Midwest advertising agency Extra Credit Projects (ECP) for client Guiding Light, are using traditional outdoor advertising in an untraditional way this giving season. Drawing attention to the ever-growing homelessness problem in Grand Rapids, the billboard, which can be seen driving south on US-131 in downtown Grand Rapids, features actual tents installed across the platform to dramatize the current issue.
“While homelessness in Grand Rapids is no secret, those communities and conditions are out of sight for many in the city,” said Rick Iseppi, Senior Art Director at Extra Credit Projects. “We took a very literal approach to elevating the issue and bringing that reality front and center.”
The integrated campaign also includes broadcast and streaming TV, radio, and additional outdoor to bring attention to the programs and services offered by Guiding Light, as well as encourage donations to help Grand Rapids men.
