40 Great Ad Slogans and How To Create Your Own

Phrases That Define Advertising Campaigns

An advertising slogan is a concise phrase that defines an advertising campaign. The most effective and catchy slogans are imprinted in the collective mindset of the masses so that they automatically associate the phrases with the products for the longest time. Some advertising slogans have seeped so deeply into the public consciousness that they become much more than just some catchphrases to sell some products.

For instance, the legendary Nike slogan “Just Do It” has emerged from its advertising shadows to become a mantra of life for many people. Some advertising slogans have such a long life that they become part of pop culture. It has been close to 30 years since Brooke Shields said “You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins… nothing,” but many people still remember her in those advertisements. Since then, Calvin Klein jeans have become “sexy.” Just like other forms of pop culture, advertising slogans can be just as iconic in defining a generation. Here are some of the most memorable advertising slogans.
