The New CreativeMornings.com
It’s been a little over a year since our Kickstarter when we were humbled by the response from our 1200 backers. Today, we’re launching our new site.
We couldn’t have done it without you, our community, and are now excited to share with you this new home for the CreativeMornings world. Now at nearly sixty chapters featuring speakers from Milton Glaser and Seth Godin to Jessica Hische and Erik Spiekermann, we never could have imagined what CreativeMornings has become.
Built by Brooklyn-based Oak Studios and—in true CM spirit—translated by chapter organizers, the new website features:
- A full, searchable, sortable archive of every CreativeMornings talk
- Dedicated chapter sections to stay up to date with your local event
- The ability to live tag quotes from a video, post comments, save talks to watch later and ♥ favorite videos
- A “People” section filled with attendee profiles from around the world Translated versions of the site in ten languages!
Photographer, activist, and urbanist Patrick Reynolds treated our earlybirds to a passionate talk about “Unf**king Auckland”, and the transport revolution the city is currently experiencing. It was a fascinating talk filled with stirring facts and figures, as well a whistlestop tour through Reynolds diverse career.

CreativeMornings /Auckland with Patrick Reynolds
Friday 30 August, 8:00am - 9:30am
With the CreativeMornings team temporarily warming its cockles in the Britomart precinct, this month’s Creative Mornings theme couldn’t fit us any better. It’s Urbanism, and it’s set to give a unique glimpse into all aspects of how we interact with our built environment. As such, we are thrilled to introduce New Zealand’s foremost photographer of architecture – Patrick Reynolds.
Patrick is probably best known for his exceptional architectural and interior photographs that appear in publications such as Urbis and Vogue Living. However over the past 20 years he has developed a highly successful parallel career as a leading photographer within New Zealand contemporary visual arts, with a particular interest in photographing both the built and the unbuilt environment.
From collecting a city’s stories to building collaborative ecosystems, talks from this month will make you think hard about the city you inhabit and the role you play.

At antipodes we believe the heroes of the table should be the food and fine wine so we chose a water source that has a mineral fingerprint subtle enough to refresh but not alter the palate.
We designed a bottle that would sit quietly on the table complementing the dining experience without interfering with the atmosphere of the evening and the design of the decor.
The water source at antipodes is so clean (it’s rainfall from up to 300 years ago!) we are able to bottle it without using any treatments to stabilise or filter it.
All of this combined with our methods of bottling, packaging, recycling, wetland planting and delivery means the entire antipodes process is completely carbon neutral achieving carboNZero certification.
Antipodes is very proud to support CreativeMornings Auckland because everything we do in life requires a creative mind.
August’s Global Theme is “Urbanism”
Last month, 55 CreativeMornings chapters came together for a global conversation around the topic of “Space.” This August, we’re excited to announce our next theme: “Urbanism.” The theme was chosen by our Stockholm organizer Richard Feigin and skilled Stockholm-based illustrator Marcus Gunnar Pettersson created our monthly illustration.
Speakers are delving into all aspects of urbanism and how we interact with our built environment: such as George and Sarah Aye of Greater Good Studio, who use design to solve social problems (Chicago), to Adam Gebrián, well-known “architect who never built anything” (Prague). From collecting a city’s stories to building collaborative ecosystems, talks from this month will make you think hard about the city you inhabit and the role you play.
To find an August event near you, check out creativemornings.com, or follow your local chapter on Twitter. As always, tickets are free and available starting the Monday before the talk.
We’ll see you there!
A compelling and poetic talk by the best dressed man in Auckland. Nat Cheshire from Cheshire Architects presented on this month’s theme of "space". The talk left us excited about their next project…”Auckland”.
Kindly hosted by Britomart Country Club, and proudly brought to you by Curative and Gather & Hunt. With refreshments generously sponsored by Coffee Supreme, Antipodes and breakfast by Whites & Co. Thank you!

Congratulations to Coffee Supreme and Hardhat Design!
Coffee Supreme’s take-out cups were already known in NZ and Australia for being unusual, distinctive and quirky, so while we knew from our re-brand brief that they wanted the brand to ‘grow up’, it was important they didn’t lose their individuality.
CreativeMornings /Auckland with Nat Cheshire, Cheshire Architects
Friday 26 July, 8:00am - 9:30am
Britomart Country Club
The word 'space' can conjure up a lot of different thoughts to different creative people e.g Personal space, airspace, public space, outer space, cyberspace, and the space bar are just a few takes on this theme. This month the CreativeMornings team has decided upon architectural space and we are ecstastic to have Nat Cheshire from Cheshire Architects.
Nat and Pip Cheshire lead a studio of two dozen designers and architects, founded on the master-planning of the Britomart precinct, and hell-bent on transforming architecture and the city.
In the last three years Nat has built twenty projects in Britomart alone, radically transforming nine of Auckland’s most despised city blocks.
In the last year he has led a project to adapt and rehabilitate three hectares of inner-city industrial space, generating the new City Works Depot: a precinct of bearded motorcycle mechanics and elegant, silk-enrobed beauticians.
Nat will present CreativeMornings with the motivations and mechanisms of the Cheshire studio’s latest project, Milse: a back-alley dessert restaurant that conflates old Arabic architecture with digital simulations of parametric math.

July’s Global Theme is “Space”
This June, more than fifty chapters came together to talk about “Food” at CreativeMornings events around the world. This month, we’re excited to announce our next theme: “Space.” The theme was chosen by our Berlin organizer Jürgen Siebert and depicted by talented Berlin-based illustrator Jens Bonnke for our monthly illustration.
From Dan Goods, visual strategist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Los Angeles), to Brad Cloepfil, architect at Allied Works Architecture (Portland), speakers are tackling the topic from a variety of angles. Personal space, airspace, public space, outer space, cyberspace, and the space bar are just a few takes on this theme.
To find a July event near you, check out creativemornings.com, or follow your local chapter on Twitter. As always, tickets are free and available starting the Monday before the talk.
We’ll see you in the morning!
