What Advertising History Can Teach Us About Tomorrow

12 June 2017

Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising, 111-117 Lancaster Road, London W11 1QT

The advertising industry is seemingly transformed beyond all recognition, with programmatic buying, targeted use of social media and even the incorporation of virtual reality into campaigns. But the modern era owes more to the traditions and craft skills of previous generations than we often care to admit.

How can the wisdom of advertising practitioners of the past influence the world of Snapchat and Oculus Rift?

What you will learn

  • The parallels between successful advertising campaigns of the past and those of the modern era
  • The importance of powerful storytelling and arresting messages – both past and present
  • How current strategies such as ‘native advertising’ and content creation can trace their origins to the past
