ISBN 0-9548931-0-7 The greatest art director ever? Or a graphic designer in an ad agency? Helmut Krone worked for Wiliam (Bill) Bernbach at Doyle Dane Bernbach. His Volkswagen Beetle campaign and Avis campaign (the defining campaigns of the 'Creative Revolution'), changed the way advertising art direction, copywriting and the advertising creative team worked. He formed his own advertising agency to investigate the possibilities of 'graphics' - graphic design - free of 'concept'. Later, back at DDB, he'd reconcile graphic design and art direction with his Polaroid campaign and Porsche campaign.
