As a board member on the Richmond Ad Club, I’m already starting to get stuff ready for the Richmond Show. In doing a bit of research, I was able to get my hands on a copy of the first annual Richmond Show award book. I think it’s from 1991. Anyway, as I was flipping through it, I noticed this project from a guy I used to work with, Des. I saw “Irishman” on the piece and thought to myself, “hah, that’d be funny if Des did this.” Then I looked at the credit. Pretty funny idea, although I think it would probably get you arrested these days.
I asked Des about the piece, “Got me an interview with Mike Hughes, so I guess it paid for itself.”
