Another 'people ad' for Everything Audio, 1989. The people pictures continued to get excellent results. In the magazines in which these ads ran, there were often no other pictures of people at all outside of editorial. In the other ads? Zip. It now seems obvious. People are, after all, interested in people. Each ad told the company's story in a different way, positioning them as 'hands-on' users of the gear offered rather than just sellers. https://www.ericwrobbel.com/art/eathree.htm Another 'people ad' for Everything Audio, 1985.

More in my series of “people ads” for Everything Audio. The people pictures continued to get excellent results for the company. Each ad told the story in a different way as I positioned the client as a knowledgable “hands-on” user of the gear offered, rather than just a seller. In the magazines in which these ads ran, there were often no other pictures of people at all, save for the occasional shot of a person, usually in editorial, standing there surrounded by a sea of electronics gear. In the other ads? Zip. It now seems obvious. People are, after all, interested in people. Even techs! Stylisticially, these ads differed, yet were related. The first one shows some Memphis influence (Ettore Sotsass).
