Founded in 1986 by Doyle, Dane, and Bernbach (finally an acronym we can understand!), DDB is the living definition of ‘powerhouse.’ Before they were even officially DDB, Doyle, Dane, and Bernbach were turning the advertising industry of the 50s upside down and inside out. And then right-side up and out again because they’re nice geniuses, not maniacs. They landed Volkswagen as a client and then proceeded to revolutionize the advertising world with their commercials – like this one. Just a little FYI here: DDB still has Volkswagen as a client – nearly 60 years later! Most impressively, DDB landed on Nixon’s infamous enemies list for their “Daisy” ad during the 1964 presidential campaign. If that doesn’t show the power/danger of advertising – we don’t know what does! Since then, they haven’t slowed down. In 1998, Advertising Age named DDB the first-ever “Global Network of the Year”. And then they did again in 2003. Part of the massive, multimillion-dollar communications network, Omnicom Group, DDB has been recognized and awarded with a multitude of awards in its impressive lifespan. Most recently, they escorted a pride of 16 Lions home from Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity; AKA the Oscars of the advertising world, which basically means that DDB just smashed Titanic’s Oscar record. Nowadays, they are making some serious branding magic with brands like Jeep, Kraft, Capital One, Hasbro, and Play-doh (if they get first dibs on new Play-doh fun factories, we’re officially jealous!). Running under the slogan that “creativity is the most powerful force in business”, DDB once more proves that when it comes to creative risk-taking, they take the cake.
