- Snapchat did an excellent job of using the tried-and-true outdoor advertising industry to raise awareness of their brand. They also potentially raised the awareness of our industry to a generation with a reputation having their eyes glued to their cell phones.
- The simplicity of the design is spot-on with their bright corporate yellow surrounding the centered logo. Fortunately, they don’t disappear after 10 seconds.
- Excellent use of the medium and strong simple design.
