The Evolution of Digital Ads


With computers and the Internet came digital advertising. PointRoll, a digital marketing company, decided to take a stroll down memory lane, revisiting the history of digital ads.

Their history goes as far back as 1987, when Apple introduced the Macintosh which featured HyperCard, widely considered the first multimedia tool. Over time, digital ads have evolved from static images to interactive designs with the help of universally used tools as Quicktime, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and Flash.

The birth of social media and gadgets like the iPhone and the iPad created new opportunities for multimedia, location-based ads that span across platforms, making digital advertising as rich a field as it’s ever been.
