Five Sign Creative Strategies To Consider

  • Humor and Intrigue

    This is a powerful design choice, since humor and intrigue require less ad weight to build awareness than a mundane execution. Humor arouses the most favorable response among viewers. Intrigue involves a viewer by using words or pictures that are not immediately comprehensible, a puzzle or solution relationship.

  • Surprise

    Stimulates a viewer using unexpected or unusual design elements. A surprised viewer will do a double-take and will generally experience an emotional response once the essence of the message is understood.

  • Aesthetics

    Designs that present pleasing, pleasant images or ideas may be soothing to observe or enjoyable to study in detail. More dependent on pictures than words.

  • Literal

    Generally produce the lowest recall among Out Of Home advertising viewers. Although pure branding of name over time can be very effective, literal won't quickly accomplish that. Entertainment destinations are unique if you decide to use a literal message, if you have a recognized brand or name. On the other hand, if you try to advertise an unknown show, name or entity with a literal message you are wasting money. The summary for design execution is Keep It Simple!
