Lee Clow- Lifetime Achievement Award

Today at the Clio Awards Festival in Miami Beach, FL, Lee Clow will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Since joining Chiat/Day back in 1972, he's been at the forefront of classic ad campaigns, the most famous being Apple's 1984. Already Clow has been inducted into the One Club Hall of Fame, Art Director's Hall of Fame, and the Musuem of Modern Art's Advertising Hall of Fame. He's worked on ads for Apple, Nissan, Energizer, Taco Bell, ABC, Adidas, Nextel, Levi's, Pizza Hut, Sony Playstation, California Coolers, California Pistachios, Whiskas, Yamaha, Pioneer, and loads of others.

Most recently, Clow is working on an international non-profit branding campaign "to mobilize audiences to help children in war-ravaged cities. The comprehensive communications and branding campaign was executed entirely pro bono by the agency. It supports the "We Are the Future" initiative of music legend Quincy Jones and peace negotiator Uri Savir, which begins with a globally telecast all-star concert in Rome, Italy on May 16, 2004."

Oh yeah, there's more.
