BRYAN PHARMACY Award Winning Motorized Boll Weevil Billboard

Have you ever seen a friendlier (and bigger) boll weevil? We highly doubt it. The FAMOUS Makers recently won big at Dothan’s American Advertising Awards. The FAMOUS Makers brought home a silver ADDY AWARD for Bryan Pharmacy’s mechanized waving boll weevil billboard, adding another award to the shelf.

It takes a talented team of designers and production engineers to pull off challenging ideas such as this. Bryan Pharmacy is not only a fantastic client who allows us to think outside of the box and push boundaries but they also offer the best pharmacy experience in town. If you are driving north around the circle in Enterprise, be sure to smile and wave back at our big, friendly Boll Weevil Bryan!

Beavers Heist a Five-Star Billboard in Dothan, AL

It’s not everyday that you see a team of beavers trying to steal the show, but in Dothan, AL it is. The FAMOUSMakers are excited to partner with Brunner, an innovative advertising agency, to bring to life Great Southern Wood’s new “Woodland’s Most Wanted” campaign. Great Southern Wood, located in Abbeville, AL, has always been a staple and known nationally for their YellaWood brand pressure treated pine. The new advertising campaign is an extension of their 2018 “Five-Star Backyards” campaign, which inspires DIYers to build their dream backyard. “Through the use of non-traditional YellaWood fans, in this case, a team of beavers, we’re taking a humorous approach to establishing the desirability of YellaWood brand products,” said Chief Marketing officer James Riley. “It’s a fun and engaging way to encourage homeowners to create their own Five-Star Backyard and to demand pressure treated pine with the little Yella Tag.”

This national advertising campaign launched in March 2019 and includes billboards, print, digital, broadcast and in-store signage. For the bulletins, Brunner incorporated 2-dimensional pop outs of the beavers to give it a more realistic feel. The Team at Durden Outdoor loves working with clients and agencies to showcase award-winning creative through outdoor. If you are interested in becoming FAMOUS in the Wiregrass and would like more information on how we can include a 2-D pop out in your outdoor, give us a call today at 334-792-5056 or drop us a line at sales@durdenoutdoor.com. And remember, if it doesn’t have the yella tag, you don’t want it.

When Two Billboards Are Better Than One

The Vance Law Firm wanted to make a statement targeting traffic leaving Pike County, AL headed northbound to Montgomery County, AL and the FAMOUSMakers had the perfect solution to help reach their audience. Just north of Troy, AL we utilized two bulletins that are directly across the road from each other. After having this idea for some time, we knew we wanted the two billboards to work together to tell a visual story. Featuring an arm in a cast and telephone, we used the left-hand read billboard to ask the question, “Injured?” and point drivers across the street to the right-hand read billboard where Stewart Vance, Attorney & Owner, is showcased instructing drivers to “Dial 3 for Me.” Stewart Vance concentrates his practice in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death and product liability. He represents those that have been injured in an automobile or other accidents; have suffered severe injuries or death from defective products; or who have had loved ones suffer from nursing home neglect and abuse. The Vance Law Firm has a team of attorneys ready to fight for you. Backed by the “V-Guarantee,” it’s no wonder The Vance Law Firm has been voted “Best Law Firm in Montgomery” for five years in a row. Give them a call today at 334-333-3333 for a Free Case Review. We enjoy partnering with clients to bring creative ideas to life.

Dothan’s Largest Pill Bottle Lands on the Southside

Dothan Pharmacy is a local, family-owned pharmacy who was looking to make a powerful statement to Dothan’s southside motorists. After discussing ideas with the client, we determined a large bulletin along one of Dothan’s highest traveled arteries was just what they needed. This billboard’s purpose would be two-fold. Primarily, it needed to announce the new store location. We accomplished this by creating a larger-than-life 12 foot tall pill bottle and added a massive directional arrow to essentially slap drivers in the face and say “HEY! WE ARE OVER HERE!” The billboard also needed to convey to viewers that Dothan Pharmacy is not a big box-store pharmacy, unlike their competitor down the road. But rather friendly, fast and family owned. We thoroughly enjoyed working with these guys and can assure you that if you are in the market for a new pharmacy, Dothan Pharmacy will treat you like family.

Dothan’s Most Traveled Intersection Gets a Digital Upgrade

After over 10 years of FAMOUS Making, Durden Outdoor Displays, Inc. recently upgraded one of its first Digital Displays located at the highest traffic intersection in Dothan, AL. The former double-sided Digital Billboard originally resided at Krispy Kreme facing the Ross Clark Circle and Westgate Parkway, catching east and westbound traffic. We decided that it was finally time to retire this beauty, relocate across the street and increase its size.

As you drive along West Main Street passing Friend Bank, you will now see a large, NEW 10′ x 36′ double-sided Digital Billboard. This Display still targets east and westbound traffic but offers a clearer visibility as well as a longer read for traffic. The weekly traffic count through this highly popular intersection has a total of 379,470+ cars. We are extremely grateful for our customers who have also been just as excited about this upgrade as we are.

To be FAMOUS on this prestigious Digital Billboard, contact one of our sales reps today at (334) 792-5056 or you may email us at sales@durdenoutdoor.com.
