Creative Mornings has arrived in Philadelphia.
The monthly breakfast-and-speaker series in more than 70 cities will be run locally by Josh Goldblum, founder of Fishtown creative agency Bluecadet Interactive. Goldblum was chosen among several Philly groups that applied to host Creative Mornings in Philly.
The first event will feature Geekadelphia cofounder Eric Smith talking about “geek courtship” at the Center for Architecture on April 11 during Philly Tech Week. (Smith will also be helping Creative Mornings Philly with social media.)
There’s an entire array of event offerings that many U.S. tech communities aim to have — Ignite, TEDx, Barcamp, Refresh, Tech Meetup and, increasingly, Creative Mornings, the buzzy offering launched first by Brooklyn designer Tina Roth Eisenberg. As Creative Mornings continued to expand, there was a sense among a class of likely attendees who felt Philly was being overlooked.
Here’s a preview of who might speak at the upcoming events, said Goldblum: “We are really hoping to get a broad sampling of talent from a range of fields, so not only our best graphic and interactive designers but we also looking to include chefs, technologists, entrepreneurs, authors, game designers, academics, photographers, artists, etc.”

While Goldblum is running the series, he said these partners also helped bring it to Philly:
- Happy Cog
- Val Head
- Indy Hall
- Cipher Prime
- First Capitol Pictures
- Darin Rownland
