The Direct Route To Creative Hell

Retire This Year!

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.

    I want to see Bob Bly and Kevin Roberts on non-Celebrity Deathmatch.

  2. Yes! That’s advertainment.
    My money’s on Roberts in the first.
