IKEA’s RGB Billboard

IKEA is all about making use of the space you have and doing it with a flair of design. Its latest billboard in Sweden truly hits that home, showing three different messages depending on which bulb is lit up.

So simple and smart and true to brand, this execution is spot on. I think in this day and age, it’s too easy for brands to complicate their message. Between a kagillion different social media and online avenues and just as many print and PR options, a brand’s message can get muddied, confusing and even lost if not executed with precision. More is not always more. That’s why this IKEA billboard is so striking to me. They could have used this space to put up a digital billboard with three different messages, but it wouldn’t have been as poignant as the three messages overlapping, truly using the same space.
