ATLANTA, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Norm Grey, the founder of The Creative Circus, has been elected to The One Club's Educator Hall of Fame.
Grey is now the Executive Creative Director of the Creative Circus, one of the most reputable and effective advertising portfolio schools in the United States. Mr. Grey has worked in the industry as a designer/art director, a copywriter, a creative director, an executive creative director and an agency owner, working on brands such as Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, Lincoln-Mercury and Bristol-Myers. In 1995, he and a group of other advertising industry professionals started the Creative Circus to help others break into advertising.
"It's a fantastic honor," Grey said. "I'm very happy that the induction is specifically as an educator. That's because 'real world' professionals face an awful lot of difficulties that students and especially their teachers can easily avoid."
The Creative Hall of Fame was first established in 1961 with the induction of Leo Burnett. At that time it was named the Copywriters Hall of Fame, sponsored by the Copy Club of New York. In 2012, the One Club held the inaugural Educator's Hall of Fame, honoring educators who have created a legacy and fostered the next generation of creative talent. Rob Lawton, also of the Creative Circus, and Richard Wilde were the first two inductees, and Norm joined this esteemed group.
The Creative Hall of Fame ceremony will be held in the opulent grand ballroom of Gotham Hall in Manhattan on Friday, January 30th.
