Richard Russell has been announced as the international guest lecturer for Copy School, running in Sydney this Monday November 9 and the following week in Melbourne from Monday November 20.
There are still some spots remaining so book now at copyschool.org.
Russell’s best-known work was produced at Wieden + Kennedy, where he was responsible for much of the early years of the world-renowned Honda ‘Power of Dreams’ campaign – from the brand book that won the pitch, to the ‘OK Factory’ launch commercial, to the launch Print and Radio, to the later ‘Banana’ print ad, and the Diesel ‘Grrr’ TV spot – which is so famously successful it has its own Wikipedia page.
In 2010, ‘The Power Of Dreams’ was voted ‘Campaign Of The Decade’ by Campaign magazine.
Russell joins the stellar line-up of Sydney tutors (and Melbourne’s next week).
