"Mad Men's" Chevy Vega Pitches Vs. What Actually Ran

Don and co. won a big account in episode 6 — Chevy. Here's a look at what the ad campaign for the mysterious "XP-887" car actually looked like.

 

 

"..The car sold well at first (so this ad campaign must have helped), however, over time the Vegas developed huge problems. So much so that the Vega has been called "the worst car ever made in America," while Popular Mechanics once referred to it as the car that "nearly destroyed GM.""

1960s Braun Products Hold the Secrets to Apple's Future

1960s Braun Products Hold the Secrets to Apple's Future | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it

2008 marked " the 10th Anniversary of the iMac, the computer that changed everything at Apple, hailing a new design era spearheaded by design genius Jonathan Ive. What most people don't know is that there's another man whose products are at the heart of Ive's design philosophy, an influence that permeates every single product at Apple, from hardware to user-interface design. That man is Dieter Rams, and his old designs for Braun during the '50s and '60s hold all the clues not only for past and present Apple products, but their future as well:.."

Cover Girl Makeup: A Classic Story of Women in Advertising | Double X Economy

Cover Girl Makeup: A Classic Story of Women in Advertising | Double X Economy | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it

"back in the day, it was unthinkable that the marketplace had anything to offer women (because Marxism had feminist theory by the throat).  And the very idea that women might be empowered through work in the cosmetics industry was blasphemy.  Indeed, feminist critics (and the popular press) just assumed that men made beauty advertising, as a thinly veiled attempt to keep women down.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that Cover Girl makeup had been started by a woman named Mary Ayres, who had worked her way up from being a secretary at a major ad agency just after World War II.  As the story unfolded in the tapes I listened to while sitting in that venerable museum, I was dumbfounded to learn that teams of women had been involved in this campaign from that day forward. I found that the men had taken (or been given) most of the credit. But the women had struggled with them to try and make the commercials more inclusive (less blonde-with-blue-eyes, more people of color), as well as more realistic. And these struggles occurred alongside the push for workplace equality in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Cover Girl’s heyday (and mine).  So, these women worked for their own equality, while they produced this campaign. All along, however, the campaign was intended to appeal to the ordinary American girl and, as such, had an ethos that was quite different from other cosmetics advertisers...'

Veronika Vasilyeva's curator insight, February 15, 2013 2:37 PM

In the past, not very far than 10 years marketplace had anything to offer women online. This was a real buty cutter for specially bussiness women who are short of time in between work and household. 

After internet widely started to be used in several countries online bussiness grow was tremendous and it helped specially to women who cares about their beauty.

Today lucky women have everything infront of them just a click away. They can chose every beauty product online while they are working, even during their very important meetings.

Cosmetic world now is the biggest industry for beauty focused men and women but finding best and trustable sites is a matter. Among several stores and shopping sites I can reccomend well known one of the good retailer Strawberrynet.com. There are more sites which everybody can reccomend but finding the sites that is commonly accepted and trustable would not be very easy. Beauty is matter in terms of finding good shopping platforms.
