About me

Doug is the Chief Creative Officer and Vice President at Hunt Adkins. Prior to HA Doug was a copywriter at Bozell, Inc., also in Minneapolis, where he worked on such accounts as Chrysler-Plymouth, 3M, Valvoline Instant Oil Change, The United Way, Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Twins. Doug studied English at the University of Minnesota, but became intensely interested in advertising soon after running out of food.

In addition to winning a cornucopian superabundance of advertising awards, Doug is also famous for his invention of the word cornucopian and for directing prose at the agency with the best copywriting in the country. In his spare time, Doug likes to write ads.

Ad Week once named Doug as one of the “hottest” copywriters in the country. Doug was briefly thrilled by this honor until learning that it was a reference to his writing skills and not his animal magnetism.
