Today in 1911, artist Jackie Ormes was born. The first African American woman to be a professional cartoonist, Ormes’ characters Torchy Brown, Candy, Patty-Jo, and Ginger were featured for decades in African American newspapers. In the late 1940s, a Patty-Jo doll was manufactured, “an African American doll with all the play features children desired: playable hair, and the finest and most extensive wardrobe on the market, with all manner of dresses, formals, shoes, hats, nightgowns, robes, skating and cowgirl costumes, and spring and winter coat sets, to name a few.”
We enjoyed working with National Women’s History Museum and we are continuing with them in the marketing of the spots directed by Catherine Hardwicke. We also provided them with a script for the next PSA and they loved it, so now let’s see when we can produce with them as well as post. We love working creatively with our clients and grateful for the opportunity when it arises. Check out their official Facebook and Twitter.
