"1978 Annual of Art Directors Club of New York"
This year, Mr.George Lois was nominated as 'Hall of Fame' by Art Directors Club of New York.
Gradually but surely during the post World War II years a counterculture began to find expression on Madison Avenue through a new creative generation, a rebellious coterie of art directors and copywriters who understood that visual and verbal expressiveness were indivisible, who bridled under the old rules that consigned them to secondary roles in the admaking process under the dominion of noncreative technocrats.
A new species of advertising art was becoming discernible. It was strikingly graphic and visually "alive." It was entirely different from what had gone before. A creative upheaval was gathering. force. This new expressi veness was structured as a work method in 1948 when William Bernbach founded Doyle Dane Bernbach. In his new agency, an art director and a copywriter worked as a creative pair. The idea of using artistwriter teams as the prime source of advertising was positively revolutionary. From this union the New Advertising was born.
Madison Avenue would never be the same.
The ereative rock on which Bill Bernbach built his new agency was the art director Bob Gage. Indeed, many of the ad industry's most gifted art directors, such as Helmut Krone and William Taubin, also homed in at DDB, where Bernbach had precipitated what advertising people now generally accept as the Creative Revolution.
