“Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing, but nobody else does.” -Stuart H. Britt

Whenever I go to the movies I arrive very early, not just to get the best seat, but to watch the previews.  From billboards, posters, cereal boxes to Super Bowl commercials, I have always been a fan of advertising.  In my career in advertising, a Creative Director once told me that the best ads aren’t the ones that look good, but the ones that communicateEVERY INDUSTRY has done their fair share of ADVERTISING.

My first promo card back in 2008, when I was about to launch The Art of Lax™.

Recently, I found these “Retro” lacrosse-themed-ads.  As an “Ad guy” and business owner, I just had to share it with the everybody–the lax audience.  I can go on with my personal art/design criticism but this IS NOT an art class.  I’ll just let these advertisements speak for themselves and hopefully, we’ll get some readers who remember seeing these and give their stories, as well.
