I’m Doug Brown, a copywriter at birth. My career in advertising and branding got its start on the floor of a cheap hotel room in Hong Kong in 1986. You guessed it: Cutting and pasting ads for my first portfolio!
Life since then has seen me working in Asia and Canada as an ad agency creative director, manager and owner.
Now based in Victoria, BC, I work as a brand strategist through my business Brand Intervention.
In May 2014, I launched Blended with my partner Russ Mounsey and a dream team of strategic and creative conspirators.
In our hyper-connected, consumer-driven new marketing universe, where brands are made or broken in the time it takes a customer to make a video and post it, the stakes have never been higher. This blog will point to those brands that could use an urgent injection of common sense, as well as the ones who are being catapulted into the stratosphere by making all the right moves.
And there will be some other nonsense thrown in there too.
