In February 2013, we were super stoked to have the Co-founder and Head of Design at Xero, Philip Fierlinger presented on the global theme of “Money”.
Philip shared insights from his experiences reshaping the UX of money at Xero, the popular cloud accounting software. Xero is at the forefront of a whole new generation of financial apps that are dramatically changing the way people perceive and interact with their money.
“The magic doesn’t live in your computer or your keyboard. It lives in your ability to manipulate the tools that you have at your discposal to reach what you’re imagining in your mind.”
For our first global theme of 2013 “Happiness,” we had advertising and innovation agency Running with Scissors shared with us their story, learnings and creative insights. Founders Friday O’Flaherty and Andy Mitchell talked with us about finding happiness through the democratisation of creativity.

A CreativeMornings Month On “Money”
The theme was selected by our Zurich host, Daniel Frei. A few speakers from our 40+ participating cities include Jessica Jackley (Kiva), Ellen Chisa & Nikki Lee (Awesome Foundation) and Kim Baffi & Jason Pierce (Goodby, Silverstein & Partners).
We’re lucky to partner with organizations that not only support, but participate in our global conversations.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fine artist, illustrator, designer, art director, or entrepreneur – if you’re trying to make a living doing what you love, you’ve likely faced the difficult question of how to value your work. Squarespace is excited to explore a global conversation on money this month in cooperation with CreativeMornings.
