Posted by Jennifer Hurley on Aug 30, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Are you a walking zombie until you've had your morning Cup of Joe? How do you take it? Black, no sugar...cold brew...or, are you a little more particular as in "Triple Venti, Half Sweet, Non-Fat, Caramel Macchiato"? No judgment, just hope we aren't waiting behind you in line...

Here's a fun fact: Light coffee has more caffeine than dark coffee. That's because the longer the coffee is brewed, the more caffeine is cooked out of the beans.

Made You Look! Using Humor in Outdoor Advertising

Posted by Jennifer Hurley on Aug 1, 2018 2:00:00 PM

Certain human emotions are universal, we all like to laugh (and scream...sometimes), but yes, that tummy-aching, cackling, snorting, "I just spit out my coffee" laughter ranks high on the list. To wake up worker bees and catch the attention of frenzied commuters, humorous outdoor imagery is used to not only make someone's day, but to leave a lasting brand impression. 

Truly brilliant copywriters insert tongue-twisters, teasers, slow reveals and copy that will give the brain pause, and make passersby take a second look...and then another and then maybe an Insta-selfie. If those engaged consumers suddenly feel a smile spread across their face, accompanied by a side stitch of laughter, consider your campaign a bona fide success.

Here's one recent example that made its debut in the NYC neighborhood of Soho last week:

As Adweek sharedThe focal point of these ads are gushing (made-up) quotes like “Sensational in bed!” or “A total snooze fest!” Printed in old-fashioned fonts, these humorous ads meant to invoke the feeling of a Broadway playbill. “While we take sleep very seriously at Casper, we don’t take ourselves too seriously," said Jeff Brooks, Casper's CMO. “That’s been a big part of our brand from the beginning."

Get Over Your SELFIE: Billboards Promote Safe Driving Habits

Posted by Kelsie Sebreros on Jun 12, 2018 11:30:00 AM

In 2016 alone, 3,450 people were killed from accidents attributed to texting and driving. During daylight hours, approximately 481,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving, with teens reported as the largest age group distracted at the time of fatal crashes.*

Newer cars may come equipped with hands-free dialing, but that hasn't been enough to curb this unsafe habit. That’s why Clear Channel Outdoor, Project Yellow Light, the Ad Council, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, National Organization for Youth Safety, iHeartRadio, Mazda Motorsports, and U-Haul joined together to collaborate on a campaign that drivers can’t miss. One created by students, students who are new drivers, and students who may be in danger from other distracted drivers.

Delivering better experiences for customers. Telecom operators are expanding the range of services they provide to include video and digital services to compete with companies such as Netflix.
