Communicating With Your Audience

Wether it be warnings, information or advice for upcoming fixtures or events, you will find moments of well placed humour that you do not expect. TFGM's ability to link these events and communicate with its target audience whilst handling a normally mundane task of informing the public on Traffic flow and safety.

Subliminal Advertising

Subliminal Advertising is an important tool for TFGM. They must inform their audience without distracting them due to the safety of the road users. Relating to your audience and triggering emotion at the right time on the road while someone is driving is not easy. The use of traffic signs to supply information and personality to connect with its audience is a clever advertising method.

The Manchester United and Manchester City rivalry is nothing new to the person looking in, it effects our work-life, home-life, sleep and even our traffic. Sticking to its formula, TFGM uses humour and banter to communicate subliminal messages often taken little digs at both sides.
