MSc Creative Advertising


The Festival of Creativity is proud to present Gerry Farrell, the multi award winning copywriter, ex creative director of the legendary Leith Agency and, arguably, Scotland’s leading adman. Gerry will talk about his new company’s fliposophy (feel less immediately pessimistic) why they always takes a sunny outlook whenever they tackle a creative brief and how a determined playfulness leads to outstanding and unexpected creative work. Always entertaining, sometimes controversial, a talk with Gerry is not to be missed.
