Devine Clients

I like the way Chris Brogan modestly describes himself as a “typist.” That’s basically what I do, though not to the same extent as Chris. The technology has certainly changed—I haven’t used an actual typewriter in decades—but thankfully the keyboard is still the same since I learned how to type.

In addition to a lot of typing, I’ve done marketing copywriting and creative development for a wide variety of businesses since 1990. Along the way I’ve tried to keep some notes—if not always samples—about each client. (Advertising isn’t my only type of writing experience, but I’ll save the other stuff for another time.)

In the interest of name-dropping, here’s a very-close-but-not-quite-comprehensive roster of brands and clients with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working. At least the ones I can remember. (Listed alphabetically by industry category, then company name.) There’s always room for another!
