His influence reached out to creative forces in graphics everywhere. no person. even more important. but by being distinguished and subtle and original. William Golden was associated with CBS. kind and warm. no compulsion that would lead him to settle for the second best. I knew him. Bill's life was short. or to discard what he knew was good. CBS has a very deep and a very real obligation to Bill Golden -and so. He himself labored long hours to achieve the best-a perfectionist as demanding of himself as he was of others. he had one devotion and that was to excellence. and in design he was absolutely uncompromising as far as quality was concerned. He was my friend. As media ourselves. Bill believed that the way to command attention and win approval was not by being sensational or shrill or obvious. Bill could Ie inflexible. impatient. Bill's life was full. his life. by extension. his relationships to others. I hope very much that Bill Golden's influence will beextended and prolonged by these examples of his brilliant uiork. Distinction in advertising was a quality essential to the growth of CBS. His was a powerful influence that went out way beyond those of us who were prodded into doing our best by the very proximity of his vigorous personality. giving them new standards of excellence. This book. his career. He could not be bargained with or cowed. Bill Golden was our relentless master in the pursuit of the firstrate.Preface by Frank Stanton For nearly a quarter of a century. There was fibre in his character-a tough fibre that won him the respect of all his colleagues. There was no factor.

He knew that it did not come as easily as the adequate. But he was also gentle. He could not have cared less about titles or rank or position.

a period of falling idols and new heroes . They are based on an instinct that would make a journalist envious. the news and its interpretation..The passionate eye by Will Burtin Consider this: . filled with people of strong words and often changing convictions . a field in which every aspect of art. a corporation that sends sound and images into homes. science. commentators around the globe to respond on the spot to significant events wherever they happen .. a man who never forgets: that he is responsible for what he does and what his work may do for others. and the sale of air time to advertisers . plants..... He has a sense for the explosive impact of words. that a moral question stands behind every moment of living and working. a corporation whose business is: the presentation of entertainment... his potential and how these factors will result in an original expression that gives new meaning to a message. There is a mental dexterity and an absolute mastery of subtle details. a complete absence of graphic tricks or of intellectual gimmickry. . He understands the relationship between an artist's personality. theatres-indeed. a period in history marked by deep conflicts between ideas.. a field crisscrossed by the plowed furrows of surveys.. an epoch when a new communication medium takes a powerful hold on people's consciousness of the world around them ... a corporation that grows within a lifetime from small beginnings to giant size . human aspirations 10 and emotions. as well as rivers of mediocrity and worse . that the corporation which employs his skill is a combination of people with many abilities and motivations but one purpose. . social theories. offices. his style. has been used to produce some of the most inspiring and memorable experiences....... restaurants...

But what we cannot teach is the feeling for continuity. socially ambitious and security-craving is genuine. how to solve the problems of a "corporate image" by conceiving of it as the grand design behind individual designs and not as a mere variation of a principle-and how to. The success of this working method has made advertising and design history. of small ads. we define rules of design. magazine articles. the halftone screen or the subject and style of art work-nothing escapes this intensive attention. of books and pamphlets. of big ads. of annual reports. not pUblicity. big folders. more beautiful! In our design schools we teach the meaning of esthetics. He wants to see work and not a tricky paste-up of other people's work. What he knows is self-taught. He distrusts a formula and respects only unreserved attention to a task. listen to meanings behind the words of the great and the small. Unmoved by laudatory exclamations every new job reflects his deeper insight into the fabric of human communication and motivation. how to remain alert to the sudden excitement of a better idea two hours before the engraver picks up the completed art work. at the same time. Here is William Golden. sales reports. in which no detail is small or without significance. we teach working procedures. the development of "the eye" as a CBS trademark-the conscious application of the trademark in steadily changing ways-the unending concern with new ways to say something still simpler. how to keep a staff electrified and unified in the dedication to perfection.for the corporation he works for.

adapted from the three-hour original play of The Old Vic Company If there is such a thing as a "New American Typography" surely it speaks with a foreign accent. Is it the simple (and perfectly justifiable) instinct for trade promotion? Or have we imported the European propensity for surrounding even the simplest actions with a gestalt? Perhaps the explanation is simpler.

IHE GENEVA CONFERENCE
T he international scene is a frequent subject for advertisements. A familiar typographic "SEE" column is given added impact by its frame of massed phutogmphy. The photograph of Khrushchev, taken from the television screen, reflects the urgency of the message

On the eve of the historic EastWest Foreign Ministers' meeting, CBS NEWS gathers six top correspondents in Geneva: HOWARD K_ SMITH and ERIC SEVAREID from Washington, CHARLES COLLI NGWOOD from London, DAVID SCHOENBRUN from Paris, ERNEST LEISER fFOm Bonn and DANIEL SCHORR on assignment to Warsaw, for a special on-thescene report that examines the Berlin crisis, the bargaining posit ions of East and West and the possible outcome of the discussions in the Palais des Nations.

confusing way, and almost none of it is new. Even the insistence on newness at any cost is in itself familiar. Perhaps it would be useful for a conference like this to sort it all out. Not merely to summarize this conference, but all of them. If it could be done without padding, I imagine that what is valid about typography would be very brief and relatively simple. What is right about current typography is so apparent when you see it that it requires no explanation. What is wrong is a little more complex. It is not as difficult to define what is wrong as it is to find how we got there. I have my own notion of how we got where we are, and though I have neither the competence nor the ambition to be a typographic historian, this is roughly how it looks from one viewpoint. Some thirty years ago the rebellious advertising and editorial designer in America was engaged in a conspiracy to bring order, clarity and directness to the printed page. He fought against the picture of the factory, the company logotype, and the small picture of the package that invariably accompanied it. He protested that the copy was too long, and that he was obliged to set it so small that no one would read it. He argued that the normal ad contained too many elements. (He even invented the "busy" page in some effort to accommodate himself to it.) He insisted that this effort to say so many things at once was self-defeating and could only result in communicating nothing to the reader. He was essentially picture-minded, and only reluctantly realized that he had to learn something about type. It was and still is a damned nuisance, but when he realized how thoroughly its mechanical and thoughtless application could de19

the designer was beginning to learn to use the combination of word and image to communicate more effectively. Everyone knew instinctively what the journalists had reduced to a formula: that if you read a headline. And surely a dominating influence on American typography in the prewar years was exerted by the journalists. he became aware (perhaps too aware) of the textural qualities and color values of type as an element of design. he had to learn to control itto design with it. There was more flexibility in the use of a pencil than in the manipulation of a metal form. The skillful development of the use of headline and picture was a far more prevalent influence than the European poster. Under the twin impact of the functionalism of the Bauhaus and the practical demands of American business. a picture. Newspapers and magazines were the primary media of mass communication. There was more oppor21 . The newspaper taught us speed in communication. Perhaps the greatest change in American typography was caused by this simple act-the transfer of the design function of the printer to the graphic designer. He could "draw" a page. The designer was able to bring a whole new background and a new set of influences to the printed page. The magazine communicated at a more leisurely pace and could be more provocative since it addressed a more selective audience. Because the magazine dealt more in concepts than in news it was far more imaginative. It became a new medium for the designer. Under the influence of the modern painters. and the first three paragraphs of any story you would know all the essential facts.['l-IE '"TE""EJ:S A mailing piece combines famous comments on women by eight historic literary figures with reviews of a new documentary proqram. called" Woman!"

I think it was men like Agha and Brodovitch. It wasn't long before he began to design the page before it was written. It was accomplished without a single design conference III New York or in Colorado or anywhere else in America. was the "terrific headline" and the "wonderful picture. He was no longer that clever. He might even be able to demonstrate that he could communicate its content better and with more interest than the writer. But what gave it a new direction and style was not so purely American. He could now read and understand the text. They did this by the simple process of demonstrating that the designer could also think. He could even startle the editor by suggesting content. The "layout man" was becoming an editor. Certainly the new technical developments in photography increased the range of its reportage. Whatever successes this revolution achieved were accomplished by demonstration-by individual designers proving to their clients and employers (by solving their problems) the validity of their point of view and the value of their talents. that hastened a new effort on the part of the magazine. These importations from Europe set a pace that not only changed the face of the magazine and consequently advertising design. and writers began to write to a character count to fit the layout. a rival medium.Cover of a brochure announcing a series of documentary programs A nnouncement folder for the first program of "Woman!" with a Botticelli engraving of Venus tunity here.

There were. that there was not only a shortage of paper in Europe but there was a shortage of design. There was a long period when the bulk of the world's graphic material was being produced in America. There were few products to advertise and therefore very little to say about them. American typographers made great strides in relation to the Europeans. A narrow newspaper ad invites attention to seasonal entertainment with casual eft ectiueness .

I believe the designer won his new status in the business community because he had demonstrated that he could communicate an idea or a fact on the printed page at least as well. it didn't matter too greatly what or how it was said.

If a designer could pretend that the money to be spent to reproduce his design was his own. I suspect he would subject himself to far more rigid disciplines. and no better.

I think he should avoid designing for designers. the statement becomes an advertisement for the designer rather than his client. The immature avant-garde designer seems bitter about the mainstream of American advertising. I suggest that the word "design" be considered as a verb in the sense that we design something to be communicated to someone. He believes that the role of business should be one of patron of the Arts. Perhaps it would help to clear the air a little if we were conscious that printing and advertising cost a great deal of money. This is rarely permitted in the mainstream of advertising. he will sign it-just as the easel painter does. and a rational understanding of his function. I do not argue for the return to any form of traditionalism. I do argue for a sense of responsibility on the part of the designer. It sometimes develops that as a result of this hopeful transaction. The man with something to say comes to the designer in the belief that the designer with his special skills will say it more effectively for him. When he examines his work with relation to its function.

Whatever contributes to its success is right. but as Business gets bigger and bigger. Its objective is reflected in its most important single printed document -the Annual Report. Thus the morality of Business is clear and reasonably defensible. Whatever endangers the financial statement is wrong. This is why at some stage of his maturity he feels the need to have a voice in the content itself. CHANNEL lACK BENNY 2 CBSTE. The morality of the businessman may be something else again. his energies will be socially useful-if the business is sufficiently profitable.. So without having to make a single social decision the corporation executive can tend strictly to business with the comforting assurance that no matter how it is conducted (short of public scandal). If the Report is unfavorable for very long the business will cease to exist. His first responsibility is to the Corporation and not to society. This is the yardstick by which all its decisions are measured. He would say that in our economy what is right for the corporation must inevitably be good for society. The polished elegance of a Rene Bouche portrait someone else controls them the best he can produce is a counterfeit. For Business the question of content is very simple..BACK TONIGHT -~ I 7:30 PM. If the advertising designer begins to "examine the purposes to which this vast communications machinery is put" (as a prospectus for this conference suggests).

The theme: Success story of a television The artist: David Stone Martin program Anybody here you don't know? Overnight fame for anonymous people: A double-page trade ad on a popular quiz program The dilemma of the literate advertising designer is that emotionally he is part small businessman and part artist. It is not subject to anyone's opinion. It is non-controversial. It has no views on Art. But he soon discovers that despite the prattle of the public relations expert about "lean. He isn't strong enough to cut himself off from the world of business to make the personal statement of the artist." the designer is seldom called upon to work with them. For Business wants him to help create an attitude about the facts. it has an abiding interest in consumers. For facts in certain juxtapositions can offend some portion of the market. In an era of mass-marketing. He finds that he is part of a gigantic merchandising apparatus in which the media of mass communication have reached a miraculous degree of technical perfection and are being operated at full speed to say as little as necessary in the most impressive way. He somehow wants the best of both worlds. and feels that he is not using all his talents. And only about some of the facts. for no potential consumer must be offended. hard facts. It can be measured and tabulated. He isn't a pure enough businessman to turn his attention completely away from the arts. not to communicate them. So he finds himself working with half-truths. Though Business may have no legitimate interest in people. I think. The designer for the most part would be willing. 61 . The Fact of Business. The Fact of Science. Religion or Politics. to accept The Fact as the content for his work. The Fact is beyond suspicion. When he turns to Business he is told that the content of our time is The Fact. He becomes a kind of soft-boiled businessman. controversy is assumed to be bad for business.

is what the advertising designer is called upon to do. The young designer finds it a wonderful shortcut-a do-it-yourself Art. In fact I think he is pretty lucky. too. If he can adjust himself easily to this framework he can work very happily. In the brave new world of Strontium 90-a world in which craftsmanship is an intolerable deterrent to mass production-it is a good thing to be able to practice a useful craft. But I doubt the necessity to search in so many fruitless directions for a solution to the designer's plight. Once he stops confusing Art with design for Business and stops making demands on the business world that it has neither the capacity nor the obligation to fulfill. The cynical advertising designer can embrace it because it can help him demonstrate his independence of content. It is in itself a Fact. but looks further for a deeper meaning for his work. Business can accept it because it is successful. and certainly to almost all the younger ones. If he is reluctant to accept the role of a propagandist for business. There is one inviting avenue of escape that seems to give comfort to an increasing number of designers. It is that wonderful panacea that came to full flower in a disturbed postwar world: the abstract expressionist school of painting.A photograph of aNew Jersey backyard provides the cover for this quarterly reference booklet And this. and oddly enough "safe" since it says absolutely nothing. It is acceptable because it is Art. and may even be handsomely rewarded for his efforts. And anyone can find delight in its total concentration on technique. he'll probably be all right. he might find greater solace on the psychiatrist's couch than he will in Aspen. It is a craft that is susceptible to further growth and that can so far do something that neither the Management Execu63 .

The standards of one group were totally at odds with the next and yet its task was to produce a single cohesive exhibition. On stilI another occasion the exhibition committee discovered that the jury had failed to find a single example from an industry that was the largest user of advertising in America. Another was selecting only those entries which corresponded to their notion of the avantgarde movement.! "1lOI4 . This was immediately corrected though nobody before had discovered anything worth hanging...." In another category he was singled out for special attention by a group which had less interest in novelty than in distinction.....

They had submitted many entries since they couldn't know whether the jury would be "old guard" or "avant-garde. but they were prevented by exhibition practice.

Should there be different jurors and different standards from 75 A n antique weather vane becomes the symbol for advertisements.

Perhaps my most puzzling experience as a juror was to serve with a man I had long admired. Where is the 'design'? Anybody can put a caption under a picture. but a clearly thought out solution to a problem." I had found an ad which consisted of an outstanding photograph and a single line of copy. from showing it. He had been demonstrating for years that any page in which the hand of the designer was evident was a bad page-that a good concept flawlessly and simply executed should be the objective of every art director."

I think the fine artist makes a personal statement about his world. He makes it to a limited audience. Excerpts from the panel discussion related to William Golden's paper at the Aspen Design Conference: you define the role of the designer as contrasted to the role of the fine artist? GOLDEN: I think they're two completely different things. But this something special is for sale-it is communicating something that is not his own.The double-page ad in "Variety" features the financial success and audience acceptance of network programs.

I think a lot of designers. who are talented and intelligent don't find this very satisfying. year to year? Does the practice of awards encourage a community feeling among designers or contribute to their disunity? Shouldn't an exhibition announce its jury and its criteria before entries are submitted rather than wade through a mass of material that seems to have been submitted in error? Must selections be limited by an exhibitor's ability to pay? I can't help but feel that if these questions can be fully discussed. he becomes a professional who can do something special. I think all the trouble in this field comes from someone's assumption that they are maybe the same person. there would be fewer and more significant exhibitions. I think the trouble comes when he tries to make it a work of art. If he's honest enough.ON N:EWS FROM COS thing to be a painter.
