The advertising world is an ever-evolving landscape shaped by the tides of technology, culture, and consumer behavior. At Gibson Design, we have not only witnessed these changes but have also been at the forefront of adapting to them. This journey through the decades of advertising offers a glimpse into the past and our approach to harnessing the future.

The 1950s and 1960s: The Golden Age Regarded as the “Golden Age” of advertising, this era was characterized by the rise of TV advertising. Catchy jingles and memorable slogans became the norm. At Gibson Design, we draw inspiration from this era’s ability to create lasting brand memories, emphasizing the power of storytelling in our campaigns.

The 1970s and 1980s: The Age of Segmentation These decades saw advertisers moving towards market segmentation, focusing on specific demographics. It was a time of bold, direct messaging. Our team at Gibson Design uses this lesson in specificity to tailor messages that resonate deeply with targeted audience segments.

The 1990s: The Digital Dawn The 90s ushered in the digital revolution. Email marketing and the first banner ads appeared, opening new avenues. Gibson Design embraced these digital tools early, recognizing their potential for creating more personalized, interactive advertising experiences.

The 2000s: The Social Media Surge Social media transformed advertising into a two-way conversation. Brands could now engage directly with consumers. At Gibson Design, we leverage social media to build communities around brands, fostering loyalty and real-time feedback.

The 2010s and Beyond: The Age of Personalization and AI Data analytics and AI have brought about hyper-personalization in advertising. We at Gibson Design harness these technologies to create advertising that’s not just seen but felt, crafting messages that are relevant and engaging to each individual.

The evolution of advertising is a tapestry of innovation, creativity, and adaptation. At Gibson Design, our journey through these changes is marked by a commitment to staying ahead of the curve, ensuring that our clients’ messages reach and resonate with their audiences.
