'58 Corvette Direct Mail
FOR '58 THIS TWO- SEATER GOT SWEETER
This was my first Corvette direct mail piece. I think the copy may have been by Vic Olsen or maybe Henry Hager. Vic may not have been with us yet. Todd Walker did the photography in California. He had been doing a lot of work for Chevy before I got to Campbell-Ewald. Especially for my boss Harry Borgman. Harry has been in touch with me as a result of my blog and is still an active artist for fun and profit. He didn't spend the years at the agency that I did but rather opted for the life of an artist. He worked all over the world as a commercial artist and still found time to produce art for himself. He has published more than a dozen books along the way. The most recent is a wonderful book about doing art on the computer. It's called Digital Dreams--Exploring the computer as an art medium. He sent me a copy and I recommend it for anyone with a computer and an interest in art. I had no idea a computer could be made to bring forth such wonderful things.
Have a look at what this one time Chevy ad maker has been doing. Go to his website harryborgman.com and be sure to go through the whole site to see all he has been doing.
