Advertising and innovation agency Running with Scissors shares their story, learnings and creative insights.

In 2009 Running with Scissors celebrated its first anniversary with a “What colour is your happiness” party. Three and half years later they continue to find enjoyment through imagination, diversity and belief. Founders Friday O’Flaherty and Andy Mitchell will talk with us about finding happiness through the democratisation of creativity.

About the speaker

Running with Scissors is an advertising and innovation agency that believes anything is possible. As well as creating advertising they apply imagination in areas that don’t usually get creative attention.

Friday O'Flaherty, Boss 1 of 2, and the weaver of ideas. Friday founded the agency with Andy. He is skilled at taking the thread of a concept and turning it into a fully fledged garment. He lives to make a difference and his constant curiosity and penchant to question coaxes out good ideas that have been cleverly hidden. Friday has local and international experience, working in marketing client side and across multiple sectors in both graphic design and advertising. He also worked as an Air Traffic Controller, which probably explains his acute attention to detail.

Andy Mitchell, Boss 2 of 2, and captain of industry. Andy founded the agency with Friday. He’s fond of function and happiest when the world is logically expressed in a nice chart. He’s got a hardcore marketing background in the UK and NZ, working deeply in Field Marketing, Experience Marketing, Retail Marketing and Sales Promotion.
