CAMPAIGN SPOTLIGHT: Man on Billboard Waving and A 19 Foot 3D Pillow…. WHAAAAAT???

Express Employment

Complete Hearing

Have you heard? Kristy and Patrick Walding are providing you modern hearing care at Complete Hearing. While Complete Hearing is new to Dothan, many folks already know Kristy Walding. She’s served the Wiregrass Area for over 15 years. Her experience in client and hearing instrument care is second to none. Kristy and Patrick came to Durden Outdoor Displays in need of a campaign. A campaign that would let everyone in the Wiregrass Area know that Complete Hearing was now open. By advertising at all, your viewer is led to believe that you are in fact, open—coming soon messages aside. Unfortunately many campaigns state this obvious fact, leading to an unremarkable campaign. Don’t underestimate the power of a boring campaign. It can flatten your profits. It can sink your ROI. So, how were we to take this simple message and adapt it in such a way that it fit with the Complete Hearing brand? And, furthermore, how were we to convey it in a unique way, so as not to alienate their audience? With all that in mind, the pressure was on. Our art department collaborated with the Complete Hearing team and the end result took an old notion and refinished it to its former glory. Is the idea sound? Does it ring true? Leave us a comment and let us know.

Digestive Health: If 2020 Were a Drink

This year has been unlike any other. Most would agree that it has not had a great taste to it. Here’ hoping that taste doesn’t linger.
Digestive Health Services (DHS) was looking for a new summer campaign. Something that would speak to our general disdain for 2020. Never ones to shy away from humor, DHS decided to turn this lemon of a year into lemon aid, err Colon Prep.
The idea was first presented by DHS and our creative team took it and created two ads with a cohesive theme. That theme being alcohol advertisements. If we’re going to speak about 2020 as a cocktail (or mocktail), why not mix it up and pay homage to the classics in look and feel.
These two ads have been running in both the Durden Digital Network and Poster Rotary System. So, go on, drink ’em in. Got another suggestion for 2020’s drink of the year? Let us know in the comments.

Ever Seen a Pink Bug at a Restaurant? We Hope So!

In most cases, a bug and a restaurant do not go together. In fact, while dining out, the last thing that you would want to see is a bug….except when you are at Our Place Diner! Over the years, Our Place Diner has become a Dale County landmark. Located on Hwy 231 in Ozark, AL, the restaurant boasts an actual Volkswagen Beetle (Bug) sticking out of the ground. With oversized portions, a large menu variety and a shrimp po’ boy that won’t wait, you’ll find Our Place Diner overflowing with southern charm. Their friendly staff is always ready and willing to wait on you.

Our Place Diner selected a bulletin just north of their restaurant to encourage people to stop by and to promote their burger that was voted “Bama’s Best Burger 2018”  by the Alabama Cattleman’s Association. They have had such great response from the billboard that they are looking to add an additional billboard just south of the restaurant in the near future.

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.
