Vintage Ad : Quaker Oats - Rare Print Ads

Quaker Oats company was started in 1901 by amalgamation of 4 cereal milling companies.

  • Quaker Mill Company of Ravenna,Ohio.:  Henry D. Seymour, one of the founders of Quaker Mill company, trademarked the Quaker brand in 1877, making it the first registered trademark for a breakfast cereal. Though none of the founding members were Quakers , the image was chosen, for the Quakers represented purity, simplicity and quality as per the encyclopedia article that Seymour was inspired by.
  • A cereal mill in Iowa
  • The German Mills American Oatmill Company, owned by the "The Oatmeal King"
  • The Rob Lewis & Co. American Oats and Barley Oatmeal Corporation.
The 'Quaker Oats' man is not modeled after a real person and does not have a name. Though within the company he is called 'Larry'

Charles C. Ebbett - Lunch atop a skyscrapper: An inspiration

Charles C. Ebbett's iconic picture titled " A Luncheon atop a Skyscraper ( New York construction workers lunching on a crossbeam)" was taken on the 69th floor during construction of the GE Building at the Rockefeller Center in 1932. It has been a source of inspiration for several ad campaigns globally.

The outdoor advertisement of Lego, titled " Builders of Tomorrow" was released in June 2007, by Jung von Matt Advertising Agency. It won Cannes Gold in 2007.

 Sony also draws inspiration from Charles C Ebbetts vintage photograph, using the tag line: In photography: Timing is everything.
 The other ads of Sony camera coming soon on this blog.

With Volkswagen Girder priced so low, the team at DDB Milan has shown that the target audience for the product transcends all social classes. It entices the blue collar class also to go for Volkswagen Girder. The image of an empty construction bar and a tag line that "unfortunately the word has already spread" speaks for itself..

Print Ad: Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van

Ad for the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van, trying to indicate the extra space in the van. The ad is slightly weird for me because , the spatially challenged person that I am, I find it difficult to understand if the ad shows the entire Van Size or just the size of the back of the van.
