This Digital Billboard is so Awesome it has its Own Name
A Sculptural Digital Billboard
JCDecaux built this stunning digital Out of Home structure in London called ‘The Kensington’.
The structure defies description. Reminiscent of framed billboards from the old days called Deluxe Trim on steroids, or is simply a modern version with more twists and turns. This structure is mammoth and unique! How often does the public have the opportunity to walk so near and behind a typical billboard? It is made of matt steel and granite. It demands attention to both the #OOH advertising screen side and the ‘back side’.
The LED screen is 85 ft x 20 ft was provided by Daktronics.
