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.



    “The mid -‘70s saw a big change in type-setting techniques. It was the beginning of the end of hot metal, and of the kind of airy look that came with it. Computerised film setting meant that letter-spacing and line spacing could be set to negative amounts. And because they now could be, they were.
