15 Creative Crosswalk Advertisements

Published 14 years ago

When traditional advertising fails to attract people’s attention, it’s probably time for something new (and that doesn’t necessary  mean spending a lot of money). A good way to start is by choosing a different and even atypical medium to put your message, for example crosswalks!

Not only your message will be very well geographically targeted,  but also seen multiple times by the same people, and in the end it may even go viral on the Internet. Of course, guerrilla marketing requires more brain power than money, but it’s definitely worth a try!

Here is a list of 15 most creative crosswalk advertising examples – so be ready to milk some inspiration for your next advertising campaign!
