Small, wordy ads are not always as much fun as a full page community event notice. However, these ads surprised me. The top two ads are a result of recreating the provided information in the last two images. The use of borders, reverse, bolding, and multi-color makes the most important information in a wordy ad still stand out. When they pay for full color, use Full Color!
Many ads use large pre-made elements. This ad is unique as I used a single, simple diamond image to enhance the 60th anniversary theme. It had to come together quickly. I was so pleased the classy look in the end.
September Harvest theme. I felt it was a little too early for pumpkins and cornucopias, and was so happy to find great pre-made apple elements. This is one of my favorite fall ads. I hope the slight change in a common theme caught many a reader’s eye.
This particular client usually sends an eclectic collection of small “ads” to fit together for their front page. I was particularly happy how the peppers tied this theme all together.
