Imagine for a second that Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the like were available in the early 20th century. Could you imagine the style and design of their adverts? I stumbled upon What is Advertising? on Tumblr and saw a beautiful gallery of mocked up vintage ads! Check them out:
It’s an interesting concept and has been done extremely well. I love that even though the products are recent and requires up to date technology to use, the technology used in most of the adverts is what people would imagine technology to look like in the future (aka now). This is especially noticeable in the Skype and Facebook adverts – they look like something you’d see in a space ship!
