John Gillard has passed away


John Gillard - the man who founded and was the burning fire behind the School of Communication Art in London, passed away this past Saturday.

John Gillard taught and practiced advertising and communication with a passion unlike any other for more than thirty years, and founded the School of Communication Art in 1985.

In 1995 John retired, and the school with him due to lack of funds, and also lack of a strong creative leader like himself. The funeral will be held in Shropshire, Monday the 6th of November at two p.m. Rather than flowers, the family would apreciate it of you would send a small donation to the Parkinson's Society Of the UK

215 Vauxhall Bridge Road
United Kingdom
Phone: 0171 931 8080, instead.

Gillard devoted his life to teaching the new generation the power of communication and will be greatly missed by many past students who have had their lives changed by him.
