A lifetime of creativity: The copywriter of Apple's 1984 ads

 

Please join us in welcoming guest speaker Gary Gusick, writer of Apple's 1984 print and TV work at our January luncheon on Thursday, January 25th from 11:30-1:00 pm at Sambuca.

 

During this talk, Gary will share the story behind his legendary campaign, and sage wisdom gathered over a lifetime of creative work.

 

Named as one of the top commercials of all time, Apple's 1984 spot introducing the MacIntosh computer began as a print ad written by Gary. His career has taken him from Dailey & Associates and TBWA/Chiat Day in San Francisco to Scali, McCabe,& Sloves in New York – all before becoming a partner in his own firm, Arian, Lowe, Travis & Gusick in Chicago.
