Educator's Hall of Fame
Rob Lawton is perhaps one of the greatest teachers in advertising. His critiques in the classroom are legendary for their brutal honesty, dead-on accuracy and incredible inspiration. In fact, Gary Goldsmith told Archive magazine that meeting with Rob launched his career. He is the common thread between many of today's creative superstars--among his students in the 1980s were illustrator Michael Schwab, photographer Mark Seliger, 2011 One Show Pencil-winner David Kampa and The Martin Agency’s Chief Creative Officer John Norman. Not surprisingly, whenever his former pupils are interviewed, they never fail to thank Rob for helping them achieve their many successes. In 1995, Rob co-founded The Creative Circus, where many of his graduates have gone on to be the executive creative directors, agency owners and One Show Pencil winners.
