Written in response to awards received by deYong Ginsberg Weisman Bailey, an Irvine advertising agency created in early 1988 by principals of the former Irvine branch office of N W Ayer, a national agency. The awards were for projects done before N W Ayer closed its branch.
I read your article about the Orange County Ad Club's awards dinner with a grim resolve to respond ("Briefcase," March 10). Attached is a copy of a letter sent to Bob Guzman, Ad Club president, voicing my complaint over the irrationality of deYong Ginsberg Weisman Bailey receiving awards for work done by another agency. Mr. deYong's flip remark only emphasizes the egotistical and arrogant attitude both he and the Ad Club have displayed over this matter.
