Ad Agency Revamps Craigslist Ads
Need to add some punch to your online listing? This fun-loving group of agency folks has your back
Craigslist is infamous for its spare look. Founded by Craig Newmark in 1995 as an email list and then a web-based service in the San Francisco, it took until 2000 before it even started expanding to other cities. Now, it's considered an essential service, especially for newcomers to many cities. But even today, the site doesn't seem to be aiming to impress, and perhaps it doesn't have to. Aside from the interface interventions many designers have attempted, there's now a group of feisty advertising creatives aiming to prove what a little actual marketing can do for the users of the site. Classify Advertising is a free, brand-new service put together by three young advertising creatives that aims to illustrate just what a difference engaging and professional ads can make.
