ISBN 0-9548931-0-7 Graphic design versus advertising art direction. Concept versus form in typography and layout. Helmut Krone worked for William (Bill) Bernbach at DDB - the advertising agency singlehandedly responsible for the 'Creative Revolution' of the sixties. He changed the way advertising art direction was applied to photography; changed the way copywriters wrote copyand the ways art directors and agency typographers set type. Some say he was the greatest art director ever.



    Helmut Krone: My first favorite magazine was Popular Mechanics. I saved every copy... I don't see how you can do an intelligent creative job - tell somebody about something in an interesting way - unless you know everything about it."
