Throughout the past few years, the biggest buzz of the ad industry has been the death of traditional mediums; these billboard trends, however, prove the naysayers wrong. The year 2012 saw a resurgence in many traditional mediums, with billboards and posters on the forefront.
The key to keeping billboards alive is updating them for a modern audience, which can be seen with such things as the festive unwrappable art ads by Leo Burnett, or the ongoing board-fueled war between Audi and BMW -- in both of these cases and most others, it's a matter of taking advantage of the physical shape and placement of the billboard itself.
