The History Of Advertising Trust

Advertisements painted by hand directly onto the brickwork of buildings were once a common sight in cities, towns and villages across the country. The rise of printed billboards soon led to their decline but many still survive, often faded, clinging to the walls that host them. These �Ghostsigns� provide a window into the past and evidence of the craftsmanship that once went into their production. However, they are disappearing fast, often due to weathering but also as a result of property development and demolition. For the last year a nationwide effort has been underway to photograph, research and archive the last survivors ...
It was first manufactured as a 'squash' by Dominic Ali, but later a carbonated drink version was put on sale in order to attract a new market. It contains the juice of grapes , raspberries and blackcurrants (in a 3% concentration), flavoured with herbs and spices. Vimto has also been made into a sweet (candy) and an ice lolly (ice pop). It is available both as a 'packaged good' - i.e., in cans and bottles via retail outlets - or as a dispensed soft drink - i.e., a draught (draft) drink in pubs, clubs, and restaurants. A subsidiary of Nichols plc , Cabana is the dispense arm of the company, and operates via a ...
BBC - Viewfinder: Ghost signs
Photography can be many different things but one of its central roles is to sell products. Stroll through any major city and it seems as though every surface is plastered with a photograph forming part of an advertisement. Yet there was a time when this was not so, a time when advertisements were often in the form of text, signs created by craftsmen. If you look closely you can still see the remnants of those times, and Tom Bland has been doing just that, using his camera to preserve the past in the present. Tom's parents are graphic designers and he remembers growing up surrounded by large drawing boards, kappa board and ... market research, surveys and trends
Why "Ghostsigns" are A Neglected Part of Cultural History
Somehow, defying the elements and the passage of time, a few fading wall signs of long-gone eras are still with us. David Bernstein ponders the paradoxes they present. ‘There stands the ghost of a great name,’ wrote Lucan, the Roman poet. He was referring to Pompey. Not the football club, but the general who also lost regularly – to Julius Caesar. Lucan’s invocation came to mind after I attended, at the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising, the launch last month of Ghostsigns, the new archive housed by the History of Advertising Trust. The progenitor is Sam Roberts, who six years ago confronted ... market research, surveys and trends


Advertising History
around the13th century. China has had paper making since the 1st century and block printing since the 9th century. According to Cao Yannong, these packaging ads were "made from the barks of mulberry." And used "elaborate black patterns, such as the forms of lotuses and clouds, are decorated on the paper. There are 70 Chinese characters on the top right of the paper which describes the variety, quality and characteristics of the commodity, and the address of the store is also printed on the paper. Those are quite similar features to modern ads" ( ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

TNA Throws in the Towel With Latest ECW Garbage
That quote pretty much sums up everything that has happened since Hogan and Bischoff took over, not to say that this recent mess is their fault. It's pretty obvious that Dixie wants them gone, but doesn't have the brains or the guts to send them away unless Paul Heyman is a guarantee.  If I were Paul Heyman, I wouldn't even go near the state of Florida for fear of being even remotely close to the people who are destroying the legacy of the company that he built, which changed wrestling. No, it didn't reach the top, but ECW remains an important part of wrestling history.  So what exactly is TNA ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

FRB: Speech, Greenspan -- The history of money -- January 16, 2002
The other day I told a spendthrift friend that I had to deliver a short address on the history of money. He responded, "I understand the history of money. When I get some, it's soon history." Fortunately, not all market participants are as spendthrift as my friend. Savers have been in sufficient abundance since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution to enable investment to further material well-being. Money, as a store of value, was an early facilitator of savings and one of the great inventions of mankind. Saving and investment is very difficult in a barter economy. The history of money is the history ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Conference on Historical Analysis & Research in Marketing (CHARM)
Distribution cost accounting is one of the most neglected areas of marketing history. Robert Kahn, the veteran and knowledgeable West Coast retailing consultant devotes the June 1998 issue of his monthly newsletter Retailing Today -RT to reprinting an article "Do Your Figures Fool You?" from the November 1950 issue of the Balance Sheet , the former journal of the old Controllers' Congress of the former National Retail Dry Goods Association. That article provides a very well argued case for the use of the "contribution to overhead" method of measuring departmental performance in department stores in ...
Google Answers: Name this sexy British ad
There was this TV show about different ads from around the world, and one from Britain knocked me out. It had a brunette dressed in black, with a strong British accent, talking to the camera about how adultery is defined as a husband imagining having an affair with another woman. Then she starts talking dirty, and asks any wives watching whether their husbands had just committed adultery. What’s the ad, and where can I find it? Clarification of Question by markabe-ga on 20 Aug 2002 22:55 PDT grimace-ga, it was 100% definitely an ad, which was featured on an Australian TV show which showed different commercials. ...
What Our Attitudes Communicate To Customers
Because my wife and I wanted to celebrate a special professional achievement, we asked the hotel concierge, "What restaurant do you recommend that's classy, but not overpriced?" She named one located a short cab ride away. "You'll like the food and the scenery. It's one of the newest places around here. I know the manager, and you'll get very personal service." Heeding her advice, we went there for dinner. The building was attractive, with an unobstructed view of the ocean. Our seafood was delicious, and prices were moderate. However, we decided--very ...
