Ad Foundry: Iconic Ad Campaigns: Got Milk? | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it

"In 1993 , as Americans switched to Soft Drinks, Health Drinks and other beverages  the sales of Milk took an obvious hit. This was the time when dairy processors in California decided to get together to fund a non profit marketing board – well to market Milk obviously. 

 

The Marketing board – christened California Milk Processor Board , hired Goodby, Silverstein & Partners to come up with a campaign to market milk to the masses. Out of this exercise came the most successful and longest-lasting campaign of the CMPB – Got Milk?....

"We weren't going to turn around a 15-year decline in per capita in one year, but we did believe that at least for certain portions of the population, we could flatten it out and start to move it up," said Manning. Following Manning's lead, Jeff Goodby, the agency's co-founder and chief creative, had worked with a team of planners and creatives at his agency to create got milk?, a campaign that became one of the decade's most popular and critically-acclaimed ad campaigns. ......

How Not to Blow Up Your Computer (in 1993)

How Not to Blow Up Your Computer (in 1993) | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it

 

"Kim Komando has been teaching people to use computers (sorry, komputers) for decades -- she runs a komputer-themed radio call-in show, running for three hours each weekend.

But if we set our time machine to 1993, Komando released a series of "Komputer Tutor" VHS tapes, including one called Komputer Kindergarten that taught basic computer skills (DOS and Windows, and "what is a printer") to beginners. The good folks over at Everything is Terrible edited Komputer Kindergarten down into a highlight reel, just under three minutes. It's amazing. Seriously..."
