The Vance Law Firm wanted to make a statement targeting traffic leaving Pike County, AL headed northbound to Montgomery County, AL and the FAMOUSMakers had the perfect solution to help reach their audience. Just north of Troy, AL we utilized two bulletins that are directly across the road from each other. After having this idea for some time, we knew we wanted the two billboards to work together to tell a visual story. Featuring an arm in a cast and telephone, we used the left-hand read billboard to ask the question, “Injured?” and point drivers across the street to the right-hand read billboard where Stewart Vance, Attorney & Owner, is showcased instructing drivers to “Dial 3 for Me.” Stewart Vance concentrates his practice in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death and product liability. He represents those that have been injured in an automobile or other accidents; have suffered severe injuries or death from defective products; or who have had loved ones suffer from nursing home neglect and abuse. The Vance Law Firm has a team of attorneys ready to fight for you. Backed by the “V-Guarantee,” it’s no wonder The Vance Law Firm has been voted “Best Law Firm in Montgomery” for five years in a row.

Durden Outdoor Installs Alabama’s Largest 3D Nose
The #FamousMakers at Durden Outdoor located in Southeast Alabama have always contended to be professional paraphrasers. We have a general rule to keep a headline shorter than 7 words as we only have 8-10 seconds to get our point across. While working on a new 2016-17 creative theme for one of our favorite clients, we achieved this goal…….plus we were able to add one new creative element on a billboard to push it over the top! CLICK TO SEE THE 3D NOSE VIDEO: https://youtu.be/GD9ocJnELrM Bryan Pharmacy is a locally operated pharmacy with 3 locations in Enterprise and Elba, Alabama. Check them out at http://www.bryanpharmacy.com/ Owner Brett Bryan knows that to compete against the big chains, he has to offer customers a better experience than the “BIG CHAINS” and be creative with his marketing budget.
“Bryan Pharmacy is proud to claim the fastest prescription turnaround matched with the friendliest customer service in the Coffee County area. This is where the headline“Sniffl’n around for a faster pharm” originated from” says Durden Outdoor’s creative director Bill Durden. “This client is always willing to push the envelope with their creative as they know it works.” The #FamousMakers were also able to incorporate the nose element into the rest of the FAST theme by using the following headlines:
Because waiting STINKS.
Because big chains STINK.
Because you asked for 7 days. Because we help your momma and ’em.
Check out Alabama’s largest 3D nose on the billboard next to Taco Bell on Boll Weevil Circle in Enterprise, AL. Durden Outdoor worked with Soft Signs in Ontario, Canada to complete the vision of creating and mounting the largest nose in Alabama onto a billboard.

ICY BILLBOARD CATCHES MAJOR ATTENTION
In the South Alabama heat, it’s surprising to see icicles hanging from a billboard. Well here on the corner of Highway 84 West and Ross Clark Circle in Dothan you can see just that. This refreshingly cool addition was created for our client, Ashley Enfinger, for their promotion of Sears Hometown Store and Glacial Cryogenics. Ashley put it best when he said, “The billboard is great, and exactly what we needed to let people know about our businesses. Durden Outdoor is always coming up with a creative way to make us look good.” Our design team had quite a job on their hands to make a design that brought attention to both Sears and Glacial Cryogenics, and gave directions to both locations. For a bit of insider information, designers always say, “Less is more in outdoor.” Fortunately for the designers and the client, everyone was in agreement that we needed to stick with this philosophy and keep the design bold and simple, with just enough embellishment to make everything POP! That is where the icicles came in, deep from our team’s creative subconscious, likely wishing for a chilly reprieve from the near 100 degree weather this summer. These icicle additions add a cool feature (pun intended) to the billboard, drawing attention as they sway in the breeze. Be sure to check out Sears (http://www.searsoutlet.com/Dothan/d/store.jsp?store=4242#/) and Glacial Cryogenics (http://glacialcryo.com/) while you are in Dothan to see how cool they really are!

Billboards Create Record-Breaking Weekend for Julia’s Restaurant
We recently had the opportunity to partner with Julia’s Restaurant to make their delicious buffet FAMOUS in Troy, AL. Julia’s Restaurant wanted to make a huge impact on Hwy 231. They utilized our bulletins to make a statement and tell a story to southbound traffic on Hwy 231. As you travel 231 South to the beach, you will see five different directional bulletins featuring Julia’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffet. The weekend after the billboards went up, Julia’s owner Bo Lankford said “we had a record breaking weekend with the highest sales we have ever seen.” Be sure to stop by Julia’s and enjoy their mouth watering down home cooking- they even have a daily menu listed on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Julias-Restaurant-LLC-171935629493440/ The team at Durden Outdoor can help you reach over one million cars daily.

Client Testimonials & Feed Back for Durden Outdoor Displays
We would like to share some of our more recent praises from a few of our clients: We were given creative control by Bud Ford for the New WDHN Spec “You, Got Josh’d.” Mr. Ford knew he wanted it to look athletic, sports like, and sharp. Our Durden Creative Team designed the logo & banner you see below. WDHN’s Sports Director Josh Rultenberg takes his talents to the field, court, or where ever the playing ground may be for each episode of “You Got Josh’d” to see if he can out play his challenger.
“Thanks for your hard work and you are very good at what you do…I never saw the banner that way in my mind…excellent work” –Bud Ford, Meteorologist/Radio Personality— Laura Wildzunas, a Rucker Blvd. Elementary Teacher, and Lori Snell, a Enterprise High School Teacher, have done a great job this year teaching the young minds of Enterprise, Alabama. Enterprise City Schools wanted to congratulate its excellent school system by having their 2012 Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year on the Durden Enterpirse Digital Network.
“You nailed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Rick Rainer, Director of Operations at Enterprise City Schools— Billy Lawrence Chevrolet-Buick, Inc. is having a NASCAR give away contest. You can test drive your way to a 2012 NASCAR Weekend! The contest is from January 23, 2012 – February 12, 2012. The NASCAR Weekend includes 3 days & 2 Nights in a hotel and tickets to the NASCAR Weekend Event of your choosing. Once they notified us of their event, the design department quickly got to work on the artwork for the Eufuala Lighthouse Digital (Seen Below).
“The ad looks fantastic! You all did a great job!” Brooke Givens, Billy Lawrence General Manager— Codwell Bankers Lisa & Kathy wanted to change their digtial message on our Enterprise Digital Network. The art department and creative team went to work to get their new vision up and running asap. Any time you see a “Home for Sale” sign you can call your Realtors, Lissa Fenner & Kathy Kinspell, and they will help you purchase it even if it is a different realty company handling the home.
“Thank you for getting those up and running so quickly! We are already getting comments on how great they are and the typical “why didn’t I think of that?” Lisa Fenner, Realtor, ABR, Military Market Specialist, Coldwell Banker Prestige Homes & Real Estate, Inc

Music Festival Coming to Dothan
TOADLICK MUSIC FESTIVAL is a 3-day outdoor country music festival held at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds in Dothan, Alabama on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of March 2012. TOADLICK will feature some of the biggest names in Country Music performing on two stages throughout three fun-filled days and nights. General admission tickets are available for purchase online at toadlick.com. Trace Adkins, Sara Evans, Dierks Bentley, Billy Currington, and Montgomery Gentry are just a few of the fifteen acts that will be performing on the two amphitheater stages. Not only is there music but there is camping…Camping spaces (full hook-up, partial hook-up, and primitive) will allow you to enjoy the complete TOADLICK experience.Durden Outdoor is grateful to have had a first hand experience in helping this great event in coming to Dothan, Alabama. They are utilizing all three of the Durden advertising products: Rotary Poster, Bulletins, and our Digital Network. Bulletins are the largest, most impaction standard-size form of outdoor media. Located on highly visible locations, such as expressways and primary arteries, they offer advertisers exposure from heavy traffic patterns. Bulletins afford great visibility due not only to their size, but because they allow creative customizing through extensions and embellishments. A Rotary Poster program is one of the preferred methods used to penetrate the market and build strong brand saturation. Posters are purchased in increments called showings. Poster showings provide a broad, simultaneous market reach that can achieve instant market saturation and high frequency where your customers live, work, and play. Posters are extremely powerful for launching new product campaigns, time sensitive promotions, seasonal and special events (like TOADLICK Music Festival). Digital billboards are the billboards playing an on a large LED display. The display shows one specific ad for roughly 8 seconds before rotating to the next advertisement. The advertisements can be featured for both long term brand building marketing campaigns, and short “pulse advertising” to make a direct advertisement to promote an social event, sale, grand opening, or other event. Different ads can be displayed depending on many variables such as time of the day, month, weather, and more. TOADLICK will surely be FAMOUS before its all over. If you would like to be FAMOUS contact us today and become a part of the Durden Advertising Family.
