Food and drink During the poster boom, at the end of the 19th Century, Paris burst into life with colourful ads for circus and stage productions. At this time Paris was the artist and cultural centre of Europe. The Art Nouveau movement dominated the designs of poster artists led by Jules Ch�ret and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. During the 19th Century household items were sold from bulk containers and it wasn't until the beginning of the 20th Century that firms began to market packaged goods under brand names. At this time there was an increasing emergence of numerous fledging companies, such as Bovril, Colmons, Heinz and Kelloggs. All of which are significant brand names today.

The Coca-Cola company was quick to realise the value of celebrity endorsement and opera diva Lillion Nordica was one of the first celebrities to appear in the campaign. She was followed by many other major film and pop stars. In 1916 Coca-Cola established their distinctively contoured "hobble skirt" bottle which became one of Coca Cola's trademark and contributed to the success of their already flourishing campaign. In 1925 the first 4-colour billboard advertisement appeared, featuring a uniformed "Ritz Bay" carrying a tray of frosted Coke, with the headline "5,000,000 drinks a day." Between 1928 and 1935, the American artist Norman Rockwell created 6 scenes for Coca Cola in this characteristic "everyday life" style. ...read more.
