We've said it several times before. If AdLand knows anything at all, it knows how to reward itself. The One Club, one of the premier creative organizations in the industry, announced five industry professionals who will be inducted into the One Club's Hall of Fame.

They are:
  • Bob Greenberg, founder of the R/GA agency, as well as its chairman and chief executive
  • Washington Olivetto, chairman of McCann Brazil and CCO of McCann Worldgroup for Latin America and Brazil
  • Allan Beaver, partner in the agency named Levine Huntley Schimdt & Beaver
  • The design duo Massimo and Lella Vignelli, the folks responsible for the NY subway signage
A respectable group of inductees indeed.

The article brought out that the One Club's first inductee was the famed Leo Burnett in 1961. Now, others include the likes of Steve Jobs, Sir Hegarty, Jeff Goodby, Ogilvy, Bernbach, Chiat, and all the names in advertising that we know and love.

And of course, some names we're not familiar with. But that's advertising for you.

In a world where advertising is constantly under attack by the general public, and the government when they need to blame something, it can be very nice to know that one's career was not in vain, or that you were appreciated for the things you and your work have accomplished. 

Congratulations to the inductees. They deserve it.
