Freakin’ AdFreak

Okay, I can retire now. You too Steve Hall.
Mainstream media has just entered the advertising blog space. Adweek has wisely decided to not let us “amateurs” have all the fun. Now they have their own blog. Interestingly, the tone of this new blog matches the zany name and whimsical logo (quite a departure for this trade journal). I bet the contributing writers are going to relish this gloves off approach. Although, I imagine it will be hard for them to go back-and-forth between blogging and the journalism of old. I guess we shall see.



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.
