British Advertising Posters: July

In this monthly series we’re highlighting posters from Michelin’s British advertising campaigns. Featuring recognisable straplines, occasional British institutions and fabulously eye-catching designs – as well as appearances from Bibendum, naturally! – we’re sure many of you will recognise or remember them fondly from back in the day.

Let’s Get Lyrical (Late 1970s)

The Michelin Man became a popular crooner for these easily recognisable advertising messages introducing us to the catchy “Switch to Michelin” slogan. This messaging theme was to be further developed throughout the 1980s – you’ll see more of these memorable visual designs in upcoming instalments.
