Back in 2009, thanks to the genius of Tom Demetriou and his team at Barkley Ad Agency in Kansas City, Missouri, Johnson County Library launched the Courier Truck Campaign. Our trucks serve as moving billboard that promote classic books. Captain Ahab’s Seafood, Kafka’s Pest Control. Benjamin Button’s Diaper Service, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’s Pharmacy. Get it? HILARIOUS, right? Plus, what a great way to brand the library and remind people of the books that captured their imaginations. Dang. Good stuff. BUT, it’s time for an update. From now through June 30, we are asking the PEOPLE to submit their ideas AND designs.
Use one of these titles as the inspiration for your moving billboard. We encourage you to be as clever, creative and inspiring as possible.
Grimm’s Fairy Tales
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Around the World in Eighty Days
The Jungle Book
So, get to pondering and be clever. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with, what with this highly inspirational list and all.
