Vale David Abbott
Very sad news.
I never met him but I did spend a week sitting in his old office when I worked at BHWG in London.
His Volvo ads are legendary.
As is his work for The Economist.
One of my favourite memories of my time in advertising was introducing students at RMIT University to The Economist campaign.
Do yourself a favour and go type his name into Google. I guarantee you'll come away inspired.
