PROFILE/RESUME
Jon Saunders  
Copywriter, Freelance Copywriter,
I've been a copywriter and creative director at some of 
New York's better ad agencies for over twenty years. 
And, for the past dozen or so, at my own company,
Saunders Communications.

Some people consider me one of the five or six top writers
in financial services advertising. But my work on corporate, 
consumer, B2B, direct marketing, healthcare and technology 
accounts hasn't been too shabby either. 

I've been lucky enough to work on great accounts like 
Bank of America, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Du Pont, Folger's 
Coffee, Group W, IBM, Jaguar, JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch, 
Pan Am, Peninsula Hotels, Pfizer, Puff's Tissues, 
UBS, Unisys, the U.S. Army and the Wall Street 
Journal. And to win some swell awards for my work

In my last agency job, I was Worldwide Creative 
Director on the Merrill Lynch and Unisys accounts.
Before that, I was Executive Creative Director of   
a boutique agency.

Since starting my own company, I've done some nice
work for CNN, Merrill Lynch, ProFunds, Samsung and
Volvo, as well as for a number of up-and-coming 
companies. And for some agencies and design firms. 
 
And although I call myself an ad guy, fact is I do all 
kinds of writing: brochures, editorial, direct response, 
news releases and Web content.  

Maybe I can do some for you. Let's talk.
