Putting Your Ads Where The Money Is

I was a fan of Robert Shaw West, when he was running West + Vaughn, the Durham, NC hot shop. In 2001, West and some of his West + Vaughn cohorts refashioned themselves into The Republik, also in Durham. The small shop’s big point of difference is the fact that they tie their compensation to performance.

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.
