I’m Sorry, Mr. Big’s In A Meeting. Can I Take A Message?

Ad Guy #1: Hey, I know. Let’s meet. Then we can spend two hours making doodles while looking busy.
Ad Guy #2: Excellent!

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.
