See Anything Wrong with this Bus Ad

So my question to all you designers out there. . .

Do you see any problems with this bus ad that was recently spotted in Portland, OR?


I will post my comments next week.

    Phil, good point. But the one thing that I can't over emphasis is that keep it clean (less copy). You are probably not going to have time to write a phone number down but Kennedy wants you to remember their brand. I have my suggested layout in the next posting.

    Where is the telephone number?

    In an emergency your not going to go to a website to look up an emergency service - in fact you may not even have internet access. However knowledge of the phone number can be called straight away, or stored into a mobile on the go.

    Website address is sucky as well - doesnt really clarify what the firm does - would work better.

"Just a quick note to thank you for doing a very professional job with my business cards and the brochure that you created for my business.


I was in a large retail store today putting forth a proposal to the store owner to sell and display my fence post brackets. We had finished our discussion and I asked the buyer if he wanted a sample fence post bracket and he said 'no because the brochure has everything that I possibly need to know on it. It was very well done.'


Mike, I wanted to pass this tidbit on because we so often get only complaints.


Thanks again for your integrity and creative design."
