Barrie Inc. Coming Soon

Bob Barrie is leaving Fallon to form his own firm.
He chose not to to give Adweek many details, but indicated the move is not iminent, and that his head and his heart are still at Fallon, an agency he’s been with for 20 years.
Barrie, an art director, is notable in the industry for not taking on creative director duties despite offers to do so. Instead he’s stayed true to his passion and close to the work. The results speak for themselves. For instance, his work for United Airlines has no present day equal.

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. Wow. Barrie and Stuart D’Rozario. I don’t know Mr. Barrie personally, but his work speaks for itself. I HAVE worked with Stuart, and can tell you that he’s not only among the most talented copywriters out there, he’s also among the nicest.
    One point: I think you have to give Todd Riddle some significant credit for the United campaign.
