SHOWING, NOT TELLING.
In Germany a hard-fought and competitive battle is raging amongst DIY stores: aggressive, blatant, ugly.
We asked ourselves: How can OBI, Germany's biggest DIY-store chain, distinguish itself from the competitors' low-budget advertising?
And: Why promote things that make our homes more beautiful, with advertising that makes everything look uglier?
We developed a completely new form of advertising: "Renovated Billboards"
On different run down houses, we renovated an area the size of an advertising billboard.
Produced for OBI at Jung von Matt Hamburg, Germany.
