George Lois: Madison Avenue’s Best-Known Art Director Who Created Stunning Covers for Esquire Magazine

From a New York Times obit by Robert D. McFadden headlined “George Lois, 91, Who Brought the Counterculture to Advertising, Dies”:

George Lois, Madison Avenue’s best-known 20th-century art director, who put the counterculture of the 1960s and ’70s into postwar advertising and created stunning covers for Esquire magazine that rebuked American racism and involvement in the Vietnam War, died on Friday at his home in Manhattan.

His son Luke confirmed the death, which he noted followed the death of Mr. Lois’s wife, Rosemary, by two months.
