The store I work at is part of a small business association, with all kinds of interesting members. I managed to find and capitalize on a cool opportunity. There are a couple of billboards around the city that haven't seen much use lately, so after wrangling with an ad agency in the association I set up a few pieces as a viral marketing campaign to get people interested in my show. I have no idea how effective it will be, but it looks cool.





They won't be up for long, let me know if you see them!

Edit: Yes, this is an April Fool's prank. I'm sorry for the temporary lapse in better judgement ^_^

Well, to be fair, normally I am very much averse to such pranks. I'm not sure what came over me, I just couldn't resist!

Well, it was a good one, for sure.

I was looking at the billboard yesterday wondering, "Where is the show info?" but figured that still had to be added. D'oh!

Very cool idea -- nice work. Though it's not really viral marketing so much as just marketing, is it?

Well, it's not so much marketing at all as goofing around with some images and photo editing software on April Fool's :)

Alas, it's not as amazing as I'd like it to be. It's something I threw together for a Photoshop project and couldn't quite resist posting today :)
