Advertising Absence.

One noticeable hit to business during the coronavirus pandemic has been to the advertising industry. Whilst electronic billboards, such as at bus stops, have been busy with government health messages, a look at the side of buses travelling around London will show you some empty spaces or out-dated adverts, such as cinema releases.

Large static poster billboards also appear to be heavily affected leading to some sites being fly-posted. This site, on the Uxbridge Road in west London, has been subject to a number of recent guerrilla marketing attacks with mainly political messages pasted over the space. A recent one about Grenfell, along with the defacing of the owners’ nameplate, was hastily replaced by this blank canvas.
