I recently stumbled upon these awesome old advertisements for the Container Corporation of America (CCA) while strolling through Eric Baker’s weekly collection of ephemera. From 1938 – 1967 the CCA put out these beautiful constructivist influenced advertisements touting themes like integration and responsibility. Walter Paepcke, an executive at CCA was a strong proponent of art and design. He brought in bauhaus designers like Herbert Bayer to promote his other projects such as the Aspen Institute. It’s great to see industrialists pursuing design and philanthropy.
Enjoy the weekend!
