Local Attorney Makes a Statement in Baton Rouge with New 3D Billboard

Baton Rouge, LA – January 28, 2014 – Local personal injury attorney Gordon McKernan is making a major statement in Baton Rouge, thanks to new 3D billboard embellishments from Lamar Advertising Company.

Lamar Advertising started producing custom 3D objects at its printing facility in Baton Rouge last year, and McKernan took advantage of this opportunity for his new campaign concept. Using its 3D production capabilities, Lamar Advertising created a 16-foot tall, 200-pound larger-than-life realistic foam cutout of Gordon McKernan and a 12-foot wide, 300-pound truck. The 3D foam props were secured to the billboard structure, creating a bold, impactful design.

“Lamar Advertising came up with the 3D billboard concept, and I thought it was a great idea. I am eager to try new trends so that my law practice can be as innovative as possible,” says Gordon McKernan.

“Our advertisers are constantly looking for the most innovative and advanced ways to utilize the out-of-home medium,” said Lamar Advertising Account Executive Amy Starnes. “One of the newest capabilities is using our custom 3D embellishments on billboards. Gordon McKernan took advantage of this opportunity for his campaign, and we expect that it will generate a lot of buzz around Baton Rouge.”

The 3D billboard stands between the exits of College and Acadian on I-10 west bound.
