The Intricate Designs of the Last Century Packages in 30 Gorgeous Examples

Advertising and branding has come a long way since the early days but the reality is that nowadays I feel that the quality has decreased a lot. I feel that in its inception, advertising was if not more honest, then more interesting. If you watched Mad Men then you know that back then, the advertisers had the courage to stand up and demote client’s ideas if they suck.

Package design made in the beginning of this century was more art than consumerism and they really worked hard in order to deliver impressive designs. The current was to create stunning and intricate designs because they realised that in order to make a sell, you need to impress your clients.

In the following images you can see some extraordinary examples of package and label designs made for promoting various products from cigarettes and all the way to automobiles.
