Graphic designer and marketer Sam Henri Gold has compiled an incredible archive of Apple's promotional material dating back to the 1970s, which he has uploaded to a Google Disk folder for people to review. The folder contains hundreds of videos and pictures of the company's products, and it's well worth the time to take a trip down the memory.
Gold has carefully organized this miniature museum online for decades and years, allowing visitors to browse and see how Apple marketed itself over the years. The archive contains mainly the company's TV ads, but there are also promotional features, product photos and print ads as well. Gold notes that he started filing the videos a few years ago after the "All Apple Video" channel on YouTube stopped updating.
I've decided to open my Apple video store via Google Drive as a sorta test flight to make sure all dates are accurate and to make sure I haven't missed something, check it out and enjoy! Feedback requested 🙂 https://t.co/B2U7KlzZ9n pic.twitter.com/G1iLMmFHJN

The archive contains a large selection of material . The iconic 1984 Super Bowl ad from Ridley Scott is there, but there is also a place that showed the Apple PowerBooks location in Independence Day . But the archive also goes all the way up today so you can look at everything from the early ads to Apple's iTunes software, the original iPod, iPhone and iPad. Gold also featured a number of videos the company made to announce various products that you would look at the company's major keynotes, speeches by Steve Jobs and other business leaders, and more.
All in all, it is a very cool trip down the memory road for Apple fans, one that you can spend hours looking through.
