About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. 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. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.

    Sun was dead in my company until a bunch of Sun’s blogs starting being floated around – to challenge our thinking. Could an ad campaign have done that? I really doubt it. Folks are still suspicious of ads, but the defenses are down around authentic blogs. And to their credit, Sun’s excel at authenticity.
