Just where did September go? Luckily I managed to capture a few of the sights around Los Angeles this month, including this cool collection of fashion and lifestyle billboards.
I'm really loving Levi's new fun, youthful and colourful ad campaign for their new Curve ID jeans for women.
I'm obviously not exactly target market, but that doesn't stop me finding them humorous and appealing.
There's also a whole raft of other jeans brands trying to grab passersby attention, like this denim heavy Lucky Brand Jeans creative.
Robins Jeans opt to promote their unique logo as a point of difference, but it's not as good as their angel billboard creative I spotted the other day.
Joe's Jeans chooses to stand out from the crowd with this scantly clad model on a desert swing-set to get your attention.
Whilst DKNY Jeans goes for a look that would work really well in the wintery metropolis of New York, but feels somewhat overdressed in the city which has just experienced its hottest day in living memory at the end of September (113 degrees fahrenheit).
Here's Zoe Saldana, of Star Trek, The Losers and Avatar fame, looking slightly cooler in her sexy billboard ad for Calvin Klein Envy underwear along Sunset Boulevard.
Speaking of the appropriately named Sunset Strip, here's another racy Sam Edelman shoe billboard to get pulses racing for their Lorissa studded pumps.
Meanwhile these Gucci models look much more covered up and stylish in this luxurious and golden creative for Autumn.
Emporio Armani also has a great Autumn campaign this month, including this wintery white ad, plus two other fashion billboards you can see at Daily Billboard.
Of course, no fashion story is complete without the perfect accessories, so enjoy this simply stylish Tiffany clutch bag billboard.
Was it really back in June that I was highlighting the Vodka War around L.A.? Maybe Belvedere Vodka was listening (or reading my blog at least) as this huge billboard on the side of the swanky Mondrian Hotel now graces the busy Sunset Strip.
I love when brands use humour to sell their products and Newcastle Brown's 'Lighter side of dark' campaign is no exception.
I also liked this refined, striking billboard for Nastro Azzurro beer which caught my eye this month.
Maker's Mark also continued to produce witty and stand out billboards in September.
And finally for beverages, we have a new non-alcoholic drink, 'Fuze', which certainly has a bright and colourful billboard, but at the same time looks like it's jam-packed with artificial flavours.
Travel BillboardsThis billboard for the Mandalay Bay resort and casino in Las Vegas caught my eye for its 'From Here to Eternity' quality, made famous by Burt lancaster and Deborah Kerr. It was a shame the billboard was above a MacDonalds drive-in which kind of spoiled the moment.
Performing Arts Billboards
You can always tell when the Hollywood Bowl season is winding down when you see these billboards for the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra around town. They are colourful and lively though and go some way to dispel the stuffy image of orchestral concerts.
And finally for this selection of billboards is this incredibly simple and clever billboard for Chipotle Mexican Grill. It's a really engaging advertisement without resorting to being shocking, loud or in-your-face and best of all it made me smile.
If you love these billboards, you can find even more great examples at Daily Billboard every day.
Come back next month for another round-up of all the interesting billboards lining the streets of Los Angeles, and more besides...
