1960-80 Designers

William Bernbach

As the single most influential creative force in advertising’s history, Bernbach served as an inspiring father figure to some of advertising’s most brilliant talents. His copywriters and art directors lived for his approval, competed to make his blue eyes sparkle, to produce work that would earn a Bernbachian smile. “What did Bill think?” was the question his Doyle Dane Bernbach people and clients would ask when new work was shown. Bernbach ruled. “I warn you against believing that advertising is a science.” — Bill Bernbach
