Strap in folks. This is an absolute belter of an episode. The farty card was a good start. But the story behind the Relate campaign shot by Rankin is something we’d never heard before. And we’ve heard quite a bit in the past five years. We don’t want to reveal too much but let’s just say Nicola’s Nan features quite prominently. And some of the conversation ..read more

Charming. Loves a big idea. Loves a gag. And loves the in-house BtB flapjacks. We spent a leisurely hour with Matt chatting billboards, from his very first one for Macallan that he bizarrely spotted while on holiday in New York…to DOH anti-smoking, Tfl, Trident Gum, Gym Box and closing on Breast Cancer Now and the perfectly pitched topical work that ran during the Women’s World Cup.

Plus he’s a footy fan. All of which makes him perfect for the pod. Guy started his career at the ho ..read more

Visuals: https://getbehindthebillboard.com/episode-62-peter-souter Rarely have we had such a talented, humble and unanimously respected guest as Peter Souter. Our teaser earlier this week had an amazing response with many waxing lyrical about his creative talent and what a great person he is. So we’re hoping this episode lives up to the hype. We talked about any and everything. And managed to fit in some OOH along the way ? The story behind the shredded ‘Industrial secrets’ poster he wrote with Paul Brazier is a belter, esp when you hear the final execution didn’t actually involve a shredder ..read more
