15 Swiss Advertisements from the 1980’s

Apples, bank accounts, chocolate and potatoes: These were some of the Swiss staples chosen for the first print advertisements in color. Thanks to a new technique called chromolithography, the 1980's were sort of a playground for more cost efficient ad campaigns in color.
