Bob Wilvers, Art Director and Illustrator.
Bob Wilvers was the art director for the Carl Ally agency in the early 1960’s
when he developed a campaign for Salada Tea. The commercial featured little old ladies
on large Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the tag line …..
”Who says that Salada Tea is for little old ladies?” There’s a link to a poor copy of the original ad
In 1964, he became a founding partner and co-creative director at Jack Tinker & Partners,
with a client roster that included Coca-Cola, Gillette and Alka-Seltzer Plus.
He was an accomplished watercolor painter and illustrator whose work was featured in
several galleries and museums. Apparently Milwaukee based Wilvers was just 24
when he painted these.
Sadly there’s not a great deal of his work online. If anyone has any links to more of his beautiful
illustrations could they please let me know.
