Surprise has been supporting socially disadvantaged people with a number of different measures for over 20 years. Serviceplan Suisse’s new poster campaign is designed to help draw more attention to the street vendors of Surprise magazine.

Surprise, which is part of the International Network of Street Papers (INSP), offers socially disadvantaged people an opportunity to earn an income by selling the magazine. Over 400 vendors sell the magazine to readers every day.

In order to help them sell more magazines, Serviceplan Suisse decided to give them an even more eye- catching platform by using the posters in a completely new way. These “poster kiosks” are not just designed to draw attention to the vendors, but also to function as a point of sale.
