We take look inside the world’s sixth largest ad agency and its mastermind, Lee Clow. Having grown up surfing the beaches of Southern California, Clow liked the non-traditional independence that surfing allowed. He found the ad world to be a good fit early on, which enabled him to use his forward thinking at Chiat/Day. Forty years later, Clow continues to bring his translation of surf culture into the advertising mainstream.
