Spotlight On NW Creative: Magneto Brand Advertising

Why do ad agencies have self-promo Web sites? To show off their skills and gain new business. Duh. Sadly, most shops leave off at the portfolio, proprietary process and case study pages when what people really want to know is what kind of people work there.

Thankfully, Magneto Brand Advertising in Portland helps visitors to its site, or blog as the case may be, get a feel for the place.
The agency’s Twitter page, manned by @Buzz_Winkle does too.

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.

    There’s even more steps once you get inside if you want to go up to see Craig or Mike!
