On 18th and 19th November, Spindle attended the London stop of Le Book’s celebrated CONNECTIONS trade show, a globetrotting creative network with stops in Paris, New York, London, Berlin, and other locations across the globe.

Starting as a highly-designed reference book for the creative community in Paris, Le Book has since grown into an international creative business bible, with a network of tens of thousands of brands and advertising agencies. It’s a veritable gallery of inspiration, creativity, forward thinking, and the virtual powerhouse have taken their show on the road with their CONNECTIONS events. Showcasing the best in image creation through two-day networking events, CONNECTIONS is a buzzing environment for unravelling creativity – here are the top five creatives we met that really got us excited.

1. Loft Studios

Loft Studios is a boutique studio complex situated in west London, one of Spindle’s favourite spots. Taking for its home a renovated warehouse, Loft Studios provides six fully-serviced studios from gorgeous airy indoor spaces to a private off-street courtyard bounded by high walls – we’re in love.

4. Axel Morin @ Frenzy

Axel Morin, a photographer working with Frenzy Paris, is one man we were so excited to get on our radar. His style is distinctive, urban, always on the cutting edge, and we love his passion for what he does. You can get lost in Morin’s work – and you won’t want to find your way out again.

5. Wild London

Last up is Wild London, a model management agency working to connect their clients with the perfect fashion model or media influencer to fit their audience. The faces they represent are diverse, distinctive, and drop-dead gorgeous, and we love their emphasis on women’s strength.
