Press can be quoting us, using us as reference, or simply interviewing us. Adland was founded Åsk Dabitch Wäppling back in 1996. It began as a passion project, collecting recent ad campaigns, pairing up badland ads and as an outlet to adrant on recent happenings in the ad industry. As it grew, with a discussion mailing list and much mail generated daily, it became a database-driven website collecting great (and not so great) ads serving many caustic comments and editorials on the advertising industry. Some called it a blog, but we do not. The site has been used as resource or quoted by the New York Times (USA), Adweek (USA), Marketing Mag (Canada), the Library of Congress, Spiegel (DE), CNN Money (USA), Media Guardian (UK), Resumé (SE), Adformatie (NL), Campaign magazine (UK), Creativity (USA), Svenska Dagbladet (SE), Dagens Industri (SE), Brand Equity (IN), Børsen (DK) and many many more.

The "nifty little list" they speak of is my post here; Miss Mad Men? Get your ad-movie fix here 11 advertising movies reviewed.

 

Adland's Commercial-Archive now has over 40,000 commercials.

Bragtime! At last count we had 41497 quicktime commercials in total, so it's high time to hang up the brag-sign here. Adland's Commercial Archive, including the superbowl commercial archive now has over fourty thousand ads in it. Yikes! No wonder I keep having to get bigger servers, aye?

You can browse the archives by month and year or use the advanced search to find all commercials for "bud", for example. Just change the "bud" in that URL to what you want to search instead.
OR search commercials only WITH images via this link - no advanced options there.
