ADC Announces 2011 Hall of Fame Class

The Art Directors Club inducted four new members into its Hall of Fame, which already counts the likes of Andy Warhol, Leo Burnett, Jay Chiat, Walt Disney and Milton Glaser.

The 2011 HOF class includes W+K partner/ECD John C. Jay (pictured), who took his talents from Bloomingdale’s to Portland back in 1993 and subsequently helped establish the agency’s offices in Shanghai, Tokyo and Delhi. Other inductees include Joe Pytka, director of over 5,000 commercials who recently helmed what were essentially reboots of his old spots including one for PepsiMax and another for McDonald’s. The final two in the ADC 2011 HOF class are art director/designer Ruth Ansel and painter/illustrator/SVA chairman Marshall Arisman.

ADC board members and associates including AKQA’s Rei Inamoto and Taxi chairman Paul Lavoie selected the Hall of Famers, who will be inducted at a black-tie benefit gala in NYC on Nov. 10.

Bond No. 9′s Andy Warhol Fragrance

AW_Lexington_Avenue.jpg

Bond No. 9 is marketing its new fragrance in the Andy Warhol Series. Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue is the third in the collection. The cost of the perfume is a bit lavish (around $200). And while I admire Andy Warhol as an artist, I hardly think perfume when I hear his name. Sure the bottle designs which are inspired by Warhol paintings are nice, but who really cares what their perfume bottle looks like? Using Warhol’s name in an effort to fool consumers into thinking your brand is cool makes the brand seem exponentially less interesting to me.
