We tend to think of the 1980s and 1990s as a simpler, more innocent time. Was Malaysia really like how we remembered it then? Join Alvin Teoh, Executive Creative Director of Naga DDB and Kat Rahmat, Strategic Planner of Geometry Global as the two advertising professionals look back at old advertisements and industry trends to gain a better understanding of the era. What can a revisitation of Malaysia's visual culture in these decades tell us about the general psyche, politics and policies influencing Malaysians then? How different was it making a campaign in the 90s versus today?
