Audacity, hard work and big ideas

Ken Honeywell is a Creative Director at Well Done Marketing in Fountain Square. He has over 30 years of experience as a copywriter and creative director and is one of the chaps behind Tonic Ball, an annual fundraising music festival. When he’s not creating great work , you can find him running Punchnels.com, a web magazine, and working on his next novel.

M plus Iowa

My bio/about me is the last thing I’m writing in 2011.

The trick to writing a compelling bio on a website is being personable and professional at the same time. I wanted to use MayowaTomori.com as a medium for showing my work ,as well as connecting with people in awesome and informal ways a la Cookie Me!

The bio will do for now but I’d ultimately like to scrap/rewrite the whole thing or do a 30s video instead.

But that will be a 2012 project.

Happy New Year!

Your friend,

“M” plus “Iowa”

The Magic Bowl

To continue to promote Cookie Me! I storyboarded and shot this 30 second spot, titled “Magic Bowl!”

I look forward to learning more AfterEffects in the next two months.
