Somewhere in the deepest darkest recesses of my memory, something tells me this was the photo that accompanied a review of the NAP120 in, I think, Hifi For Pleasure. I think that’s reviewer Dave Berriman on the right.
Hi @charlie.henderson , one if your team a few months ago polled people on Naim clothing. Some of these-ads would make some great t shirts or polo,s?
I have not seen this before.
Chris Harris added it to a Naim Facebook group.
Yes, you need several bottles to numb the pain of the cost of the Naim.
Charlie…Whaoo,.now I get really jealous .
Prize for guessing the Muso 2 reveal?
My Favourite is
Genuine Naim photo too on Ilford paper hence no advert wording. I do have a CB250 as well!
Maybe add a feature to the new streamer displays to cycle the old ads
A few more I scanned from the collection a while back;
Well, this has made me think it might have all been so different, if I hadn’t of drawn this!!!
Dug out my original hand drawn sketches for naimcd001 which Paul S asked me create for the first naim disc released which was free with CD Review magazine in February 1992. Paul’s selection on this disc is very good and I often give this a disc a spin as it is quite exceptional.
As it was going to be ‘label’, I was a bit influenced by one of the ‘Blue Note’ designs and I liked the ‘Levi’s’ Red Tab’ too as a graphic - hence when it did eventually get used on printed material like the manuals and product guides I put it bleeding off at the edge of the page (like a tab).
A lot of my visuals were done very quickly before they were drawn accurately on the computer and these were no exception. I normally only submit one logo design at a time, to avoid clients picking one I least prefer but in this case there was some alternatives but I provided two versions of the one I liked and happily Paul and Julian went with the one I wanted them to!
All I provided was the logo artwork and position specification for the disc, and the magazine did the disc details layout - so they were responsible for the odd positioning of the other elements! The lettering colour I intended was meant to be white but I think either/or both PS and JV decided to change it.
Anyhow, this is where the design started and I couldn’t be prouder to sit listening to these World Class products with something I was part of, included on them. Thanks Paul and Julian!
I love these adorable calendar illustrations done by Julian’s wife?
My favorite ad is the one with Chrome 250 as a black piano key.
A little off topic… but every time I look at my chrome bumper system I’m happy that I moved ‘back’ from the current design. Just a shame there isn’t a full-width CB pre.
Just need to convince myself to buy some fraim for it to get it off the Atacama. One day.
Here a picture from where it all started.
