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. Someone should conduct a study on what other agency partners think of planners.

  2. Good stuff, thanks for sharing. I’d be interested in knowing what clients first think of planning when they get introduced to it — real value or more ad biz mumbo-jumbo?
