Happy New Year and a Reminder to Keep Up the Fight

As we prepare to ring in 2015, PublicAdCampaign would like to wish everyone an exciting New Year to come. From personal street projects, to Augmented Reality mobile apps, to participation in global anti-advertising campaigns, we continue to fight for a more open and publicly oriented shared public space. 
With that in mind, its important to remember that the fight never ends. Deehubs, a Dubai based startup brings the issue into stark focus with its newest venture into drone based billboard projection and other insidious, manipulative ways to interject commercial content into our public lives.
