Ads That Changed The World

Ads That Changed The World | #eklectic

The first newspaper ad in America came way back in 1704 when someone was trying to sell a house on Long Island.

Since then, the advertising industry has undergone a huge transformation.

Over the years, we’ve seen dozens of ads that have done much more than just convince us to buy a product or service. The very best campaigns have impacted the way we communicate and interact with one another, from the coffee breaks we enjoy, to clothes we wear to work, to the videos we share online.

Keeping that in mind, here are 14 ads that have shaped our culture.

The Medium Is the Message, 50 Years Later

This year marks the 50th anniversary of eclectic Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan's famous work, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man , which builds upon his famous aphorism: “The medium is the message.” Understanding Media propelled McLuhan into the realm of pop-culture priesthood. Twenty years ago, in the introduction to a re-print of Understanding Media , renowned editor Lewis H. Lapham wrote that much of what McLuhan had to say made a lot more sense in 1994 than it did in 1964, what with two terms of Reagan and the creation of MTV. Twenty years after that, the banality of McLuhan’s ideas have solidified their merit. Don't have a copy of McLuhan's Understanding Media? Get it here!

The History of Lorem Ipsum

The History of Lorem Ipsum


The History of Lorem Ipsum

If you’re a designer, this phrase is everywhere. Known as “filler text” or "dummy copy" or “Greek copy”, people use it to simulate the appearance of whatever text will ultimately be used in a design. This way, a designer doesn’t have to wait for the text to be written to format it, and they and the client aren’t distracted from the graphical or interactive elements of the design by reading the copy. At some point, likely in the middle ages, a typesetter had to make a type specimen book, to demo different fonts, and he got the idea that if the text should be insensible, so as not to distract from the page’s graphical features. So he took a handy page of non-Biblical Latin -- Cicero -- and scrambled it into mostly gibberish. “Lorem” isn’t even a Latin word -- it’s the second half of “dolorem,” meaning “pain” or “sorrow”. Thus Lorem Ipsum was born, and began its long journey to ubiquity. Source: The History of Lorem Ipsum Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

How Lego rebuilt its brand brick by brick

Lego, taking its name from ‘leg godt’, Danish for ‘play well’, began life in the early 1930s. In the 1950s the company, with founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s son Godtfred at the helm, introduced its system of play concept, with the interlocking plastic bricks we know today arriving in 1958. Through the introduction of its core principles of play, the company’s mission was, and still is, to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow, enabling children to learn through play – thus ‘playing well’. But Lego’s journey hasn’t been smooth, with decades of success preceding a brush with bankruptcy, followed by its meteoric rise in recent years to become the most powerful brand in the world, according to a February study published by Brand Finance.
