Congress created Brand USA in 2010 to work with the travel industry on the first worldwide marketing campaign to promote the United States. DiscoverAmerica.com is one result.

According to Ad Age, Brand USA hired JWT to help promote America.

Fox News says that funding for the estimated $200 million campaign comes not from the government, but from the private sector and the Electronic System for Travel Authorization, which charges $14 to visitors traveling to the U.S. from countries that do not require visas.

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.
