Jaqueline Bourke

As Head of Strategy and Insights for EMEA and APAC at Getty Images, Jacqueline identifies emerging visual and social trends that better connect customers to brands. Using Getty Images’ unique access to customer buying patterns and invaluable client feedback from around the globe, she researches how brands evolve their use of imagery to fully engage audiences - informing the creative direction for Getty Images’ contributors and customers. A former Director of Art and Photography, Jacqueline is a media communications graduate with 17+ years’ experience working in academia, advertising and media; developing deep insight into how images work in advertising, and the key factors in creating powerful imagery for compelling campaigns.

Jacqueline will take us through some highlights from Getty Images’ annual visual trends report, Creative in Focus, an in-depth look at three themes set to influence consumers in the coming year. She will reveal why art history is having a Second Renaissance, where perfection meets scepticism through Conceptual Realism, and how advertising is casting off dated male stereotypes with Masculinity Undone.
