Who is Tom Fishurne?
Tom Fishburne in the creator of Marketoonist and Author of "Your Ad Ignored Here".
Tom Fishburne started drawing cartoons on the backs of business cases as a Harvard Business School student.
From an emailed cartoon to coworkers in 2002, Tom’s Marketoonist series has grown by word of mouth to reach a few hundred thousand marketers every week and his cartoons have been featured by the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and The New York Times. His cartoons have appeared on a billboard ad in Times Square, helped win a Guinness World Record, and turned up in a top-secret NSA presentation released by Edward Snowden.
Tom is the founder of Marketoonist, a marketing agency focused on the unique medium of cartoons. Since 2010, they’ve developed marketing campaigns for businesses such as Google, IBM, LinkedIn, and Kronos.
Tom is the author of “Your Ad Ignored Here: Cartoons from 15 Years of Marketing, Business, and Doodling in Meetings.”
Tom gave a TED talk on “The Power of Laughing at Ourselves.”
Tom draws (literally and figuratively) from 20 years in the marketing trenches in the US and Europe. He was Interim Chief Marketing Officer at HotelTonight, Marketing Vice President at Method Products, and worked in brand management for Nestle and General Mills. Tom developed web sites for interactive agency iXL and started his marketing career selling advertising for the first English-language magazine in Prague.
Tom has offered brands an alternative way of communicating differently: his sense of humor and creativity is part of what is happening in the highly competitive space of content marketing. It is therefore natural that for this 2019 edition, Tom Fishburne finds his place among the One to One Biarritz community.
