This event is not for the faint of heart or ears!

Come  hear and absorb Dave Schiff & Alex "Burnie" Burnard, co-creative  directors for Crispin Porter & Bogusky, as they talk about the  creative culture  and environment at CPB that has inspired some of  the best advertising to be produced in recent years winning practically  every major award show in the last two years.

You have never experienced an event like this before nor will ever again.

Dave  and Alex are knock-your-socks-off speakers with a passion for  cultivating creativity in every part of their clients business. Expect  to leave a changed person

For the last nine years Alex Burnard has  lived/worked at Crispin Porter + Bogusky and it's kind of like how he  always imagined advertising should be. At Crispin, he first carved out  a name for himself with his work on the AND1 shoe brand creating the  AND1 Mixtape, and later helping resurrect Latrell Sprewell's pockmarked  career by declaring him the American Dream. Burnard next worked on the  Truth brand – the highly successful anti-smoking campaign – where he  made the "Body Bag" spot that featured real footage of a team of kids  dropping 1200 body bags on the door of Phillip Morris. Burnard's work  for GT Bicycles, Molson beer, the launch of the MINI Cooper, IKEA and  several other clients has left him with a ton of awards from basically  every awards show that exists. More importantly, his work has been  talked about in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, 60 Minutes, ESPN  SportsCenter and countless other media channels. During his time at  CP+B the agency has been named Agency of the Year four times by Ad  Age's Creativity
magazine.

In 2004, Burnard and partner  Dave Schiff were promoted to co-creative directors of the MAXIM  account. Their work involved filing a petition with the Fish and  Wildlife Department to list man on the endangered list, in an effort to  challenge metrosexuality. Today, Burnard is a co-creative director on  the Coca-Cola Zero, ask.com, Shimano and Giro accounts. Burnard also  teaches at the Miami Ad School and has lectured around the world. His  latest project is the creation of Hoopla, a book about Crispin Porter +  Bogusky due later this year.

When Dave Schiff applied for a  copywriting job at Crispin Porter Bogusky, about the only credentials  the fully tattooed former "sales-order taker" for a bicycle company had  for an ad job were an infectious personality and a razor-sharp wit. For  CP+B, that was plenty.

CPB apparently looked the other way  when it hired Dave or “Schiff” as his friend calls him, whose body is  covered in ink, including a tattoo that reads: ``This guy smells  awful.' Did he wear a turtleneck to his job interview?

``I  considered wearing a neck brace,' says Dave. ``I figured not only would  it cover my tattoos but the sympathy I might get would be helpful.'

Dave  doesn’t need much sympathy when it comes to creating work that takes imagination and advertising to an entirely new level. Case in point:  his recent public service ads for Maxim.

“Man is in dire  straits. If you doubt this, just take a look at the guy next to you.  Odds are he’s wearing Puma Peter Pan booties and sipping seductively on  a venti chai tea,” worries David Schiff, associate creative director at  Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Maxim recruited the concerned creatives to  engineer a website dedicated to man’s preservation.

This public  service announcement from Mantropy Control pairs junior-high science book graphics with the wisdom of a Boy Scout manual. The site explores  the relationships between man, fire and speed (explosions), man’s  pansy-leaning tendencies (nail polish), and crucial masculine knowledge  (ninjas).

The petition to list man as an endangered species was  actually filed at the Department of the Interior where secretary Gale  Norton is legally obligated to give it full consideration. But it’s not  looking good for man.

“A few years ago, an environmental group  tried to get a Northwest Indian tribe classified as endangered,” says  Schiff. “They lost a big court battle, with the court ruling that man  could not be endangered because he is domesticated, not a wild animal.  The lawyer who won that case? Gale Norton.” Alissa Walker
