Just look at this amazing 3-D Schweppes promotional display material for it’s Squashes. It not only does it provide a clever way to display it’s products but it also gives some indication of what is contained in the squash itself. Brilliant thinking.

      I’m sure for a retro lover these products would be off the shelves in no time : ) Also 50’s and 60’s illustration are even creeping into children’s books so I’m sure packaging must be using it too. What says you readers ? Have you noticed more vintage style advertising lately ?
