For more than 75 years, Young & Rubicam Advertising has delivered on its promise to be its clients' most valued partner, providing innovative, brilliantly executed ideas that transform brands and businesses. Superior brand knowledge, coupled with a creative philosophy of "inspired simplicity", make Y&R one of the world's most successful advertising agencies. Y&R Advertising came to life in 1923 when John Orr Young, an account executive, and Raymond Rubicam, a copywriter, formed their partnership. It was the first agency to emphasize the importance of sophisticated research in understanding consumers. Other industry firsts include the first color television commercial, the first 90-second television commercial, the first agency to venture into cable television, the first top 10 agency to design a web site for a client, and the first agency to produce a live cybercast on a client's behalf. Today the Y&R Advertising global network includes over 195 offices in 90 countries
