Chiat's Dais #1
Nancy Ullman has uncovered a treasure trove of Chiat memorabilia.
Last week I found a sleeve/folder in the rafters of my garage entitled "Chiat's Adweek Columns." Inside were 12 insightful articles that Jay wrote for Adweek between 1982-1984. They must have had them printed out for us employees sometime between 1988-1990.
I think you would particularly enjoy "Humility Should Be Ruidimentary," because he speaks of the importance in doing some things yourself--why you should answer your own phone, and wash out your own mug. One of my favorites is "A Class Act, and How to Follow It," since anyone in any industry can take this advice and run with it. In it Jay even mentions what a classy many Guy Day was.
I am not going to publish all of them all at the same time, so as to not overwhelm you. Here's the first. Enjoy. Click on the image TWICE to blow it up to a readable size.
P.S. And thank you, Nancy for providing these to the archives!
