Between 1959 and 1963, ICAD published Campaign: the journal of the Institute of Creative Advertising and Design. Received to critical acclaim at home and abroad, the publication presents an unrivalled snapshot of the early formative years of advertising and particularly graphic design in Ireland and highlights the issues that were being discussed.
There were a total of eleven issues, produced quarterly and edited by Bernard Share and Isolde Farrell. Contributors included Jan de Fouw, Bill Bolger, Giles Talbot Kelly and Jarlath Hayes with design by such luminaries as Cor Klaasan and Piet Sluis.
ICAD is proud to announce that issue twelve will be published this year with the support of Irish Design 2015. ICAD plan to issue the publication annually to help sate the appetite for intelligent discourse and critical thinking in the fields of advertising and design, both local and international. The publication will reprint key texts from the original Campaign, revive some of the regular features and provide contemporary critical comment, supported by expert contributions. Like its predecessor, the publication will be dedicated to the promotion of high standards of creative excellence in Irish visual communications.
