For about three years, I took a look at ads from the ‘50s, ‘60s, ’70s and ‘80s, deconstructing them to tease out the cultural/historical/visual influences that may have played a hand in their creation. Nothing too heavy and all in good spirits.

Here’s a selection of posts that’ll give you a good idea of how I write (and think):
