Hello, my name is Thomas Thwaites, and I have made a toaster. So begins The Toaster Project. This epic My Story details the foolish, insane and sometimes silly journey of Thwaites as he reflects on our modern consumer culture while building a seemingly simple electronic appliance, entirely from scratch.
Can a person in the 21st century create an everyday object?

The TV series Mad Men does a great job of capturing the golden era of advertising. History books characterize the 60's at a time when consumers eagerly devoured every claim an advertiser served up. Ahh... those were the good old days for marketers.
Today, marketing is a lot more challenging. What's changed? You have! Consumers understand that many (if not most) of the advertising claims are embellished, exaggerated or just plain untrue. This consumer skepticism has changed the face of good marketing.
With that as background, I was clicking through the website of one of our largest competitors when I was struck that I was looking at classic 1960s-style advertising. While not bias-free, I'll give a friendly poke and prod to my competitor and try to offer my best advice to anyone who wants to advertise in the 21st century.
Join me as I dissect and inspect the advertising messages of one of our largest competitors.
One look and you'll want to build your own!
