EXAMPLE: 10 Crazy Ads from History
The 1950′s through the 1970′s were a strange time in advertising. Women were stuck in the kitchen, casual racism was abundant and crazy ads were everywhere. Below is a list of crazy vintage ads that will make you grateful for modern standards, or perhaps nostalgic for the ‘good ole days’. While reading this list, imagine if you would, each crazy ad’s impact on the public if it were to run unedited in popular print publications today. Without further ado (as if most of you even read this paragraph) here are 10 Crazy Ads from History, a vintage lesson in ridiculous marketing.

Focus On One Chosen Idea
Experiment With Type
I used Typekit and Typecast to help me experiment with various typefaces, which gives me a lot more flexibility than Photoshop.
Experiment With Colours
I did a sanity check to make sure something similar does exist, and purchased the font(Parisine Sombre) that I decided to go with.
- Play glyph to represent running, or starting something. Runnable runs server-side code in the browser.
- The multiple overlapping circles represent discovery and activity. We aim to help developers discover code, APIs, modules and rapidly prototype.
Taking a Break
As I finalize my projects for Kerry’s Advance Design class, I sat back for a moment and was just amazed at all I have done this semester! It is really quite empowering to have it all laid out before me and just look at it and be impressed…
