The advertising industry lost one of its great creatives a week ago, when John Webster died at 71 of a sudden heart attack. Considered one of the best admen of all time, Webster earned his reputation as the head of the creative department at Boase Massimi Pollitt (BMP, later BMP/DDB which is now DDB/London), and worked there until the end of his life. Among his work, which includes two Cannes Grand Prix that contribute to his standing as the most awarded creative in Europe, was the British classic "Martians" for Cadbury Smash, John Smith's "Dog Tricks" and several children's books.
