The AdAge released its annual Creativity 50 list. It's a survey of the year's most influential creative figures and a testament to how turbulent times can be a powerful muse.
Terry Crews definitely had a turbulent year as he came forward about sexual assault. He has been strong and courageous in speaking out, so it's no surprise that he made the Creativity 50 list. What may surprise people, however, is that he actually illustrated the cover.
