1990 - 1999 Evolution into a media company
Advertising sees growth at an almost inflationary rate. The company focus is on prime sites, maximum occupation rates and strategically planned, continuous growth. Negotiations with the authorities regarding GK92 (the city of Zurich's bill posting plan) are skilfully handled. Plakanda is the second biggest player on the Swiss out-of-home advertising market.
1980 - 1989 From small-scale operator to the company
The 1980s mean the introduction of the fixed advertising budget. Plakat & Propaganda AG adopts an approach that focuses more on custom solutions and a sustainable portfolio, expanding outwards from its centre in Zurich
1960 - 1979 Plakat & Propaganda AG breaks the APG monopoly on concessions
The economic recovery (the “Wirtschaftswunder”) combined with increasing internationalization and the shift of emphasis from product information to image advertising, ensure that operators of poster sites enjoy further growth. After 50 years, the right to post advertising in the districts of Zurich finally goes to Plakat & Propaganda AG.
1940 - 1959 The pioneering years
Although manufacturing suffers a major downturn in Switzerland during the war in the 1940s, advertising continues – even if only to inform consumers which products were still around.
1920 - 1939 The founding years
The company is founded during the Roaring Twenties – a period characterized by the avant-garde movement in art and the emergence of mass production. The poster is quickly becoming the main advertising medium. The company's competitive spirit quickly becomes evident, as it battles for every single billboard site.
