Creativity in outdoor advertising reaching the five senses

Every day, people are facing advertising saturation, challenging brands to increase their efforts on reaching their right audience. Sensory marketing seeks differentiation, creating experiences through sight, sound, taste, touch and smell; associating them with a product or a brand. 

Outdoor advertising has many positive features. Sometimes, all of them are not used to the maximum, but when creativity and ingenuity come together, ideas arise that reach our five senses. 

Here are some of them:

Pernod Ricard UK placed strawberry scented posters throughout Oxford Circus Underground station in London as part of the launch campaign for Beefeater Pink, the new pink variation of its Beefeater London Dry Gin. Our campaign for scented posters was a massive success, winning awards for innovation at the media week awards 2018. 

Campaigns for O2, American Express, Virgin Media or the very recent one, Costa Rica Tourism Board, have demonstrated that the addition of audio in high dwell time environments, enhances the impact of the adverts and are received positively by passengers.

Costa Rica Tourism Board campaign, took place at the London Waterloo train station in London, bringing the stunning rainforests of Costa Rica to a rail environment with the latest outdoor takeover campaign. Banners were complemented by sounds of nature that were installed along a catwalk.

The sight is undoubtedly the most traditionally exploited aspect in advertising. With this original and creative campaign deployed at King Cross (London Underground station), The Lion King celebrated 20 years on the London Stage:
