Pacific Blue Cross: Sign

Expensive Medical, 0.5 km.

American hospitals are crazy expensive. Especially if you’re from Canada and you don’t have travel insurance. So to reach Canadians on their way to the US, we placed three simple billboards (at varying distances) along the highway leading to the border. The ads replicate familiar highway signs, right down to their reflective surface. They remind travellers that US medical care is mega pricey and offer one last chance to get coverage before it’s too late.

Not sure if 'basic' is the right word certaintly. Simple yes... but basic implies that it's not well thought out. This ad is far from that. I think it's going to be effective.

Simple, effective and attention grabbing. This is a great example of the perfect ad placed in the perfect location. Good job!
