Just because walls are flat doesn’t mean billboards have to be. IBM and Ogilvy France have launched a series of outdoor ads, each with a different shape and purpose. (Good spot, Jamie.) There’s one you can sit on. Another you can shelter under when it rains. And another that makes dragging your bag up steps that little bit easier.
The ads are part of IBM’s People For Smarter Cities project, which encourages ‘smarter thinking’ when it comes to city planning and design. But they’re not the only ones with the big ideas – while you use the ads to sit/shelter/roll, you’re also encouraged to go online and share your own ideas for the city. Clever.
