woensdag, oktober 11th, 2017

In the fall of 2017, the iconic Coca-Cola wanted to show its appreciation for, and respect of, the local, the authentic, the community it is a part of.

The billboard that takes the Ramadan into account

woensdag, juni 7th, 2017

As a brand it is always important to pay attention to the wishes of your target group. Halal Fried Chicken, the halal version of KFC in Amsterdam introduced a very special billboard campaign this week. During the Ramadan, it ‘s quite hard for people to see the beautiful tempting pictures of fast food on the streets when they’re not allowed to eat between sunrise and sunset. Halal Fried Chicken decided to help them a little by making a billboard that only shows the picture of the chicken wings at night.

The front of the poster only has the Halal Fried Chicken logo printed on it. The back side contains a mirrored picture of the chicken wings. When the light in the billboard turns on at night, after the sunset, the picture becomes visible. Cool!

The red color in the Colombian flag historically stands for “the blood in which we are willing to drown our enemies, before our surrender”. But today, Colombia is at peace with the enemies. That’s why McCann Colombia decided that the red colour needed a new meaning: to donate blood instead of spilling it.

The country’s tallest building normally shows the Colombian flag. The red color was removed, and replaced with a count of the amount of blood that was donated to the red cross in hospitals so it can save lives.

This Toyota billboard cleans the air

vrijdag, april 14th, 2017

Normally, a billboard only tells you about brands. Toyota took the phrase “Show, don’t tell” quite literally, and introduced Eco-Billboard to promote the new Hydrogen-fueled Toyota Miray. These billboards, a total of 37 of them can be found around Los Angeles and San Fransisco, clean the air around them by breaking down nitrogen dioxide. The special coat of a layer of titanium doxide works like an air purifier and this reduces the amount of smog around the billboard. These billboards emphasize the fact that the Toyota Mirai’s “only emmision is water”.

A Dutch tennis club in Diemen launched a very interesting billboard campaign. With texts like “I love hard balls”, “I like to do it with four people”, “I still do it three times a week” and “I have my peak every tuesday evening”, the club tries to attract new members. Sex sells!
