Twenty Eight Mayflies
We are a new creative collective that will live for just 28 days. Inspired by the Mayfly, we plan to live each day as if it is our last. We will work with energy and ambition as if we will not exist tomorrow, delivering impactful solutions and asking fresh questions that will long outlive us. Embracing our lack of time will liberate us to be honest, make bold decisions and push our ideas further. Beautiful, not comfortable.

We are currently working on briefs for Kraft, Unilever, Google, and Harvester Restaurants. Twenty Eight Mayflies propose to spend our lifetime being digital travellers. We will become ‘alive’ on a different media platform each day, remaining active on that platform for the durance of a Mayfly’s lifespan, playing and experimenting with its potential for creativity.
Kids with Sticks is a creative 5 week pop up agency founded by 10 friends, who met at Hyper Island. Erik Rodin, Katy Jackson, Alex Hunting, Isabella Pipitone, Richard Trovatten, Marco Lemcke, Ben Lynch, Stephen Kavanagh, Alasdair Cumming and Ji-Ho Park.
Sometimes you need a creative director with 30 years industry experience in the room. But there are times you want the young turk who has nothing to loose and everything to prove. We're the mischievous kid who asks uncomfortable questions. Who speaks the truth when wiser folk know to bite their tongue. We haven't been around long enough to learn what isn't possible. We're here to challenge everything you hold dear. Double dare you to climb up that tree.
Being young and inexperienced, makes breaking into any industry more difficult. Fortunately for us, we have an advisory board, The Parents, consisting of world class creatives, strategists, and entrepreneurs that have offered to share their time and advice.
Busy Being Born!
A while ago Bob Dylan said that if you're not busy being born then you're busy dying. We take this pretty seriously because when you're talking creativity, embracing change and trying new things are your roots. If you're not open to new experiences you might as well not even try.
We are Busy Being Born.
