Reverse Graffiti is a new marketing trend implemented by companies such as IBM, GreenWorks, and now, SEPTA. In partnership with the esteemed Mural Arts Program of Philadelphia, Philly’s grimiest sidewalks will be put to good use with this new effort as part of SEPTA’s new “Go Green” campaign.
As seen above, this reverse graffiti technique literally powerwashes dirt off of the sidewalks and walls while leaving an imprint of a SEPTA Green message and a corresponding Green design. For more on SEPTA’s “Go Green” campaign, you know the routine.

Massive shout out to Visual Culturist Chris Gato for the goods.

The 51st Annual Grammy Awards will be in full effect tonight. The advertising campaign developed for this year’s awards warrants recognition given the uninspiring ad campaigns of years past. Let’s see if this new look will carry over to the actual event.
The fully integrated campaign includes TV, out of home, print and interactive advertisements and will highlight the songs that have influenced the people that have, in turn, influenced us. Portraits of diverse musicians — including Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, and Thom Yorke of Radiohead — are created using song titles that have inspired them in their careers and lives.
