Consulting Is Cool

Josh Spear dot com: Over the past year, I ‘ve been overwhelmed by emails and calls asking for my opinion on brands, products, design, etc. Several large companies, that will remain nameless (for now), have sought me out for my thoughts on how to beef up both their image, and their product line. As a result, I’ve been involved directly with a variety of brands in a very short time, helping to launch startups, as well as addressing problems in already well established and successful lifestyle companies–who were looking for a leg up in their industry. In response to this demand, I’m proud to publicly announce that I am launching my own consulting agency.
Josh Spear (not to be confused with Josh Rubin) is 21 years young. He is a part time student at University of Colorado at Boulder but has a very hard time staying still. He plans on moving somewhere new and exciting soon…London? Tokyo? No doubt both eventually. He’s a climber, writer, designer, trend spotter, and a DJ.
Thanks to PSFK for the pointer.

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.

    By the way, this post is not an ad. I may put something in front of you that looks like an endorsement, but I wouldn’t be too quick to judge. I’m looking for reaction (thanks for yours). That’s why we have open comments.
    Also, when I do endorse something or someone outright, I make a point to clearly state my opinion. Picking up a story on the other hand is a different beast. When I pick something up, I’m saying, “Hey, look at this!”
