Here’s another spot produced by John Hubley’s Storyboard. The highlight here is Rod Scribner’s genius animation. I’ve pulled some frame grabs if you want to look at the drawings more closely.
The commercial was directed by Stan Walsh, who later became the co-founder of Quartet Films. The idea for the spot was conceived by John Hubley and Robert Guidi, one of the best known West Coast graphic designers of the time. Guidi is a somewhat forgotten figure nowadays, as most mid-century West Coast designers are with the exception of Saul Bass, but he was big during the ’50s and ’60s. Guidi co-owned the highly successful design studio, Tri-Arts, and he was the primary album cover designer for the Contemporary jazz label.
