I Am Cow, Hear Me Moo

It’s been 13 years since I last lived in Portland. So, I have some catching up to do. Who works where? What accounts are most notable? Where is there an opportunity for a guy like me? These are the kinds of questions I seek answers to.
Which leads me to Portland Ad Fed’s well put together site. I’ve been using it to get up to speed on things. Like this print ad from Livengood Nowack, for instance:
Thanks to California’s cheese industry, we already know happy cows make better milk. But this is Oregon. Happy cows won’t suffice here. No, we need the milk of militant cattle to soak up our granola.

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.
