Before ad designers started leaning hard on Photoshop plugins and market-tested taglines they used their talent and, well, a lot of puns. What's your favorite vintage car print ad?
There are numerous styles to choose, from the text-heavy pamphlets of the 1920s through the WPA of the 50s and over-saturated neon line drawings of the 1980s. Personally, we love the copy-and-font driven magazine ads of the 1970s. One of the best examples of this is the 1973 BMW 2002 "Guts" ad. Just read the text:
Do you need only transportation? Then BMW is not for you. There are always the Swedish tractors, or one of those Oriental curiosities and so on.
Oh yeah clever Bavarian Motor Works!
