Saatchi & Saatchi

Here’s a photo of some bus stop marketing brilliance you might like

I don’t know about you, but I like outdoor advertising.

When done well, it’s creativity can stop you in your tracks. For example, do you remember the famous ‘Hello Boys’ campaign? Or how about the classic Saatchi & Saatchi campaign that is cited for helping the conservatives get elected?

Remember looking at Eva Herzigová?

Or how about this, if you’re old enough?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve not created much outdoor work during my career to date, aside a massive poster that sits on the side of Derby County Football Club’s iPro Stadium.

Anyway, I took this photo when I was stood at the bus stop on Thursday; as I was half-way through my awful bus commute.

I saw this bus stop poster for Morrisons. It immediately caught my attention.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think it’s great.

I’ve never seen a bus stop poster use real products before. Have you?

It achieved what so many posters, and other messages for that matter, fail to: it instantly got my attention. And the message was very clear: Morrisons is now cheaper.

Bravo to their marketing team.

By the way, when I was searching for the images to insert into this blog I found a blog showing some fantastic outdoor posters. And if you’re interested, click here. I particularly like the Miele example. Hope you enjoy them.
