Early Mercedes-Benz Ads and Posters

The best of both brands: in 1924, Benz & Cie. and Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft merged to pool their interests. Julius Ussy Engelhard designed this poster for the merger in 1924. It was also replicated as an advertisement in 1925.



Red star and Silver Arrows: this poster proclaimed the double victory for the Mercedes-Benz race cars at the 7th Masaryk Grand Prix in Br├╝nn in 1937.



Not just cars: the design of this advertising poster for "DMG B├╝romaschinenfabrik GmbH" from 1923 shows the DMG signet and the Mercedes star as trademarks next to each other.
