Adventures in Advertising is a blog and editorial cartoon column created by Tom DelMundo: Art Director, Copywriter, Designer and Futurist.
After winning numerous advertising awards, including the Nobel Prize for Art Direction,
Tom found the pursuit of advertising as a serious profession inevitable.
Tom joined DDB in 1993, as an Art Director/Copywriter. There he co-created Amtrak’s humorous
“Wouldn’t You Rather Be In One Of Our Cars?”campaign. As well as producing memorable work
for the New York Lottery, Crunch Fitness, Bermuda Tourism, and Irish Tourism.
Tom was a pioneer in the interactive world, receiving one of the first Interactive Clio awards in 1996,
for Ragu’s “Mama’s Cuccina” (www.eat.com.)
In 1998, Tom moved to San Francisco to join the legendary creative hothouse that was Red Sky Interactive,
where he created evolutionary interactive work as and winning a One Show pencil for Sutter Home’s MoodMaker.
In 2001 Tom took the reigns as Creative Director at AdWorks Hawaii, working on such accounts as AT&T Wireless,
Aston Resorts and the University of Hawaii. Finding paradise a little too sedate, Tom moved back to New York in 2003,
where he spent 10 years working at FCB, Y&R, Ogilvy and CDM.
In 2014 Tom moved back to San Francisco with his family.
Tom is a graduate of the illustrious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
He studied graphic design in Switzerland. And as an undergrad at
California State University Los Angeles Tom concentrated on Genetic Engineering.
Tom also pursues Olympic level fencing, scuba and sky diving,
and organizing large scale military reenactments.
He is currently working on a new book entitled “Advertising. As If!”
which is certainly destined to become an industry standard.
