The Avocado Agency

Adweek reports that Dentsu’s Colby and Partners has added two avocado-promoting clients to its roster–the Hass Avocado Board and the Chilean Avocado Importers Association. The Santa Monica shop already has an eight-year relationship with the California Avocado Commission, an account it retains.

It’s right and good that Colby could leverage its experience on the thick-skinned fruit to add business without a review. Normally, the old conflict-of-interest flag would be thrown. In this case, all organizations want the same thing–consumers united in their passion for avocados.

About David Burn

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. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
