The truth is, Dayne Hanna is originally from New York. Our creative director is from Denver. Many of our creatives have migrated from places like Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego, Houston.
Why?
Becasue here we water-ski at lunch. We leave our cars unlocked, And, at most, we wear ties once a month. North Idaho is all the things Madsion Avenue wastes half its day dreaming about. So, we’re content to spend our days coming up with big ideas for relatively small clients.
Of course, at our second location on the mean streets of Spokane, we HAVE come fact-to-face with a parking meter. But therapy is helping.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
