Bus Stop Advertising – Being Closer to People

In order to be efficient the advertising needs to be as close to the target audience as possible. That is why it enters our homes through television and awaits us everywhere on the streets. Bus stops have always been valuable media for commercial and social advertising: there are always people around bus stops and those, waiting for a bus to arrive, usually have some time to scrutinize the advertising displayed. Sometimes, bus stop advertising inspires “street artists”, who do not lose the opportunity to amend the project with their own inscriptions or graphics to demonstrate their own philosophy, ethics, or sense of humor, but this is another story, of course…

Advertising itself is as creative today as it has never been before. It is approaching art in many aspects, including unique concepts and attractive artful designs. So we decided to show you some examples of really interesting bus stop advertising. Below you will find a variety of bus stop advertising, from common and omnipresent Coca-Cola and iPod ads to examples of social advertising, addressing anorexia, or calling passengers to remember about their human origin. By the way, in many situations it is the complementing street art, interesting location, or unusual coincidences rather than bus stop advertising itself that make it look really interesting, attractive, and amusing…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
