Meet the new Phyllis generation


Phyllis Robinson

As DDB’s first and only copywriter at its founding – and the first female copy chief in U.S. history – Phyllis Robinson broke all the rules and opened doors for many women (and men) who followed. She promoted an atmosphere of creative freedom and respect where people had the opportunity to take chances and where diverse opinions were valued and nurtured. We are proud to launch the Phyllis Project as a tribute to her vision, intelligence and trailblazing contributions to our industry. To read more on Phyllis, visit
