ABOUT

David Bradley has worked in advertising for 19 years as a distinguished writer and Creative Director.  He has been associated with the following agencies: Martin/Williams in Minneapolis, Chiat/Day in Los Angeles and New York, Kirshenbaum & Bond, Ammirati & Puris and Ogilvy in New York. 

In advertising, David has won many of the industry’s most prestigious awards. His work has been featured in The One Show, Communication Arts, Archive, the Magazine Publishers Association, The Kellys, the Clios and the New York Art Directors Club. He has worked for clients that run the gamete of popular culture: from Charles David shoes and GUESS? to Nissan, MasterCard and Dom Perignon, and IBM. His commercials for IBM and Lotus have been featured at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC as well as the Museum of Radio & Television.

David is recognized as an accomplished poet. His books include: Sprig (1990), Bud (1991), 
A Maggid (1995), and Jesus in Hell (1997). After reading Bud, Pulitzer-prize-winning Annie Dillard wrote, “It’s a wonderful book, poetry and art both. I’m honored to have a part, a small part, in your fine poem.”

Several of his drawings and paintings may be found in private collections in the United States and Europe. He has received both secular and religious commissions, and is presently undertaking panels for the sanctuary of the Most Precious Blood Church in New York City.  

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

1. Hired as a creative director with Max Jerome on Disney after cracking how to use Annie Leibovitz for Disney. David’s idea. This became the first step toward consolidating Disney at mcgarry bowen. Disney’s agreed to do 15 more Annie images to eventually become a coffee table book.  Presently, they’re shooting round two through the summer and fall.

2. Grew the national and regional accounts of Verizon broadband to include FiOS, increasing spending from $3.5 million to $13.5 million. 

3. Inspired the look and tone of the Charles Schwab TV campaign, which helped Euro win the national assignment.

4. At Ogilvy, ran IBM software for Steve Hayden and Chris Wall. Software representing 30% of IBM’s $90 billion revenue.  Also worked on Goldman Sachs and Ameritrade. Third agency to be at that CA does a feature on. Stein Robaire Helm and Lambesis being the others.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

David Mark Bradley (b. 1963) is an artist and poet from the United States. In drawings, paintings and words, David’s work asks questions about ancient myths, storytelling, modern corporate culture, diabetes, the food industry, and clouds. What is truth versus propaganda? And how do you represent this when everything (from quantum to macro) is always moving?

Kabbalah, Catholic mysticism, reincarnation, clouds & dreams are inspirations.
