Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 25, 2013
John Boone, an award-winning freelance art/creative director; former founding partner of BooneOakley and current founder of Guns & Kittens will be speaking on December 5 at the The Classic Gateway Theater in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He has freelanced for agencies like Wieden+Kennedy, BBDO-NY, Mullen-Boston, DDB and more. Some of his honors include Time magazine's "Commercial Of The Year," USA Today's "TV Commercial Hall of Fame," Comedy Central’s "World’s Funniest Commercials", and appearing on AMC's "The Pitch."
John's leadership helped BooneOakley win accounts like MTV2, CarMax, NASCAR, State Farm, Ruby Tuesday, Bojangles, and Paramount Parks. He was part of the reason why the agency got named Ad Age's "Southeast Small Agency of The Year" as well as The One Club's "Best of The Digital Decade." Thanks to his creative nature and through the creation of the world's first YouTube website and the blow up of a Ruby Tuesday restaurant during a live web event, John helped BooneOakley establish an international reputation for buzz-worthy innovations.
Guns & Kittens, a creative consultancy, is John’s most recent launch. The name, curious alone, is a perfect ice breaker. The words guns and kittens are extreme opposites which when compared can generate an interesting dangerously cute conversation. The name is promoted creatively through gun-handle coffee mugs, bullet-shaped thumb drives and business cards with a pistol-grip texture. The business is doing great and has great projections. Like John said: "The biggest challenge now, is getting the bullet-shaped thumb drives through airport security."
