Hi there, I'm Steve McNamara, an ad guy, and the creator of AdCracker.com and the Creative Director set.
I've been a Creative Director / Copywriter at several multinational ad agencies, including JWT, BBDO, Rapp Worldwide, and once on the client side at Capital One.
The advertising business has taken me around the world, with stops in
Newport Beach, CA
San Diego, CA
Los Angeles, CA
Hong Kong, China
New York, NY
Along the way I've won several international creative awards. And I've worked with many talented Earthlings on campaigns for
Quicken / TurboTax,
Capital One ... and many other companies with cool offices and beautiful receptionists.
My elevator pitch:
I've created, pitched and sold hundreds of millions of dollars of advertising ideas. Advertising ideas expressed in TV commercials, print, and digital media.
Ideas that build brands. Ideas that drive sales.
These days I share what I've learned, and what I continue to learn, at AdCracker.com.
AdCracker publishes the Creative Director multimedia sets - a digital tool to assist the creative process, from writing creative briefs to crafting strategic branding, positioning and direct response communications.
Check it out, especially if you face the same daily challenges I've faced: creating fresh campaign concepts, under deadline, that meet the standards of an international advertising agency.
