Jonathan Fong had never decorated anything before moving into his Santa Monica townhouse 12 years ago. "I have never been by nature a particularly creative person," says the former vice president at Suissa Miller Advertising. "I was into math and science as a kid--I'm Asian." The all-thumbs Fong needed to find a way to fix up his place that would be easy and economical, he says. "I kept asking myself, 'What can I do on my own that will look really cool and not cost a lot of money?'

DESIGNER and master crafter Jonathan Fong turned his front door into a whimsical holiday display, using paper tape and removable vinyl rub-on letters. The result: a standout entrance and fa-la-la-la-la window for less than $150. "There are no visual cues in California that the holidays are here," he says from his cheerful Santa Monica stoop. "So we have to do it ourselves."

Ad agencies usually produce 30-second commercials--not 30-minute TV shows. But don't tell that to David Suissa. The Santa Monica adman has plans to turn his advertising know-how into television show-how. The offbeat ad firm he founded six years ago, Suissa & Associates, has formed a subsidiary that will use the talents of the same employees who now create ads for such gambling resorts as the Tropicana in Las Vegas and Harvey's in Lake Tahoe to develop ideas for TV shows and feature films.
