Agencies In Strange Places: Ninth In A Series

Think Memphis–blues, barbeque, the mighty Mississippi and Elvis. Think Memphis again–Thompson & Company.

Thompson & Company will be a firm that grows by encouraging and developing the personal genius of every employee, to the benefit of every client.

I’d like to show you some of the agency’s print work, but they protect it with Flash. I don’t much like Flash, but I do like smart headlines. Like this one for Georgia Boot, “Handles Anything Farm Life Can Dish Out. Even The Stuff Cows Dish Out.”



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. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
