Annual Review

New England ad agencies will be well represented in the December issue of Communication Arts.
Among the 253 winning entries in the visual communication magazine’s “Advertising Annual” will be work from local shops of all sizes, including the region’s largest–Arnold Communications and Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos–and several in the midsized category–Ingalls Advertising, Clark Goward, Cohn Godley Norwood, Greenberg Seronick O’Leary & Partners, Holland Mark Martin Edmund, Pagano Schenck & Kay.
Also making an appearance are two tiny unknowns: Fire Escape Advertising in Somerville, Mass., and Doyle Inc. in East Greenwich, R.I.
Although he’s now executive creative director with Hal Riney & Partners in San Francisco, John Doyle still retains a foothold in New England with a freelance practice.
Fire Escape is run by Jeff DeChausse, an art director with Cohn Godley Norwood, and Vinny Warren, a copywriter at Heater Advertising. The duo submitted a pro bono campaign it created for The Bottomless Closet, a nationwide program that collects clothes for women on welfare who are looking for jobs.
The ads selected for inclusion in the prestigious annual were culled from 13,000 entries. –Sarah Jones
