Saudi Arabian print ads have come a long way, from being straight out western copies showing stallions running in the desert to Arabian dhows sailing by the setting sun – stereotypical to what the West associates with the Arab World. Today however print adverts are coming up with highly local content that is creative and gets the message across whilst grabbing our attention.
But it is these vintage ads that we grew up seeing and in a way shaped our perception of print adverts. These ads evoke a sense of deep nostalgia. Brace yourselves to witness a jolly bygone era.
