    There are so many completely ridiculous ads out there from the 1950's and 60's full of misogyny and crazy claims and the image of a perfect life that's totally unrealistic. However, the imagery and the style of these decades is timeless and powerful and sometimes funny.

The second ad is for Super Douche Dishwashing Liquid and was inspired by an actual shampoo ad from the 50's which featured a woman who was about to kill herself no less than 3 different ways because of a bad hair day. Amazing. All of the styling, layout, photography, product design and copy were done by me. Read Less
