Due 8/25 - 1/2 page ad for wedding show guide - $150

Admin code added by Abby - 62M102544W344513C

This project is for one half page horizontal ad promoting my wedding photography services for a wedding show guide. I will also most likely use this design to create a promo card (5x7 or 6x9 size) later on, so I would be interested in purchasing an editable file from the designer at the conclusion of this project.

This is a color ad, ½ page horizontal, size required: 7.375” x 4.854”, 300 dpi

This ad should feature my logo, website URL (www.eye4weddings.com), my phone number (253-709-0102), some photos (not too many though) and I was also thinking about adding some bits of creative text (in a font such as Zapfino, with words like “it’s your love story” or “your day, your story”, feel free to suggest others as well).

See this link for low res photos to work with; (note there are three pages of photos) final hi res files will be sent to designer at the close of the project.

Click here for my logo.

Pod - This has high impact, it just might be what I'm looking for. I was thinking about using just a single photo, as that is what many photographer's do. Thank you for your submission!

pod - I love the design with more photos, might like to see the photos with a smaller border (thin keyline) I think the logo and info should appear larger and that the phone and website url should be a different font, zapfino is hard to read small. Also any other ideas for color of the background other than black?

imot - I do like the color scheme, I’m not too fond of the dots in the background, and also I wish the photos were larger.

Alex - I like overall design, not really sold on the brown color however.

Grafissimo - I like the red color scheme and overall look very much! Your second design does not fit within my requirements for a horizontal layout, but is interesting.

Pod - The revisions look good, I agree with you that black looks the best. I don't think you need to make any more changes at this point.

Fran - I like the idea of images from the same wedding, as it does help to tell a story, but the overall design background is a bit busy for me. I think it might be a good idea to use elsewhere, just not this ad. I'm not sure I really like the ovals as well.

Alex - your two updated versions are interesting, no need to provide any more revisions at this point.

Fran - I really like your second proposal, nice job. No further ideas/changes at this point. I may ultimately change this photo in the final product.

Grafissimo - I really like your two concepts (msgs #7 & 16). They both are bold, colorful and would stand out. Something that I would like to see is the logo and text orientated horizontally. I really like what you did with the text on the second version. (it's your love story...) I would love to see a revision with a different photo (try #0243 cropped horizontally)

ElKootcho - I like the 2nd version more, it has a very commercial look to it, something I would expect to see in print.

Fabian - Thanks for your ideas, however I'm not in love with any of them, I like the first one more, and liked the color scheme, but the overall design elements don't work for me.

NHR - I like your last two versions the best (msgs #24 & 25). I might change the photo, but the overall look I liked. I don't really like font you used for the "it's your love story" text, it looks a little overpowering.

Hi here is my take on it. For me, one of the joys of design is the presentation/ explanation aspect of it so I hope you don't mind the blurb.

The idea behind the concept is that the photo sort of pops out a bit, so that even though your ad is positioned among all the other text and images on the page of a magazine or paper, it would attract a second look. I used an autumn palette to sort of blend in with the palette of the photo and so that it is also in the same theme of the upcoming season. While the photo grabs the initial attention, the leaf at the corner is meant to anchor the attention on your logo so the eye sorts of travels around the whole ad.

Please provide comments for improvement. Thank you.

Lala
