I’m an award-winning (aren’t we all) creative director/writer best known for writing the Twitter feed @leeclowsbeard. Over two decades of experience that actually matters, helping launch startups (brand voice, naming, brand platforms, etc.) and reinvigorating big brands. To the amazement of account service folks far and wide, clients love me.

I believe in fighting the proliferation of mediocrity. That there is no metric for blowing people’s minds. That making a logo 10% bigger won’t help a message that’s 50% irrelevant. That baby steps are for babies, not brands. That you can never become the person, agency or brand you wish to be by doing the type of work you wished you never had to do. And that failure hurts less than regret.

Short: I make the complex compelling and the simple sublime.
Medium: I make things better – the strategy, creative, process, results, steaks, etc. Have laptop, will travel. Have family, will move. Looking to help smart people (agency) help other smart people (clients) act, sound and appear brilliant.
Long: There is no long. I’m in advertising.

Work

Much of my work these days is covered by NDAs. And since I like being both honest and lawsuit-free, I’ve chosen to instead offer this sampling of (mostly) past work. Collectively, it proves that, from the neighborhood pizza joint to the world’s largest retailer, no brand need ever be considered boring. Or ignored. Or not making money hand over fist. Apropos of everything, many of these examples include brand voices I developed. And if you’re looking for a particular type (media, industry, etc.) of work that you don’t see here, give me a shout. There isn’t much I haven’t done.
