Dave Buonaguidi has been a maverick in the advertising world for over 30 years. Starting his career at TBWA in the heady days of the mid 80s, he has worked in various small agencies, multinationals and start-ups, and co-founded agencies including St. Luke’s, the co-operative creative agency named ‘the most dangerous company on earth’ by The Harvard Business Review and Campaign Agency of the Year in 1997, and Karmarama, which became Marketing Week Agency of The Year 2011. It was here that he created the iconic MAKE TEA NOT WAR poster for the Stop the War Coalition.
Dave previously held the position of Creative Director for Channel4, managing advertising across the channel and setting up the acclaimed in-house
agency 4Creative. In 2017 he co-founded Unltd-Inc to work with start-up businesses launching their own products. Since 2014 he built a successful
career as an artist and screenprinter. He presented his TEDx talk ‘Be the driver, not the passenger’ in 2018.
This book is a rambling journey through his diverse career. Littered with stupid points of view, ridiculous rants, a few bits of art and other stories,
this is part memoir, part business book, for anyone who hates the status quo but wants to work hard, make brilliant work and be happy doing it.
