Sullivan Higdon & Sink: Newsroom - Advertising Icon Mark Fenske to Appear on American Copywriter Podcast

www.wehatesheep.com [cached]

American Copywriter (http://americancopywriter.typepad.com/blog/), the first podcast dedicated to the discussion of anything that even remotely relates to advertising, which is pretty much everything, announced today that its 13th episode will feature a very special guest, legendary creative director Mark Fenske. The podcast will be available for downloading on Friday, June 3.

Fenske is currently associate professor at the VCU Ad Center in Richmond, Va. Previously, he was the founder and creative director of the Bomb Factory advertising agency. He's also well-known for his creative work at Wieden & Kennedy and N.W. Ayer & Partners. In addition, Fenske has also provided voice-over talent for Apple, Coca-Cola, Nissan, American Express and Sears.
Fenske is also an accomplished director, having helped create music videos for the Indigo Girls, Bruce Hornsby, John Hiatt and Van Halen.

Mark Fenske currently teaches in the graduate program in advertising at Virginia Commonwealth University and he has a fascinating take on the creative process and what it takes to make great ads. Mark is also a highly celebrated Madison Avenue creative director. He does voice overs - his droll, Midwestern twang has generated a lot of work and copycats. You currently hear him on Cheezit spots... Cheezit - get your own box. And Mark even won an MTV video award in the mid-nineties for directing Van Halens music video Right Now.

I recently came across a podcast of an interview done with Mark by two copywriters at Sullivan, Higdon and Sink. Mark was describing some of the "truths" he teaches his students including this little gem:

I have several predictions: First, Mark will craft ads that will be creatively brilliant and will win at least two Lions at the '07 Cannes.

Mark Fenske will write the forward to Minnick's book. Do you think anybody on Coke's board of directors has read Fenske's 14 anti-laws of advertising?
AdWeek via Yahoo via Adpulp has the full story on Fenske's return to Wieden. I found this exchange between Wieden and Fenske interesting:
"He (Wieden) asked me (Fenske) what I'd been doing, and I told him I've been working freelance gigs; it's just that no one can sell what I write. He looked at me and said, 'I can."
