Ngen , a unique audience insight community, was launched in June 2013.
Clear Channel’s new audience insight community Ngen, allows Clear Channel and their brand partners to participate in a hosted, two-way dialogue with 400 engaged and connected 18-34 year olds from eight major UK cities. The community will cover a wide range of topics close to the hearts of its participants, creating great insight for this influential audience.
Ngen participants are from a tech-savvy generation who are used to documenting their lives through social media and are happy to interact online. Ngen builds on the community’s familiarity with social media to gain a deep insight into who they are, where they go and what they think about the latest hot topics.
In a recent edition of Clear Thinking, Clear Channel highlight some of the main insights from their Ngen research, run in collaboration with Crowd DNA and the Trajectory Partnership, that took place throughout 2013. The community ran for 18 weeks, alongside two waves of quantitative online research. The research focused on the knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of a generation that represents the future of the UK. By working closely with 8 brands partners including Dixons Store Group and Channel 5 it generated the following insight:
• 95% Ngens still shop on the high street with the corresponding figure of 71% for online. Smartphones are also key with nearly half using smartphones for shopping related purposes • 52% of Ngens rated their smartphone as the technology they would keep above all else • 63% of Ngens agree advertising is important to a brand’s identity and almost half say they prefer targeted communication over general advertising. The contextual opportunities provided by OOH advertising is therefore key to this audience • Ngens are also one of the audiences that are key to the UK economy returning to positive growth. They have continued to spend and often think about the now rather than the future with 59% not contributing to a pension and 65% spending the same if not more on retail in areas such as clothing, footwear and consumer technology

JCDecaux Unveils ‘Connected’
JCDecaux has unveiled ‘Connected’, a new community of three audience panels that delivers unique insights across JCDecaux’s rail, roadside and retail portfolios. ‘Connected’ is a targeted insight tool for brands and agencies to find out more about hard-to-reach audiences to help deliver high-impact campaigns.
Building upon the success of the ‘Connected Commuter’ rail community, JCDecaux has re-launched ‘Connected Commuter Rail’ and has unveiled ‘Connected Commuter Road’ and ‘Connected Consumer’. Questions can be posed, based on any category or current trending topic, to the whole ‘Connected’ community or to each panel separately. ‘Connected’ also allows brands to tailor or adopt an advertising campaign to a specific audience through dynamic content on JCDecaux’s digital screens, with results delivered within hours.
Route, which launched on February 26 2013, replacing Postar, is OOH’s revolutionary new audience measurement system enabling greater targeting across more environments than ever before. It incorporates the latest measurement technology and covers all major formats – which acts as a catalyst to allow OOH to be truly accountable in this increasingly multi-media, multi-platform world.
£19m was invested in the research which took 4 years in the making.

Posterscope and Carat’s latest campaign for Monarch features an ‘always-on’ approach on a live network of landmark DOOH screens in priority regions – Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds. The sites are enabled with LIVEPOSTER capability to display immediate copy updates, allowing the Monarch team to react instantly to sales data, competitor activity, flight and weather information, current affairs and locally relevant news stories.
To promote their 123 Current Account and credit card Santander wanted to save the people of Shrewsbury £1 million. They did this by creating a three day event in the heart of the town with experiential staff capturing the combined savings for if everybody switched to the 123 Products. Posterscope assisted with this project by creating new out-of-home displays across the town.
During a fictional graffiti billboard campaign promoting the demise of Gio Compario, Twitter saw a huge increase in buzz. OOH was the only live broadcast media during this period proving its power to influence digital behaviour.
Increase brand consideration Create a unique & authentic graffiti campaign in OOH
Avoiding quality backlit and scrolling formats by selecting undesirable locations, increasing authenticity of the creative.
Fanta launched a highly interactive OOH campaign to target teenagers, which offered them the chance to physically connect with the brand. Users were encouraged to participate on a range of challenges and games through a targeted national 6s campaign, designed to seamlessly drive consumer engagement with the brand from offline to online. The ‘Fruit Throw’ game, which took place on 10 interactive screens strategically located where teenagers typically socialise, allowed users to play the game directly on screens on roadside bus shelters and shopping malls. The screens also featured a local leader board. Consumers were further encouraged to engage with the brand through Fanta branded bus stops, which were adorned with moveable Fanta stickers. People could take photos of themselves pulling their best ‘Fanta face’ with the stickers and post them on the Fanta Facebook page for a chance to win prizes. In addition, other roadside and mall 6s encouraged teens to take part in challenges, posing with 6s and uploading their photos to Facebook. Created by Posterscope and Publicis.
As the web becomes increasingly hyper-local and businesses / consumers create more location-based data, there are huge opportunities to use the latter to inform and optimise OOH planning, plus measure effectiveness.
Electronic transport tickets, sat navs, loyalty cards, mobile search, mobile wallets, plus numerous websites / mobile apps are just some examples of how technology is being used to create location-specific data trails – all of which have the potential to help determine which OOH sites, day-parts, and creative treatments are most effective for a particular campaign.
Location based tweets provide an ideal data set to mine, thus helping us infer which posters may be more effective in influencing a consumers digital behavior. The map shows tweets generated in Nottingham in a 7 day period
The pins show poster locations, while the color represents the associated index of the volume of tweets (generated in a 200m proximity to the poster).
Red pins are the highest indexing posters that people tweet in proximity to.

Evian has inked a three-year deal with Transport for London to give flustered travellers on the London Underground free bottles of water during the warm summer months. The brand has offered 250,000 bottles of Evian water to TfL to hand out at some of the busiest stations this summer, as the network pushes its ongoing Beat the Heat and Travel Better London campaigns. The campaigns aims to raise awareness of how passengers can help to reduce delays by making small changes to their travel habits. Sophie Brooks, Evian senior brand manager, said: “We are delighted to have teamed up with Tfl to give overheated commuters some Live Young refreshment. It is really important to stay hydrated during the hot weather so it is great to have the chance to help Londoners keep cool.” Phil Hufton, London Underground’s chief operating officer, said it was “grateful to Danone [owner of the Evian brand] for supplying customers with water” while it works towards its 2016 target of having 40 per cent of the network served by air conditioned trains.

The difference being with this exhibition it has been crowdfunded, plus it is entirely free for all to enjoy around the UK.

A top new addition to Art Everywhere this year sees an exclusive reveal of a commissioned artwork by a world-renowned artist – all to be revealed on 16th July on digital sites around the UK including the Trafford Centre in Manchester and Coventry House in London’s Piccadilly. We’ve assembled your selected list of works for our exhibition and posters will be printed and distributed across the UK ready for your viewing from the 21st July for 6 entire weeks providing a stunning backdrop to your summer.
