Ernie started his career on Madison Avenue in the late 1960’s. He was hired at Norman Levit Advertising to help prevent losing a major account, Decca Records. Ernie’s award-winning work in designing the Jesus Christ Superstar album not only won the account over, it changed his life forever. His creative genius was now known and creating demand.
Ernie’s drive and passion for excellence led him to a new chapter in 1970. He joined forces with Craig Braun, Inc. in New York. Knowing the importance of first impressions, he wanted to make a mark on his first assignment. The result has become an icon of the ages- the rule breaking tongue logo for The Rolling Stones and the rule-breaking Sticky Finger album.
Three months later Ernie was asked to open a satellite office in California where he would be the head art director. The hits kept coming for Ernie.. Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out," Cheech & Chong’s "Big Bamboo," and Captain Beyond among others. Ernie was at the top of his game and knew it was time to leave and start his own agency.
In 1972 he opened the legendary “Pacific Eye and Ear”. Over the next 14 years, he created another 183 album covers for rock legends like: The Doors, Aerosmith, The Bee Gees, The Guess Who, Black Sabbath, Jefferson Airplane, Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, and with the 2009 release of Burton Cummings new album makes 233 total albums designed to date.
He has received three Grammy nominations for his work, 10 Music Hall Of Fame awards, 4 awards of excellence from the Los Angeles Art Directors Club, and has been presented with 25 gold albums and a triple platinum album by some of the bands whose album covers he had designed.
Pacific Eye and Ear was now on the map forever - easily recognized as one of the top three album design companies in the country.
