DSC_0356

We all recently witnessed just how unpredictable our weather can be and while the sun may not always shine, we need to get our Vitamin D from somewhere. Thankfully, Avonmore Super Milk contains all the daily sunshine we need, in just one glass.

The Glanbia brand has launched an above the line campaign to highlight the importance of Super Milk as a source of Vitamin D. For its OOH campaign, Avonmore Super Milk commissioned Super Rears and a super Luas Tram Wrap to bring some sunshine to our commute.

Luas is of course a hugely popular mode of transport for Dubliners with over 37 million trips taken last year. Displaying on the green line, the Luas wrap allows the advertiser to reach the ever growing and desirable Luas commuter audience and enhance visibility of the campaign as the unmissable tram makes its way through Dublin. The Luas wrap will be visible up until May.

As part of its wider OOH campaign, Avonmore included POP Ads detailing its free flight giveaway. With every 30 tokens collected, customers could choose to fly out to one of the eight pre-selected destinations.

The bundles allow customers to control their heating, lights and appliances through their smart phone when they are out of home. So, it was only fitting OOH advertising was a vital aspect of the new campaign.

The campaign reflects how smarter living means you’re guaranteed the comfort of a bright and warm home before you even get there. The campaign ran on 48 Sheets, Metropoles, T-Sides, Luas Columns on both the red and green line to ensure cross city presence and several Digital formats including Digital Mall, and Digital Commuter in key commuter hubs – Connolly Digital Gallery, Tara and Pearse Street as well as Adshel Live.

RSA’s Motorcycle Safety Awareness

The Road Safety Authority is asking bikers to ease off the throttle and keep within the speed limit in its new motorbike safety campaign, as speeding is a contributing factor in half of motorcyclists’ death. Planned by Spark Foundry, creative by Irish international with Outdoor planning by PML, the RSA is using specific sites for its campaign targeting motorcyclists. The campaign is displaying on Adboxes in garages and forecourts as well as motorcycle related stores such as Halfords and D15 Motorcycles.The sobering and hard hitting creative shows the perspective of the motorcyclist after a crash and is sure to strike a cord with bikers and loved ones.

The RSA is also running a HGV specific campaign in this cycle providing advice against driver fatigue. Again, the campaign will be displaying in strategically placed locations with heavy HGV traffic such as Digitowers in HGV accessible forecourts and 48 Sheets near the main Irish ports.


A Special and a Half!

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.

 


Thinking Outside the BoxyMo

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 


Elverys Unites the Passion for Sport

Sports apparel chain Elverys has launched a new advertising campaign to coincide with a number of sporting events scheduled for the summer months, which they are associated with.

The sporting chain launched a multi – sport OOH campaign called Where Passions Unite, featuring some of Ireland’s best known sport stars, such as Irish rugby players Gary Ringrose, Tadgh Furlong and Niamh Briggs, as well as your everyday sports fanatic, whether they are found on the sidelines cheering on the team, having a kick about with friends, or limbering up for a run. We are all united by the love of sport.

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.

The campaign is also highly localised with a national campaign to showcase the more grass roots approach to the brand’s sponsorship which features many GAA county players as well as your regular sports fanatics.
