Art & Copy

Documentary | USA 2008 | 88' | OV

An average city resident takes in about 5000 advertising messages – every single day. Most of these are banal, some are funny, a few are ingenious. ART & COPY presents the men and women who revolutionized the US advertising industry with their original campaigns, and showcases some exemplary, landmark achievements of their work: the VW bug advertisements by the Doyle, Dane and Bernbach agency, for instance, or George Lois’ provocative Tommy Hilfiger ads that won the fashion designer overnight fame. ART & COPY demonstrates how the best advertising combines creativity and selling in equally intelligent and entertaining ways.
