Collett Dickenson & Pearce - The Hip Store

19 September - 31 October 2015

A selection of creative advertisements from OUTSIDE: Collett Dickenson Pearce tours to The Hip Store, Leeds’ longest running independent menswear store.

CDP was the first creatively-led agency in the UK (1960-2000). Millward was the first creative director of the agency (1960-1979) and Collins was an art director, with a big character and creative legacy to match.


This recent retrospective revealed how CDP’s art direction and copywriting was clearly grounded in a British culture, characterised by satire and under Millward, uncompromising creative excellence. Such achievements were recognised recently by the British educational charity D&AD (Design and Art Direction) during its 50th year anniversary; pointing to CDP as the most-awarded agency of all time.
