Given the stories about the bus lane cameras catching the unwary tourists and the litter on our streets I would say a better question was....

Why is Glasgow so unwelcoming??

Seen the poster adverts in the town at the weekend. A rather ghastly shade of pink - cerise? The posters didn't stand out among the others and didn't really say much, ie I didn't get what message they were trying to get across and who it was aimed at. Used to work in advertising so know a bit about it. It's a catchy phrase but it has to mean something real to connect with the target market. Just now that is not happening.

I have to say that none of the images do anything for me at all.

What is the first one about.... doesnt even look like Glasgow but looks like Stonehenge or something. And the horizontal one looks like an advert for some kind of carnival or something. Must do better.... miles better!! smile.gif

It's true that People do make Glasgow ... what she is but the Slogan can certainly be abused or at least misused with many an uncomplimentary attatched ending.
People made Glasgow real for me when; after leaving School in Blantyre where I grew up, I started working in the City where I was born but not raised and came to see what I'd missed in the 15 years of my absense. I loved the City by day and night and I loved the people who made Glasgow.
For that reason I gave a yes vote.

The town where I live now; on the border with Basel in Switzerland, is known as "The City of Stools" - yeah, I know rolleyes.gif , is twinned with Bognor Regis and has a Coo named Wilma as the city's mascot so think yourselves lucky ... it could have been worse tongue.gif

However, it hasn't cost the town millions to come up with that. laugh.gif

... ***`s sake! Twinned with Bognor Regis... Bognor Regis...

Perhaps, after independence, we can get around to free-ing up a lot of Scots towns, cities, even neighbourhoods, for twinning.

How does Garthamlock sound? Could I interest you in Newton Mearns? Broomielaw, perhaps?

Sighthill park has a stone circle, might be that one.

The third one looks rubbish. Bad colour balancing. The crowd in the b.g. out of focus. Half the entire photo given over to more or less blank (white) space. Like some amateurs trying to do a professional job. The idea`s there. But the execution`s hopeless.

People Make Glasgow and Glasgow Makes People...sounds like drinking whisky is not the national pasttime after all. There ye go Tee hee that`s how the slogan could become abused,probably much worse to come. However,whatever way you look at it,Glaswegians are smashin` people,so we are tongue.gif a better slogan in my opinion,Glasgow Is Unique.
