It’s that time of the year again – the five white NUS Admissions Campaign ISBs are due for a rewrap. Every year, five buses feature a set of NUS alumni and students highlighted by Office of Admissions (OAM). Again, this was done in tandem with the Open Day season.

The #NUSBeyond branding, it appears, is well and truly out of use. The common tagline across the ads (and in OAM’s website) is “Shape Your Future“, which differs from the 2021 tagline “Shaping The Future”.

New to this year’s ads is the use of a completely different tagline and photo on both sides of the bus, mirroring the Admissions website’s dual designs. Previously, the photo might be different, but the tagline would be the same. Also, the rear of the buses now has “#SHAPEYOURFUTURE” in orange on the engine cover.

On the offside, the feature takes up the central third of the bus; on the nearside, it takes up the rear third of the bus, while there is a QR code linking to the person’s feature page.

Interestingly, the first two buses to be rewrapped (PC3769R and PC3906L) had the black area containing the wipers wrapped over in white as well. This is contrary to the usual practice of leaving it unwrapped, which was carried on for the other three.
