75+ Vintage Advertisements – Looking For Retro Inspiration?

July 6, 2013 · 2 comments

Vintage Advertisements usually refers to advertisements that where created at least 25 years ago, but you can also find beautiful vintage style advertisements that are fresh baked.

I think some of the most pleasing are from the 1950,s and 60’s. Such vintage advertisements had incredible layout and typography that attracted the attention of the crowd. It is no wonder that recently, retro and vintage advertisements are making a comeback with their historical and nostalgic value. The retro style is also popular for posters and flyers and even web designers use it in websites they create.

By looking at these retro vintage ads, I am sure that you can find new ideas to be used in advertisements of your own products or services. If you look carefully, you will find some old looking and outdated designs used effectively for advertising brand new and modern products. Sounds odd right? However, in some of the examples I have presented below, you will see modern products marketed through vintage advertisements. Some were entirely made by modern designers, but others might have been modified from genuine retro/vintage advertisements originating from your parent and grandparent’s era.

OK time to get amused and be inspired by the retro vintage advertisements I have presented in this post. Who knows, vintage advertisements might be the way to go for your succeeding viral ad campaign. If you have been toying with the idea of marketing through vintage advertisements, kindly share some of your thoughts with us through the comment section below. We will be happy if you can share this post with your friends as well.
