Vintage Porsche Ads

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Came across these amazing Porsche Ads from the 80’s. Lovely use of typography and image perspective which visually gives a sense of speed. The ads are fun and playful, a stark contrast to the yuppie teutonic image of porsche today. Cheeky slogans & imagery for the flashy buyers, detailed descriptive fine print for the engineering types. A nice homage to the brand since many purists consider the water cooled 993 series 911s the ultimate porsche. More after the jump…

For the Talking Heads new live album designer Olli Hannonen was hired to design the vinyl jacket. The simple marriage of a circle on a square sleeve is iconic. Only when you look at the details you realize the thought put into the circular rings. Each ring represents song lengths as the Talking Heads progress through their live show.
