It's indisputable that the growth trend in OOH over the past 12 years has been more than favourable, and according to WARC's figures, successful brands already allocate an average of 13% of their media budgets to OOH.

Overall, out-of-home campaigns have been one of the most popular formats of advertising for decades, which creatives in particular are great at executing and presenting even an idea that would be difficult to showcase in a TV spot or online. We've looked a little further back in time and picked out a few of the most creative ones that still have something to say today.
