Billboard Creative Design Tips & Tricks


AIDA Model Bishopp Billboard Creative Design

A strategically designed billboard advertisement can provide unlimited opportunities to connect with audiences. Classic and digital billboards are just as important as ever, even with the rise of digital marketing. So, how do you design an effective billboard?

Billboard design basics

  • You only need ONE call to action.
  • There are THREE key elements to a great billboard: Text, Image and Logo.
  • Stick to SEVEN words or less. The reality is that people are always on the go, make sure they can read your message in a few seconds.
  • Your logo needs to take up at least 20% percent of the space. Brand recall is key! Make sure audiences know what your logo is and who it represents.

Additionally, our creative team recommends that you use only readable, large fonts to ensure maximum readability. Ditch the phone number and address and try a custom URL instead! And finally… Don’t be boring! Graphics, colour and mood work in synchronicity to create a memorable out of home advertisement.
