Emergence Creative - It's Time to Make Space!

Josh Edge

MC and Creative Director

Josh Edge is an internationally award-winning Creative Director, creative strategist and writer, who has spent the past 21 years working on some of Australia’s largest (and smallest!) clients, brands and NFPs. He has gathered a few white hairs as President of the Perth Advertising and Design Club over half a decade, which he now credits for giving him the appropriate gravitas to occasionally tutor and judge the next generation of creative talent at universities, TAFE and the Advertising Council’s AWARD School program. He is currently co-Head of Creative at Marketforce with his partner in crime, Rikki Burns, while still partnering on projects with creative, digital and innovation agencies and brands both locally and internationally. In his 5 minutes of free time, he runs @thewaback on Instagram. He also likes to make himself a nuisance in the halls of State and Local Government with representation for creative industries, independent creative businesses, regional development and better opportunities for creative change. He is more of a Cat Guy, but don’t hold that against him.
