ISBN 0-9548931-0-7 The evolution of commercial art into graphic design and then into advertising art direction. The 'Creative Revolution' orchestrated by William (Bill) Bernbach in New York moved 'Seventh Avenue' advertising methods into the mainstream. Helmut Krone's achievements as an art director at Doyle Dane Bernbach evolved fromPaul Rand, Lester Beall, Bob Gage and from Europe's Alexey Brodovitch, Jan Tschichold and John Heartfield.
