   Helmut Krone: Ogilvy had written thirteen rules about how an ad like this should be... I gave my damnedest to break as many of these rules as possible. When Ogilvy said that the text always should be put in an antique typography, I put it in a grotesque one. When he said that the logo always should be clearly exposed, I'd hidden it.. I think I managed to break seven of his rules.' [There were 14 and Krone broke nine.]
