95 - Selling at the intersection of creativity and business with Alexis Bronstorph

Hello and welcome to the 95th episode of The Spark & The Art creativity podcast. Thank you for subscribing to our weekly podcast, where we alternate between interviews with creative folks from all different career levels and insight and inspiration episodes. All with the intention you’ll get what you need to get your creative projects started and, more importantly, finished.

I’m your host Tucker and this week is an interview with Alexis Bronstorph. Alexis is the creative partner of Kelsey Horne who we talked with last interview episode. 

Alexis is a writer specializing in advertising and has been working towards that goal since she was a kid. She tells the story of how she was inspired by some TV shows like Who’s The Boss as a kid. We also talk about the need to just keep doing your work, the power of post secondary education as both a way to immerse yourself in a subjects world as well as a safe place to just be terrible at what you want to get good at. 

We also talk about what intrigues her about advertising and how her and Kelsey work together. If you’re looking for drama and intrigue in the advertising world this is not the episode for you. Like Kelsey in our previous episode Alexis loves the work, loves her team and loves the challenges and rewards it all brings. 

We talk about a couple ad spots the Kraft Peanut Butter bears and Mio a drink flavouring you squirt in your water to make it tasty and you can see them at Alexis’ website http://www.alexisbronstorph.com/ or if you don’t want to bother typing anything you can just click in the links in the show notes in your podcast player or at TheSparkAndTheArt.com/95
