I would like to believe that—in common with the late and sadly missed Gonzo journalist, advertising freak, and man of letters, Hunter S. Thompson—‘Together, we shall drive the rats from the tundra.’ Who knows… Between Know More Media and its readers, this lofty ambition may come to fruition!
Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2006
Know More Media, an online publisher of business information and news, has hired advertising expert George Parker to write knowledgeable content for a new blog on advertising, AdHurl.com. AdHurl.com will provide a lively discussion centered around the advertising industry, including topics such as critiques of advertisements, advertising trends, agency news, making an advertising pitch, and developing an advertising strategy.
George Parker has more than 30 years of experience working for major agencies and clients in New York, San Francisco, London, Stockholm, and Paris. George has been an Art Director, Creative Writer, Creative Director, and Creative Consultant to both agencies and clients in the advertising industry. He co-authored “In Celebration of Print” with Hubert Graf for Rizzoli Publishing, and he is currently working on a new book called “Entrepreneurial Advertising” to be published by Entrepreneur Magazine & Entrepreneur Press later in 2006. Parker has written for Ad Age, Departures, New York Times, and also maintains an advertising-related blog called Adscam.
On the topic of authoring AdHurl.com, George Parker stated, “I would like to believe that—in common with the late and sadly missed Gonzo journalist, advertising freak, and man of letters, Hunter S. Thompson—‘Together, we shall drive the rats from the tundra.’ Who knows… Between Know More Media and its readers, this lofty ambition may come to fruition!”
George Parker was initially trained as an Art Director at the Royal College of Art in London, then moved into the writing and creative side of the business, eventually settling in as a Creative Consultant. His clients have included American Express, SwissAir, Jaguar, Volvo, IBM, Apple, Proctor & Gamble, Intel, Microsoft, and Oracle. Mr. Parker is the recipient of various creative awards, including two Gold & two Silver Lions, Cannes International Film Festival; eleven Clio's, along with membership of the International Hall of Fame; the David Ogilvy Award for best North America Campaign of 1997; and Gold EFFIE 1997.
“We are extremely happy to have George author our AdHurl.com blog,” said Dan Smith, VP of Publishing for Know More Media. “He brings incredible advertising experience and knowledge, as well as his singular, witty—and yes, often acerbic—writing voice. We love having him in our business blog network. Readers will find that tuning in to AdHurl.com will be both educational and entertaining.”
“The advertising industry is often overloaded with stuffy executives and layers of bureaucracy,” said Tim Stay, Chief Innovations Officer of Know More Media. “With AdHurl.com, we wanted a blog that would take an honest, fresh, hard-hitting, and straightforward look at the advertising industry. George Parker is the perfect fit for AdHurl.com.”
