Let’s Get Lost In Some Vintage Ads


Even though you might deny it, it won’t change the fact that you live in a world created by marketers. Advertising is a powerful force that has shaped our attitudes and behavior since the beginning of the 20th century when it got into radio, and the late 1940s when it got into television. Marketers have become a lot more clever these days but there’s something about the nostalgia that surrounds certain vintage ads. Specifically, it is the advertising of the 50’s and 60’s that is most aesthetically pleasing to me.  It seems every ad in that era was either a beautifully shot photograph or a stunning Rockwellian painting.  Not to mention the incredible attention given to layout and typography.

So let’s get lost in some vintage ads to see just how much (or little) things have changed.
