Happy Easter: 60 Years of Peeps – Charles Apple Blog

60 Years of Peeps

Here is another one from Charles Apple’s blog. [SOURCE]

Charles says:

“What a scream.

I don’t know for sure who designed it, but my old pal Doug Jessmer — who works there now — tells me:

I’m fairly sure that was Thomas Marcetti Jr. I know it was on his screen a bit the last few days.

Whoever worked on this page: Please let me hear a peep from you.

The Peeps Detail

…Heh.


UPDATE – 4:15 p.m. PDT

Executive editor Bonita Burton tells us:

Thanks! Thomas Marcetti, Managing Editor of Design & Graphics with Designer Amy Johstono. It was Thomas who spotted the story and knew how it would resonate with our largely retiree readership who grew up with the candies.

Average daily circulation for the Villages Daily Sun is 44,624.

That page is from the Newseum. Of course.”
