David Barnum


David Barnum literally grew up in advertising and design. His father, H.J. Barnum Jr., M.D., was Executive Vice President at JWT in the ’60s and ’70s (real “madmen” days). David spent a lot of time hanging out in the corporate offices as a small boy and an early fascination with typography was reinforced by the large letterpress type mosaic in the JWT lobby that he took great glee in removing the B’s from.

Over the course of many years in advertising and marketing, David forged direct relationships with clients and started Barnum Design in 1995. Barnum Design keeps a focus on creative excellence in order to facilitate a media neutral approach to advertising and marketing. By focusing on a client’s unique attributes, Barnum Design is able to craft strategic branding assets that can be re-purposed and deployed across a wide variety of tactical programs, as either bits and bytes, or brick and mortar.

Comments & Advice:
  1. Dear David,
    I worked several years for your Dad at JWT, and later Deltakos. He was a boss, mentor and good friend over the years. I’d love to have a chat with you. Can you let me have your number and a time to call?

    We live in Brittany, so there’s a time difference.

    Best regards,
