Joe McCambley is creative director and co-founder of The Wonderfactory, a New York City digital design firm. Dubbed by some the ad industry's “first digital copywriter,” McCambley was part of the team in 1994 that created the first-ever banner ad. His views on seismic shifts in marketing and advertising have been featured prominently in Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, Forbes and on Fox Business News' “After the Bell.” Grounded in the axiom that the best advertising helps and informs consumers, McCambley and The Wonderfactory work with publishers and advertisers to look beyond article-based native advertising and focus more broadly on native products, which combine search, text, videos, photos, email and device-inherent features to help consumers when and where they need it. The Wonderfactory's clients, past and present, include The Huffington Post, WebMD, Coca-Cola, ESPN, AARP, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, The Washington Post, Zagat, and others. Besides helping to launch HuffPo, The Wonderfactory has also designed apps for The Weather Channel and TIME. Prior to starting The Wonderfactory in 2005 with creative director David Link, McCambley ran the creative studio at AOL. Before that, he was chief creative officer at Digitas and Modem Media. McCambley started his advertising career in the 1980s, working for several Boston agencies.
