Jim Morris

BIO: Jim Morris, The Communicaterer, is a hardwired contrarimudgeon who loves advertising, the persuasive art, and hates advertising, the business. He holds no interest in the blahgosphere.

As both copywriter and creative director, Jim Morris has been creating evocative, highly human, award-winning advertising for twenty five years.

Armed with a degree in philosophy and an unnatural fondness for hippos, Jim served time, full time, at several ad agencies. For most of the past 15 years He has enjoyed a thriving freelance copywriting business. Jim also taught copywriting at Columbia College for 12 years and wrote a monthly column for Screen for five years.

Jim’s accomplishments include authoring dozens of successful taglines (his specialty), including“We are Flintstones Kids, Ten Million Strong and Growing,” the cornerstone of one of the longest-running campaigns of the last half century; and creating an international branding campaign for Lions Clubs International, from tagline through TV.
