A major issue around advertising and marketing nowadays is that there is a drive to “learn and perfect” it. And this is resulting in less actual creativity being used. Apparently this has been an issue going all the way back to the start of the advertising age, two years after World War 2 in 1947. In that year, William “Bill” Bernach was the Creative Director at Grey Advertising, before leaving to become one of the founders of DDB.
