The following provide more details about each campaign:
- Celebrating Black Creators with AdAge – OUTFRONT is partnering with AdAge for their annual Black History Month feature celebrating Black creative excellence, which debuted on February 1. The project highlights key moments in the careers of inspiring and influential creators from across the creative industry on OUTFRONT’s digital out-of-home media across the U.S. Each billboard will feature a photo of a Black creative executive making an impact on the industry. Utilizing transit and street-level locations, the campaign will also include a QR code that will direct commuters to learn more about the full Black Creative Excellence series on AdAge.com. OUTFRONT’s East Coast Regional Creative Director Tim Wasicki, the artist behind the award-winning “Black Heart” campaign, kicked off the month of celebration.
