    This ad for Cointreau liqueur is stunningly simple. Cointreau is a much-loved brand of triple sec drunk as an aperitif and digestif. Its history stretches back to 1849 when the Cointreau distillery was set up by Adolphe Cointreau and his brother. The first bottles of Cointreau were sold in 1875, and it’s now estimated that 13 million are sold per year. For a product so revered and popular as this, the advertising artist need do no more than simply indicate the name of ‘the crystal liqueur’ in attractive lettering.

    This advertisement from 1940 was illustrated by Jean Adrien Mercier for liqueur company Cointreau. Born in 1899, Mercer was known as the ‘prince of poster artists’ in his time. More than an advertising artist, he worked for the movie industry as well, producing over a hundred iconic film posters. His use of bold, flat colour was inspired in part by his father’s work as a stained-glass window designer. His art contributed to the distinctive aesthetic style of Cointreau, for whom he was artistic director until 1965.
