Retro VW Advert Designs

If you are a regular visitor to the Eightyone Design Blog, I am sure you are aware that both Steve and I are particularly passionate about retro and vintage artwork. Team this up with our love for VW campervans (we have blogged about our own and have another blog dedicated to them as well!) and you get some of our favourite adverts ever created! These retro VW adverts are clean, simple and each one sends a clear message to their audience. The sense of continuity is spot on and their word play and copy really does set the standard (if you can put up with the sexism!).

There are a few excellent Flickr groups dedicated to vintage car adverts that are definitely worth checking out:

We are thinking of purchasing a couple of adverts for our studio wall, does anyone know where we can purchase them from? Any favourites anyone?

    Beautiful adverts, I love retro and vintage designs as we don’t see this style much lately! The ‘if the world looked like this’ ad is awesome.

    How did you manage to find so many great adverts?

  • Lu says:

    Hi Danny, I spent quite a while searching for the images, they all link back to where I found them, a combination of random websites and Flickr!

    Glad you like them!

    hey any idea who designed these adverts, im considering doing someting to do with retro advertising for my A2 level personal essay and practical work. Plus i am actually in love with campervans.

    Hey Lauren,

    Afraid I’m not too sure who originally designed these adverts. Good luck with your A2 Level personal essay.

    Thanks for stopping by!
