Our Story… Robert J. Berns Advertising & Design

After serving in Japan at the end of World Warpaper writers II, Robert Berns was ready to start a new career. Along with his brother Harry, he enrolled at the Ray Vogue School of Design in Chicago. After graduation, Harry had an interview with Wilson Sporting Goods, but on the morning of his appointment he couldn’t find his portfolio. He took Bob’s with him and Harry got hired for the job. Within two years, Harry would bring Bob on the advertising staff with him at Wilson.

At Wilson they worked on designing the new uniforms for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The new steel insignia would be part of the helmet. Time and cost restraints kept the logo on one side of the mocked-up helmet. The Steelers approved of it as is, with the logo only appearing only on one side. From a design standpoint, it wasn’t meant to appear that way, but it looks great 60 years later…

In the mid 1960’s Bob Berns worked as the Art Director/Ad Manager for Ram Golf Corporation. He would design golf clubs, ads, hand letter bags and generate write my paper for me reviews golf grip designs. By 1968 he broke out on his own to start Robert J. Berns Advertising. He had a one room office and a single client, Ram Golf.

Today, we continue to build identities; developing logos, ads and creative marketing campaigns. We’re still a small design firm, but you never know…
