Don’t hit them

I realise i do have a liking for billboard advertising, especially those that bring out the intended messaging through very creative means. Take domestic violence for example, I have seen tons of them done in a very statistical manner, direct and not interesting at all. You don’t grab a person’s attention, you don’t get to communicate anything at all. UNICEF’s recent billboard shows transitions between the day and the night. Just like violence at home, it usually happens during the night. Interestingly, this level of relevance is imperative in getting the right attention at the right time. It is reported that there are close to three million cases in the United States where children are abused badly. These ads brings awareness to people about violence at home, in the night where it goes pitch dark, it brilliantly casts a shadow of a horrifying figure attempting to strike the little kid. Interesting execution.
