any image below to enlarge.
