*Art Direction & Copy writing for the not so smart

Being given free DVD's is a joy that just cannot be expressed. Sometimes I even receive video’s about things that I am crazy about. Please do not confuse me with the advertising folk, I am a designer. But I do love the excitement of real, world changing advertising. Not the stuff we see on TV today. Eww.

If you haven’t already seen it, even if you’re not in the industry, you must see it! Its inspiring and jaw dropping.

Here is the Synopsis (taken from the Art & Copy website)

ART & COPY is a powerful new film about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray (SURFWISE, SCRATCH, HYPE!), it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time -- people who've profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry. Exploding forth from advertising's "creative revolution" of the 1960s, these artists and writers all brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work in a business more often associated with mediocrity or manipulation: George Lois, Mary Wells, Dan Wieden, Lee Clow, Hal Riney and others featured in ART & COPY were responsible for "Just Do It," "I Love NY," "Where's the Beef?," "Got Milk," "Think Different," and brilliant campaigns for everything from cars to presidents. They managed to grab the attention of millions and truly move them.  Visually interwoven with their stories, TV satellites are launched, billboards are erected, and the social and cultural impact of their ads are brought to light in this dynamic exploration of art, commerce, and human emotion.

See, told you it is interesting!

PS. Just do it, I think it changed my life too... Sneaky bastards!
