Ted Bell

USA flag (1947 - )

Ted Bell, now a full-time writer, was one of the leading talents in advertising, having won every award the industry offers, including numerous Clios and Cannes Gold Lions, and, as Worldwide Creative Director of Y&R, the Grand Prix at the prestigious Cannes Festival.

A native Floridian, Bell graduated from Randolph-Macon College in Virginia and is a former member of the college's Board of Trustees. Bell began his advertising career at Doyle Dane Bernbach, New York, as a junior copywriter in the early seventies. By age 25 he'd sold his first screenplay and become the youngest vice president in the storied history of the creative powerhouse, DDB.

In 1982 he joined Leo Burnett Co., Chicago, as a creative director. He was named President, Chief Creative Officer just four years later, in 1986, at age 40. Credited with developing numerous innovative and award-winning advertising campaigns, Bell joined Young & Rubicam, London, in 1991 as Vice Chairman and Worldwide Creative Director. After 10 years at Y&R, Bell retired in 2001 to write full time. Bell holds an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree from Kendall Collage in Michigan. He lives in Palm Beach, Florida, and Aspen, Colorado with his wife, artist and political consultant, Page Lee Hufty.
