John Webster: The Human Ad Man

John Webster was the ad creative behind some of the UK’s best-loved ads, and advertising characters, of the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Google’s Patrick Collister recorded a series of interviews with Webster in 2004 and recently teamed up with students at the School of Communication Arts in London to turn them into a documentary about his life and work. The film has just been released online and can be viewed here.
