ICONS ARE BETTER #81: PRINCE

“Today we lost a creative icon” – President Obama.

On April 21st 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota the world was given a prolific musical visionary that would go on to win seven Grammy’s and an Academy Award.

Following in the footsteps of his jazz singing mother and song writing father, Prince wrote his first song “Funk Machine” at the age of seven. The visionary artist we know today as Prince cut his teeth in high school playing clubs and parties in the Minneapolis area with his long time collaborator Andre Anderson and cousin Charles Smith.

Co-Founder Roy Spence inducted into Advertising Hall of Fame

Reverend Roy. He’s known for co-founding GSD&M in 1971 with partners Judy Trabulsi, Steve Gurasich and Tim McClure, but he’s perhaps best known for his electric and passionate personality. So, it was with joy and pride, yet little surprise, when we learned our fearless leader would be the first Austinite and second Texan to be inducted into the American Advertising Federation’s 67th Annual Advertising Hall of Fame. His accomplishments include bringing on renowned brands like Southwest Airlines, Walmart, AT&T and Charles Schwab to the GSD&M roster, authoring three books, co-founding The Purpose Institute to help companies find their core purpose and values, and even starting his own hot sauce line, Royito’s. But it is Roy’s heart, as President Bill Clinton noted at the induction ceremony, that’s led him to success in advertising, leadership and all aspects of life. We couldn’t be more proud of you, Reverend Roy. Ride At Dawn!
