Efficiency Vermont wants Green Mountain staters to buy lots of compact fluorescent bulbs, or CFLs. So much so the advocacy group turned to Burlington agency, Kelliher Samets Volk for a TV, print and interweb campaign called New Bulb In Town.
The goal is to sell 600,000 CFLs in Vermont this year. In other words, one for every resident.

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.
