Phyllis Robinson was one of the major forces in late 20th Century advertising.
When Bill Bernbach opened the doors to Doyle, Dane & Bernbach in 1949 — what would soon become one of Madison Avenue’s dominant agencies — he recruited Phyllis Robinson to run the copy department.
She became the mentor to numerous copywriters and designers who blazed trails in the advertising world including: Paula Green, Julian Koenig, Mary Wells Lawrence and George Lois.
Phyllis Robinson, the original mad woman, died on December 31st in Manhattan.
