Ads, Overview (Home):

B in Nice zoomed

Hi, welcome to my painstakingly re-created vintage 2010 website.  (Emphasis on pain.) Or maybe I just haven’t had time to think about new one since then. Bio, short version:

  • Tapped to write Dove Campaign for Real Beauty print ad series
  • Progressed at four leading ad agencies on two continents
  • Previously attended top-tier business school, where I learned a superfluity of mind-numbing words, then surprisingly ran in the opposite direction to write ads.

“Who cares?” you say. You, hopefully, when you benefit from my rare blend of investment, business and creative experience. Just reach out to — or check out LinkedIn or freak out on my Facebook page. (Scroll down for quick cross-section of work, or see Categories at left.)

A quick note from JWT’s (future-at-the-time) Global CD for Unilever:

“Barry is a unique talent. He can do great things on tough briefs with almost no means. An ideas man. Easy-going and a pleasure to work with. Sly wit. Enormous motivation.” 


Print:  Dove “Real Beauty” campaign, Asia — The “intense” challenge referenced by Ogilvy Regional CD for Unilever Asia (at left, in Highly Recommended, among other humbling accolades). You can see four more Dove ads at left in 0.0 Print (General): Dovedove-dark-skin-issue-b.jpg
