Work in 2071: a creative adventure

Last Updated: 02 Nov 2021

Working life is changing. Our world is upside down, everyone has questions about what follows – and, more importantly, everyone wants a say. 

But we’re not interested in the here and now – we want to broaden that brief and think about the world of work in years and years. So we asked four creatives to time-travel (literally or metaphorically) 50 years into the future and report back what they find. 

Campaign and Huawei UK asked these talented individuals to share their visions for the future of work in 2071. And to help with their eye-catching, inspiring images and videos they had the use of the Huawei MateView – a new kick-ass, future-first monitor. 

This is how Joe Joiner, our final creative to be featured in this four-part series, sees the world of work in 50 years. 

Joiner is a multi-disciplined designer/art director, originally from East London who spins quite a few different plates.

He is the director of fashion consultancy Area Gen, creative director of Bricks Magazine, associate lecturer at Chelsea College of Art, owns a product design studio Public House and operates independently working on commissions and for clients across a wide range of industries. His clients or collaborators include Sony Music, Nike and Sky Arts.

Head to Campaign now to view Joe’s thought-provoking animation – and be inspired by his radical vision of the future. And check out the HUAWEI MateView, too.
