What David Ogilvy Can Teach You About Marketing

David Ogilvy, the “Father of Advertising” as some have described him, was a well-known and very successful advertiser in the middle part of the 20th century. Actually, Time magazine called Ogilvy “the most sought-after wizard in today’s advertising industry.” Quite the curriculum vitae, I’d say.

Luxury Marketing: The Magical, Fantastical, Mystery… Pen? How Montblanc Saved the Pen from Obsolescence [CASE STUDY]

Ballpoint killed the fountain. Overseas manufacturing devalued the ballpoint. Typewriters – and then computers – supplanted handwriting. What a terrible climate if you’re selling pens!
