About Dave Burg
Co-Founder @ Shepherd / a Fixer Company, Austin
Dave Burg is a strategist, creative, and lecturer. He’s led some of the most awarded integrated campaigns in advertising. From Domino’s Pizza, to P&G’s global “Thank You, Mom,” to interactive Super Bowl campaigns for Coca-Cola, to helping Fruit of the Loom become Walmart’s preferred apparel partner with “The Professional’s Collection.” Dave held director roles at Wieden+Kennedy, Crispin, Porter+Bogusky, and R/GA prior to co-founding Shepherd.
It’s chaotic times in the marketing world and this much is clear: Clients need to do a lot more with less. They need help fixing things. So I’m devoting all my time to building just that, “A Fixer Company.”
We’ve got offices in Austin and Portland (keeping it double weird).
Formerly a strategy lead at:
CP+B ⚡️ W+K ⚡️ R/GA
I believe in things:
-Shine a bright light on the truth.
-Strive to make things crazy interesting.
-Have fun doing it.
Also, I may or may not be a Bigfoot witness.
YOU’RE CREATIVE. YOU’RE DIFFERENT. YOU DREAM OF WHAT COULD BE.
You don’t see the world like most people. As a kid, you saw shapes of dogs, birds, monsters—while your friends saw only fluffy clouds. Sometimes being different made you feel cursed when, really, you’re blessed. It’s the creative minds that saw new things, invented tools, made discoveries. Since the dawn of history, it’s dreamers who’ve changed the world.
So, yes, you’re creative. You’re a dreamer. You’re resourceful. Because you found us, right? You did some research and asked around. Then, likely someone in the industry suggested you Google “Best Advertising Schools” to find Miami Ad School, one of the leading advertising schools in the world.
Miami Ad School: No mumbo jumbo. Hands-on, real life-like assignments, and feedback on your work from people who rock it in the real world.
Miami Ad School’s global network of schools is hardly a mom & pop operation, but there is a Mom & Dad of Miami Ad School. Ron & Pippa Seichrist gave birth to this innovative concept in 1993 and are still very involved in the constant evolution of the school. We partner with the industry to create the most unique portfolio program possible that reflects the latest needs of global advertising agencies and brands. The atmosphere is a little kooky, but when you walk into a Miami Ad School anywhere in the world, you’ll feel at home. You’ll be surrounded by friendly people gathered in small groups brainstorming ideas or concepting over a game of ping pong. Chances are you’ll also be met by a happy wagging dog. As a student, you enter a very large, close family and graduate over prepared with a great portfolio and global, real-world experience.
