I was surfing the net for images to use for a project and I came across a site that traces Camel Adds from its beginning.
I’ve always been interested in the history of advertisement. Not just for the sake of its visual means but in how they are molded by the culture around them; and at the same time they define the cultural norm. The science of advertisement is cut throat - they want your attention just with in a glance and they want you to buy, the glance there after.
Anyways, here are some images tracing the history of the beloved Turkish Blend.
1920's - This is when they started advertising toward young women, until then some states did not allow women to smoke at all.
Camel begins to use real photo's to make it more believable and athelets to "promote a healthy image".
