The Details

Name: Topper

Location: Waverley Bridge

Created By: Sandra Webster

Sponsor: Lothian Buses

Design Inspiration

This design shows the giraffe wearing a bus drivers uniform in Lothian Buses’ very own tartan. Dedicated to their close relationship with Edinburgh Zoo, each of the jacket buttons is shaped as one of the animals that often feature on their zoo-themed buses and are in the colour of their various tour routes. The trail of leaves flowing from his jacket pockets represent the companies environmental aspect too, with Lothian being fully committed to providing an environmentally friendly transport service.
