Willie Baronet was the owner and creative director of GroupBaronet (now MasonBaronet) from 1992-2006. He is currently the Stan Richards Professor of Creative Advertising at SMU’s Temerlin Advertising Institute where he teaches classes related to creativity and portfolio development. Willie has been buying and collecting homeless signs since 1993 as part of a long term art project titled “WE ARE ALL HOMELESS.” In 2014 he began a 31-day cross country trip to buy signs in 24 cities, and began filming a documentary about the process (Signs of Humanity, 2016). This project has been featured in dozens of international and local media, including Yahoo!
