On June 8 in the Samsung District of Milan, Domus Academy and NABA presented the findings of their research study called “Creative Job Trends.” The analysis focused on creative skills, transversal skills, job mobility, the “most followed company,” and what candidates want in a job. The event was moderated by Mauro Meazza, central editor-in-chief at Il Sole 24 Ore, and organized in collaboration with LinkedIn Italia.
The study found that the most highly sought-after creative skills include user experience, product design and development, digital marketing and new media, visual merchandising, sustainable design, graphic design, and animation.
The analysis singles out leadership as the transversal skill most valued in the creative field. It also found that, when looking for a job, candidates place a high priority on a company’s culture and values.
Following this study, representatives from six major brands—Helix, Cisco Systems, Coca-Cola, Armani, Dalani, and Era Zero—were asked to speak about creativity within their company and to interpret some of the results.
With this study, Domus Academy and NABA reaffirm their status as institutional thought leaders within the field of art and design education.
