Art in Advertising Tony Rawlins Monday 01 April 2019

Fine art has provided advertisers and their agencies with a great deal of material to use in their creative campaigns. In an entertaining and informative lecture Tony Rawlins uses a wide range of visuals and video to show examples of the original works, the creative process and the (not always entirely successful) advertisments that are the end result.

Lecturer: Tony Rawlins started his career in advertising in 1965 as a mail boy. Graduating through the training system to become an account director, he worked in a number of agencies before setting up on his own in 1985, primarily to handle Guiness accounts in Africa and the Caribbean. He remains active in the industry but now concentrates on more philanthropic projects.
