Brisbane Transport

01 Aug 2007

In the category ‘goodies from down-under’ flies in this superb advertisement for… public transportation. This is by far the best ad campaign for local bus services I have ever seen. I love the angle of approach, the way it is has been produced and the idea behind it. You could easily make it cross-service and expand it to trains, airplanes, taxis and what not. A very adaptable concept.

    I don’t know why but the first picture made me think about the Annie Leibovitz photo of Scarlett Johansson for Disney

    The only peculiar thing about this ad campaign is that it still hasn’t seen the light of day in Brisbane.

    Brisbane Transport is struggling to meet current demand without advertising campaigns, so it is probably politically unwise to advertise for increased patronage!

    This campaign did run for about a month in the first half of 2006 [from memory].
    It was a cross promotion between Brisbane City Council buses and libraries.
