Billboard ads are an architectural eyesore. And they’re fundamentally designed to get in your way--to leverage visual noise to distract you while going about your day and having your own thoughts. Worried about filing that report? A bus stop wants to sell you french fries. Dodging other drivers during rush hour? An overhang has a deal on car insurance.
