The sites above was where I started to research into facts and stats surrounding the creative industries. From this I mapped out a few points of interest. However the data that I found that would be most relevant was on the UNESCO website which had stats about the creative industry in the UK.
There is no stats for the year 2017 as they had not been collated yet, the latest ones that I could use where taken from 2016, with a compassion going back to 2010. There is a massive grown from 2010 of 44.8% with a four times the rate growth to other industries such as the motor industry.
Now that I had the data, it was time to think about how I want to show this visually.
