Sequential Circuits "Happy Holiday Season" ad, Keyboard 1984
Sequential "Happy Holiday Season" quarter page advertisement from page 85 in Keyboard Magazine December 1984.
I've been yapping recently about how rare company 'holiday-themed' ads are. My last blog post was about an Oberheim holiday ad that still managed to keep their products front and centre, but this ad from Sequential is even more special to me. Because it doesn't even mention a product. And because I get to see Sequential's cool logo/font.
To be fair, during this time period, I believe Sequential had a number of product advertisements constantly running in Keyboard, but it is still quite startling for me to see a manufacturer's ad that doesn't mention their products at all.
Sure, it is only a quarter of a page in size, and in black and white, and in the back half of Keyboard. But heck, I appreciate the fact that Sequential put in the time, effort, and $s to create this classy message for Keyboard readers.
And I'm also appreciating the holiday time I'm taking right now. Although, for the record, I am at work. Gah!
I'd like to extend my own best wishes for a happy holiday season.
Happy new year everyone!
