HUMAN BILLBOARD styles:
Above-the-head human billboard teams consist of double-sided signage placed above the head of brand ambassadors via a pole and custom backpack.
Signage can take the form of thought bubbles, speech bubbles, or custom die-cut shapes.
Above-the-head walking billboards can distribute flyers or trial-size product samples.
Above-the-head walking billboards are typically deployed with lightweight jackets to cover the custom backpacks.
Rectangle light-up human billboards consist of large signs that strap on to the back of brand ambassadors.
A large rectangle billboard bulletin-type size sign faces consumers behind the brand ambassadors and a small square signs is on the reverse side.
These are often called digital walking/human billboards as they light-up at night via internal LED lights.
Similar to the above they can create an advertising presence as well consumer engagement (e.g. product sampling, product demos, surveys, etc.)
Rectangle walking billboards are most effective when deployed in convoy mode on the busy streets of cities such as Boston, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington DC.
Custom concept human billboards consist of variety of walk-around advertising signage concepts ranging from hand-held stand-ins to interactive digital signage.
