Making a big impact every step of the way.
We created a series of eye-catching, OOH (Out of Home) adverts around Manchester to build expectations for arriving attendees as they journeyed to the event. Our key objectives were to celebrate ANDis and make them feel like the whole city was gearing up to welcome them.
We ran six digital billboards with brightly coloured creative ads, depicting people ‘working together to close the digital skills gap’. The precise ad messaging had an overarching mission statement appealing to all ANDis, while also enticing new clients and inspiring future employees.
The placement of the ads was critical. Our goal was to line the routes to the venue. While we placed large billboards at strategic locations – we also needed an alternative way to engage pedestrians.
Over 30 striking adverts were power-washed through stencils into pavements around Manchester, creating a ‘reverse graffiti’ effect. Our two designs included the company’s logo and website URL with messaging welcoming staff to the city. This cost-effective method was also environmentally friendly, disappearing naturally over time.
