Results and Effectiveness
The campaign brought 6200 people to the events and 130 competing riders. Alex, Cezar and Pavel (the three "posters") were so popular that they even got invited in a live show on national TV for a short "free" promo.
We created the first human posters to skate the city. We got the best 3 Romanian riders and "tattooed" them with the Urban Fest 5 poster graphics and event info. They had their tricks with the city for 2 weeks, displaying the maddest posters to skate the streets of Bucharest.
