Ernest Hemingway said, “The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof shit detector.” I agree. All great advertising begins with being honest — to yourself, to your clients, to your customers.

“I have hired Dan on several occasions for copywriting and always been pleased with the results. He is a good collaborator and hits the target without the need for a lot back-and-forth. He has written both informative copy and creative headlines for us and is versatile enough to pull off both with great results.”

Brian BarrusPresident & Creative Director at Studio Element


“Why should I write a recommendation for Dan Brown, when we might be up for the same job some day? Maybe it's because I know from experience that Dan is a talented CD/copywriter who consistently does excellent creative work. Maybe it's because I know he's a fine writer who can work in any medium. And maybe it's because I know he's also a good person to work with - committed, caring, and fun. I guess it really doesn't matter why I recommend Dan...only that I recommend him whole-heartedly. Unless he gets the job we're both up for.”

Doug GoranssonCW/CD at Agency to Be Named Later

His thinking is clear, his creativity is vibrant, and his execution is always on-time and on-budget. If you're planning a marketing campaign and would like to access top-level talent at affordable rates, you should call Dan Brown.”

David FrancoeurChief Marketing Officer at Genscape, Inc.


“Although it has been a few years since I have worked with Dan, viewing his work brings a smile to my face as it reminds me of his incredible talent and sense of humor. Dan is indeed a rare talent that gets inside the essence of the human spirit and it shows well in his work. Oh, and he is really great guy on top of it.”

Rick EnderCreative Director at Frederick Swanston


“I still don't understand all those meshuggeneh ideas my Danny comes up with or why on earth people pay him and give him awards for doing it. I just wish he could spare a little time every week to call. A few seconds…is that too much to ask for? Just to make sure I’m still breathing.”
