Worlds Away

Ads via Ads of the World 

Advertising in 1950. Times have changed.  While girls, quotes and slang dominate our tricky and clever advertising of the 2000s a quick trip back to the past reveals a much simple form of advertising. Where magnificent, splendid and striking adjectives dominate the copy, lets not even mention the horrifically corny cartoon base.

I find this not shocking but its something. As someone who has attended school for writing for more than 4 years I have always been told to write simply, remove that fancy adjective.

My favourite of the bunch? The skype ad.
