67 Minimalist Marketing Techniques

From Minimalist Workout Ads to Talking Speech Bubble Ads

— October 17, 2013 — Art & Design
When it comes to capturing the attention of viewers, utilizing simple imagery can go a long way, and these minimalist marketing techniques are showcasing how simple design can produce a strikingly long-lasting impression.

While print ads and commercials are notorious for showcasing segments with intricate designs or complex story lines, these minimalist techniques are showcasing a much more modern and clear-cut way to connect with consumers. A little can go a long way when it comes to advertising a product, and by simply showcasing one image, design or piece of text, marketers are able to create a much more intriguing and memorable ad.

From fading forest ads to iconic mustache ads, these minimalist marketing techniques are sure to attract modern consumers with their use of simple imagery and contemporary design.
