Clio Awards

Clio Awards 60th Anniversary

Agency: BBDO


As part of The Clio’s yearlong 60th anniversary celebration, they are unveiling six decades of (advertising) history immortalized in one masterpiece.
Clio worked with BBDO Los Angeles to honor some of the iconic men, women and ideas from the past 60 years that have defined this advertising era by canonizing them in a work of art as grand as their contributions to our industry. The result is a sprawling renaissance-style painting by Sam Spratt.
With a larger-than-life Clio at the center, the image is an homage to the pioneers (Bill Bernbach), trailblazers (Mary Wells Lawrence) and modern mavens (David Droga) whose strokes of genius are imprinted on our shared history.
The image also invites viewers to fall in love with advertising all over again, with a look at the most beloved characters that have shaped our popular culture-- from the Kool-Aid Man to The Bud Knight and beyond.
Visitors to can interact with the painting and become advertising history buffs by clicking on any character to learn more and share their favorites using #Clio60.
