Modern by Design Film Talk | Creative Broadcast: Communication, Commercials, and Advertising

Tuesday, November 27

Presented in partnership with the Chicago Film Archives as part of programming for Modern by Design: Chicago Streamlines America, this free film screening is followed by a discussion.

Chicago has been home to several prominent advertising agencies, such as Leo Burnett. In this program, professor Michael Golec of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago highlights a few of those firms and their designers. Featured works include Addressograph Multigraph Corporation: “The Straight Talking Copy People” (mid-1970s), Allstate Insurance: “Another Year of Success” (1969), and various commercials for Sears, Quaker Oats, United Airlines, and more.
