KC Ifeanyi over at Fast Company was awesome enough to spotlight the early advertising work of legendary wordsmith and illustrator Dr. Seuss, whose masterfully crafted children’s stories have charmed generations of humans young and old.
The ads feature a creative playfulness, flavor and style distinctly Seussian, and in them we see the man’s genius sharpening and shaping up in the sandbox of commercial art. And as the great David Ogilvy said, “If it doesn’t sell, it isn’t creative.”
