Keeping The Economy Afloat

Waterways Council is a public policy organization advocating a modern and well-maintained national system of ports and inland waterways. The group is supported by waterways carriers, shippers, port authorities, shipping associations and waterways advocacy groups from all regions of the country.
Cornel Martin, President/CEO of Waterways Council said, “Our nation’s ports and waterways are vitally important to America’s economic well-being, but they are often out of sight, out of mind, or just not well understood.” This new spot, airing now in Washington, DC, aims to correct that.

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.
