Direct From NOLA

”Creative kids used to start bands. They’re starting brands now.” -Rob Walker

Polygamous Wedding, the innaugural one-day “connection planning” conference that went off last month in New Orleans is now offering some of the presentations on their blog. The offering above is from Robbie Vitrano, principal of New Orleans’ agency, Trumpet.
The presentation I’m nost interested in learning more about is from Rob Walker of The New York Times Magazine. Word is he tapped a 1939 Harvard Business Review article that presents many of the same issues we’re grappling with today. I have an email in to Rob to find out more about it.

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 now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
