About Dave Birss

A wee picture of Dave

I’m bald.
I wear glasses.
I’m a father.
I’m Scottish.
I live in London.
I’ve been Creative Director of a few agencies.
Some of them have been quite good.
I don’t do that any more.
I’m the founder of Additive.
We’re helping take traditional advertising into the future.
A bit like Doctor Who without the Daleks.
And with a bit more of an advertising-related storyline.
OK. We’re nothing like Doctor Who.
Forget I ever said that.
What I write here is entirely my own opinion.
Except for the bits I stole from other people.
I’m trying to make the internet better for dyslexics.
I’m an optimist about the world.
I always feel lucky.
I like real ale and strong cheese.
I’ll like you too if you buy me some.

    Dave…… point one and point three. Bald (?all over), Spare eyebrow(obviously not all over). Hmmm. I’m not sure about your honesty.

    When you wake up, immediately write down anything you remember about your dream. Guaran-damn-teed you’ll remember more.

    What!!! NO Daleks! Hardly seems right.
