Classic Advertising in Southeast Asia

December 18, 2009

Be careful with the Kaminomoto

This month’s Q&A subject, John Archer, was so full of stories about the old days of print advertising in Southeast Asia, we had a difficult time editing down the article. Something that wasn’t mentioned in the print article was that notorious ad man Neil French actually worked under John when he fist came to Asia.

If you’re looking for some examples of the “adventurous” advertising that John mentioned, you can find some great retro ads and the stories behind them at Neil French’s personal website. Included are his famous pieces for Chivas Regal, Kaminomoto and XO Beer that originally ran in Singapore’s The Straits Times.
