The closest Chuck McBride got from the Big Apple was when he worked in Philadelphia for Wieden & Kennedy. But that was brief. Chuck is a West Coast Man. From Portland to San Diego, he has worked in the hottest American agencies of the 1990s and collected around 20 lions, all in the major category: film.
And we are not talking about Lions. We are talking about huge lions, films that are still top favorites of the world´s biggest creative directors. Who else has ideas like "Got Milk?", Nike´s "The Morning After" and Adidas One´s "Hello Tomorrow" in the same portfolio? If you know, please send me an e-mail suggesting.
