Remembering Paul Silverman


I got an email about Paul Silverman and figured the brief description in it along with a comment on Mullen's blog would sum it up better than I ever might:

"Just wanted to let you know that Paul Silverman, a founding partner and the original creative director at Mullen, passed away on Monday. He will be laid to rest tomorrow in Peabody, MA.

Not sure if you knew Paul or about him, but he was a legend in the ad business in the 70's, 80's and 90's. Won every award out there and did famous work for Timberland and BMW, among others. Also a genuinely nice and beloved man. His passion was writing and he was prolific in the short story format. His work is hosted on his site."

Other tributes can be found at Adweek and a Flickr page with a collection of Paul's advertising work.

...and this from Jim Mullen:

"Over my thirty wretchedly long years in advertising, Paul Silverman was the best I ever met. Ever."
