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.


  1. I feel it is unethical and hurtful to the Design profession to ask for free work.

  2. That’s understandable, Michael. But I don’t believe it’s limited to professionals. I imagine this is more of a student competition. I also imagine the promoters just want to let music fans participate in the process. Fans are funny that way.

  3. Michael,
    It is hurtful to students, too. But, damn, what more can they do after they’ve raped your mind anyway. Oh i know, make visual clues to you body. Like tongueing cherry candies while you sit across the desk from them. Stuff with bananas, etc.
    I think you get the visual communications subjects.

  4. was that last post written in english?

  5. Corrections says:

    “?” at the end of sentences that ask a question. What’s the exact ruling on expressing doubt? Is there always to be a question mark? In the conversational tone am I allowed to use incomplete sentences? In between thoughts with stops, not short pauses, should I use elipsises(pl. ?)?
    I will also try to type better and hand in better work by slowing down.
    My “fast.”
    (That is an incomplete sentence, but I claim poetic license after studying the rules on those rows.)
    My mac keyboard has such a soft touch. That is just an excuse, of course. I think it is a good one. Bravo to anyone who can type quickly on these things and not make errors like I make. My first adventures in typing were on a manual typewriter. The first nine weeks my grades were 85%. On the IBM Selectric I earned 89% in the second nine weeks of winter 1974. For what it is worth, I earned a 93% in Algebra II/Trigonometry and a 96% in German I. You can check that against my permanent record.
    Would you like me to turn in my misspelled words written 10, 20, or 30 times each?
    I know:
    command ;
    will underline my mistakes in dotted red lines.

  6. That post totally made my face melt. It’s all over my hands.

    I scooped some water out of a pond and found my face in my hands, too. However, it slowly seeped out of my hands, and then I heard some drops echo in my heart. I got all inside out and confused, but I that moment lived on.
