Prior to the smart phone, broadcast and the printing press; cave paintings, then Billboards were the earliest forms of mass communication. Fast forward to today and the foreseeable future, image has returned as the message of choice for communication and storytelling. The world has moved away from the word and back to the image. The simple, ‘old’ method of expression through images, has returned, moving to ‘small screens’, where we share our lives via photos, videos, podcasts and emojis through Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and YouTube. Revaluing image is recharging the opportunities for OOH, particularly with Digital Screens .
