For 2017 Cannes Lions, Adobe and Wunderman teamed up to create ‘data portraits’ of industry leaders and influencers who best represent the mix of creativity and data. We handpicked eleven people and paired them with eleven artists, whom we challenged with creating a portrait while incorporating publicly available data that we’ve gathered for them about each person. None of the artists had done anything like this before, so it was interesting to watch how each of them approached it. 

The results were incredible. Eleven artists. Eleven styles. Eleven points of view. If you attended Cannes Lions, you might have noticed them as large banners on totem posts along the Promenade, wild postings inside the Palais, or on social media. If you didn't, you can also enjoy them instantly here:
