Who We Are
Copywriter, Wordplay Creative Copy & Campaigns
Cam Davis began his career as a copywriter in Southern California, winning countless awards at three different agencies. In 1991, he and his wife moved to Bend where he continued his amazing feats of verbal blandishment at a local agency for 11 years. In 2002, he started his own company known as Wordplay Creative Copy & Campaigns and found time to serve as a Board member for the Ad Federation of Central Oregon and as co-originator of a successful Web, Creative & Marketing Conference (Bend WebCAM), now known as Swivel. When not writing pithy ad copy, you’re likely to find him exploring Cascade trails on foot, bike, skis or snowshoes.
Founder & Strategist, Brand Name Soul Narrative
Justin Bronson is the Founder & Strategist at Brand Name Soul Narrative, a local strategic consultation firm. They guide brands through the process of deeper self discovery, inspiring the creation of more compelling and socially-impactful brand identities. “We believe that branding is more anthropological than most would like to admit. People desire authentic human connection, the kind that moves and inspires. The brands we work with have powerful stories that can create this kind of connection. To be able to have impact with the people they exist for, we guide our brands in how to better speak into the lives of their people with clear, consistent value.”
