Who is... Tom Fishburne?
by Ella, on 20 September, 2017
Tom Fishburne has a penchant for marketing humour, his 'marketoons' parodying the very industry that he has worked within for so many years. It all began with a weekly cartoon, and has led to the launch of Marketoonist and a career in helping brands communicate through a new form of shareable media.
Why we love him
Tom has offered up an alternative way brands can communicate. He has injected a sense of humour and creativity into the fiercely competitive content marketing space.
Tom's playful approach does not disrupt the intelligence of his vision, with his team at Marketoonist helping notable brands reach new audiences and embrace an offbeat approach.
