OPEN2, the second edition in a collection of books on out-of-home creative has been released by the Outdoor Media Association (OMA).
“OPEN2 continues the conversation we started with our first book OPEN in 2012,” said Charmaine Moldrich, OMA CEO. “It presents the endless creative opportunities we know Outdoor offers while providing the reader with creative and strategic insights from some of the leaders in the industry.”
Featuring four chapters: Humour me; Sell me something; Tell me a story; and Interact with me, OPEN2 represents how OOH is increasingly becoming reflective of our culture and society.
OPEN2 also illustrates how OOH is part of our cityscape, our commute, our weekend and our shopping and holiday experiences. How OOH cannot be switched off, ignored or fast forwarded. How OOH is ‘the original tweet’, an undisrupted media channel and the ultimate creative stage. Big, bold, cheeky, simple, clever and controversial, OOH allows brands to be unique, contextually relevant and targeted while reaching mass audiences.
OPEN2 was launched in Sydney at an event Outdoor Creative – Xposed! which brought together creative agencies, media agencies and advertisers who discussed the campaigns featured in the book.
The panel moderated by Luke Chess, Creative Director, MJW Australia, included Elle Bullen, Senior Copywriter, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne (Bonds. Boobs); Beck Hamilton, Marketing Director Disney Theatrical Productions (The Lion King); and Serena Leith, Marketing Director, Spotify (Listen for Free).
OPEN2 is more than a book of images, it features opinions and experiences about advertising including a foreword written by Dr Rebecca Huntley, Executive Director, Ipsos Mind & Mood Report and 11 essays written by industry leaders.
OPEN2is now available for download and will be distributed as the OMA’s Christmas gift to creative agencies, advertisers and media agencies.
