The Recession Adds Appeal to Monochromatic Art Forms

— December 9, 2008 — Art & Design
Monochromatic marketing still holds appeal today, decades after we were introduced to the remarkable innovation that is colored media. From black and white commercials, to black and white print ads, these campaigns prove that Old Hollywood glamor still has, and likely always will have, tremendous sales appeal.

Cycle through the slides below to get a feel for the way modern ad agencies and designers are using the appeal of black & white imagery to entice their audiences.
