So the question on everybody’s lips this Friday…what will be the number 1 billboard of 2021? Last week the pod counted down from 21 to 11. Now we’re in with the big guns. Who’s your money on?
At Behind the Billboard we were genuinely surprised at the quality of this year’s output. And ended up conveniently🤔 with 21 pieces from '21 worthy of discussion in our end of year pod.
We’d heard so many good things about Mike over the years and seen his work at all the award shows, but our paths had never crossed. Until now. The pod was the perfect opportunity for...
And we’re starting Series 3 where we left off…with Tiger Savage, talking us through her time at Leagas Delaney and M&C Saatchi. Hear the stories behind billboard brilliance for Adidas, Vogue.com, Becks, British Airways and more. Tiger is right up there when it comes to iconic famous billboard work and it was a total pleasure having her on the show - twice ;-)
Dan and Hugh finally sit down with Tiger Savage, having talked about much of her work on previous shows with her peers. It was so good to talk through her incredible body of work for some of the best agencies in the country.
Dan and Hugh talk with Michael [or Mike] Lee, Creative Director at Oatly who has presided over some of the most iconic outdoor ads our industry has seen in the last few years. Polarising the creative community and prompting complaints and legal action from the dairy lobbyists... we get behind it all.
Dan and Hugh talk with Copywriter extraordinaire Sue Higgs, going through her amazing body of billboards and posters for Vauxhall, Smirnoff, Regal and BA… among many others.
Hugh and Dan talk with Dave Buonaguidi AKA @RealHackneyDave about his time in Adland and about what he's up to now... still making posters for walls... but in galleries and homes around the world!
Dan and Hugh virtually meet up with the legend that is Sir John Hegarty. I'm not sure what else to add in this intro as... well.... its John Hegarty. He's a frikkin' legend. Just listen in..... it's a proper belter this one.
Dan and Hugh meet with founder of Uncommon London Nils Leonard, covering Outdoor work for Volvo, Tate, Habito, Brewdog and the 2020 Outdoor hall of fame campaign for B&Q.
