100 Ideas That Changed Advertising

A chronicle of the key ideas that have shaped the adverts we see everyday, 100 Ideas That Changed Advertising offers a fascinating insight into an ever-changing and fast moving industry. Arranged broadly chronologically, the book looks at the overnight revolutions, the flashes of inspiration, and the long-term evolutions that advertisers have wrought upon their industry. Author Simon Veksner guides us through the key ideas behind these changes, from the development of the first advertising formats and the history of branding, to the creative revolutions of the 1960s and the digital age. Looking forward, the book considers the most recent thinking in reaching new audiences, including the rise of neuromarketing and the latest behavioural economics. Illustrated with hundreds of examples of adverts and explaining their power to inspire, delight, and annoy, but above all, to make us buy, the book is an absorbing guide to a turbulent industry.

The Art of Advertising

Advertisers in the nineteenth and early twentieth century pushed the boundaries of printing, manipulated language, inspired a new form of art and exploited many formats, including calendars, bookmarks and games. This collection of essays examines the extent to which these standalone advertisements - which have survived by chance and are now divorced from their original purpose - provide information not just on the sometimes bizarre products being sold, but also on class, gender, Britishness, war, fashion and shopping. Starting with the genesis of an advertisement through the creation of text, image, print and format, the authors go on to examine the changing profile of the consumer, notably the rise of the middle classes, and the way in which manufacturers and retailers identified and targeted their markets.

Advertising Shits in Your Head

Advertising Shits in Your Head calls adverts what they are--a powerful means of control through manipulation--and highlights how people across the world are fighting back. It diagnoses the problem and offers practical tips for a DIY remedy. Faced with an ad-saturated world, activists are resisting, equipped with stencils, printers, high-visibility vests, and utility tools. With case studies from both sides of the Atlantic, this book showcases the ways in which small groups are taking on corporations and states at their own game: propaganda. This international edition includes an illustrated introduction from Josh MacPhee, case studies and interviews with Art in Ad Places, Public Ad Campaign, Resistance Is Female; Brandalism, and Special Patrol Group, plus photography from Luna Park and Jordan Seiler.

In Join or Die, Patrick Gilbert shares how he transformed AdVenture Media into a modern, automation-driven advertising powerhouse.
