Creativity is one of the key levers for OOH growth, as brands of all hues are constantly looking to make an impressionable presence on the OOH landscape. While OOH as a medium affords great scope for creativity, is the creativity on the Indian OOH canvas limited to the few and far in between innovations? Reaffirming the critical importance of creativity, Vinay Nikam, Creative Head, Connect OOH tells Media4Growth that OOH advertising demands creativity because it operates in a dynamic, real-world environment where capturing attention is crucial when surrounded by distractions. While creativity is the cornerstone of effective advertising across all channels, innovation plays a crucial role in OOH advertising. Due to limited attention spans and a highly competitive landscape, capturing audience attention and maximising the impact of OOH campaigns is paramount.”
