Dublin City Council Use OOH to Drive Traffic Online (And Off Footpaths).

Posted on: June 27th, 2017 by niamh No Comments

A disability awareness campaign aimed at getting people to think about their everyday actions and the impact they may have for the disabled has been launched by Dublin City Council in conjunction with various disability groups, including the Disability Federation of Ireland and the National Council for the Blind. The Make Way Dublin campaign is hoping to encourage people to be mindful and conscious of blocking pathways and placing obstacles in the way of the disabled.

Using #makewaydublin the public is encouraged to post examples of hazards they have encountered. This is an effective method of driving online engagement as Nielsen’s Online Activation study showed OOH is the most efficient ad medium in driving online activity. The campaign planned by Carat and PML with creative by DDFH&B  is running on various formats as the campaign aims to raise awareness throughout Dublin. Transport Formats, T-Side, Bus Shelter and Commuter Cards, were all chosen to achieve this objective.

A Special and a Half!

Posted on: June 22nd, 2017 by niamh No Comments

Cadbury have gone all out with their spectacular new OOH campaign for Dairy Milk, with the central theme of the ‘glass and a half’ at the core of the communication. Digital screens incorporating Augmented Reality, a media first on a newly tailored format and huge Spangley billboards are all part of one of the more fun and ambitious campaigns on OOH in recent times.

In a media first, our designers combined the 96 Sheet and 48 Sheet on Talbot Street into one combined display with the new ‘L144 Sheet’ being very much part of the creative message. It cleverly illustrates a glass and a half of milk been poured, the amount of milk that goes into every bar of Dairy Milk. With their distinctive branding incorporated, Cadbury can enjoy instant familiarity and absorption of the ad.

Our Design+ team also created bespoke AR Digital content for dPods in Dublin’s major retail locations. Pre-recorded footage is incorporated into the live action screens, giving the impression that the glass and a half is making a big splash in the malls!

Cadbury are also bringing a little sparkle to Wexford Street with the biggest Spangley special ever displayed in Ireland. With over 32,000 discs used, the special located on Wexford Street is a show stopper.

These special elements of the campaign complement more classic formats in the campaign such as Bus Shelter 6 Sheets, Golden Squares and standard OOH digital screens. PML and Design+ collaborated with Carat on the campaign, along with Eclipse.

Design + offer a full range of creative services for static and digital OOH. Contact your PML representative for further information.

boxymo final

Boxymo, a car insurance company for young drivers, has launched in the Republic of Ireland. Linked with MCL Insurance, it is Ireland’s first telematics dedicated insurer. The telematics device tells BoxyMo how you drive and how far you drive. BoxyMo also shows drivers each month how to improve their driving and reduce their insurance.

With the cost of insurance sky rocketing, BoxyMo wants to bring cheaper insurance to younger Irish drivers, which offers discounts for good driving behaviour and could potentially cut 20% off the premium.

With creative produced by Ardmore and media planned by B Connected, in association with PML, BoxyMo is running an OOH campaign to drive awareness of the brand in Ireland. 48 Sheets, Bus Shelters and I-Sites all combined to promote the newest entrant to the car insurance market.

The campaign is targeting 17-25 year olds and OOH is extremely effective for this demographic with 35% of urban 17-25 year olds stating they have researched a product online after seeing an OOH advert (index: 150) and 28% stating they often talk about things they have seen advertised on posters (Index: 151).    TGI Survey 2016

Created by Watson Creative and media buying by The Media Farm in conjunction with PML, the OOH campaign is running on 48 Sheets, Bus Shelters, City Impacts and Luas Straplines, which provides effective targeting, strong coverage and frequency.

The creative features athletes from a range of sports to highlight the chains diverse sponsorship role and how passion unites across all sports. The campaign demonstrates a clever use of OOH formats for a visually impactful advert. A series of pictures were used to show the players are all connected by hands or feet.
