Dan Johnson

Daniel E. Johnson
1935 - 2009

Dan Johnson was a United States Army Officer proudly serving in Korea from 1956-1958. He was an instructor at the school of advertising art in Kettering, Ohio and president of a leading design studio, Art Direction, for more than 17 years. He was the recipient of an international CLIO and fifteen Hermes awards from AAF - Dayton and was awarded the American Advertising Federation Silver Medal for lifetime achievement.

Dan was also a friend and mentor. The students who had the honor of having him as an instructor loved him, as did those who had the opportunity to work with him. The school of advertising art and family of Dan Johnson have started a Dan Johnson Student Scholarship Fund. My hope is to be able to make a donation to this years fund with a portion of the proceeds made from the sale of this shirt.

If you would like to contribute, please purchase a shirt or send your donation to: Dan Johnson Student Scholarship Fund c/o saa, 1725 E. David Road, Kettering, Ohio 45440
