Timeline Feature Image
The following is a brief, 60-year overview of the evolution of creativity in visual communications and its relationship to society, culture and technology. First created 20 years ago for our 40th anniversary, this timeline was expanded for our 50th anniversary, and now again for our 60th.
We’ve included projects and campaigns that have been noted as influential by our competition judges, other published sources or individual creatives. Work from the most recent years was chosen solely from our Annuals due to the absence of corroborative sources. Space constraints limited our coverage to work from the United States and Canada, and the positioning of work is approximate; exact dates are often difficult to ascertain due to a lack of public documentation, conflicting dates found in multiple sources and project durations that span more than a year.
Our selection is not intended as a comprehensive history; it is, of course, open to debate as you will certainly cite different projects as having an influence on your own career as a creative professional.
