These retro science and tech ads are interesting for two different reasons.
First, it’s curious to see how technology has progressed and what’s valued as important solutions in today’s technology world versus that of 50 years ago. The second interesting aspect of these retro ads, is that of creativity and design. Just scrolling through this Flickr photo group was a quick dive into retro design goodness.
Here’s a sample:
From the Science and Tech Ads Flickr group description:
“This is a random assortment of science ads collected from various science and tech magazines of the 50s and 60s. We’re particularly struck by how they have utilized the modernist aesthetic in a manner particularly appropriate for its subject matter.
Much of this work has only been credited to its advertising agency. We provide as much info about each as we can. If you have suggestions on its designer or illustrator, please comment!”
