Posts Tagged ‘Advertisement’

After a two and half week hiatus the Go Green Campaign is finally back on track.  For those of you who don’t quite know what this is all about, I’ll explain it briefly.  This is an unsponsored event in which I create an advertisement campaign for an imaginary company.  Throughout the campaign I will produce various mediums of advertisements ranging from textual blurbs, to web adverts, to print style ads. You can find all of these examples under my previous campaign to which this is modeled after: This is Blue.

Also note that “Green” is not a real company. It is simply a color.  No money is made from creating these campaigns. Its sole intentions are to better myself as a designer by exploring new techniques.

Below are three 728×90 Banner advertisements that would run on a web environment.

Using darker shades of green this banner gives an earthy hand woven feel.  The tag line being “Possibilities for the future” presents the idea that green is a resource that we will need to turn to in order to survive.  I like the presentation on this design and it would do well on both a dark background and a light background observed here.

This advertisement utilizes typography and a faint background to draw attention to itself.  It presents the standard definition of green from highlighting the fact that green is actually complex.  The tag line “Put simply, green is the color of life” is the real focal point here which gets viewers to think.

Following the same theme as the second banner but with a more direct approach.  It clearly advertises and advocates a website (no affiliation with Jessetalks) which promotes “green.”  The simplicity of this banner brings forth the element of cleanliness.  I enjoy looking at this banner as the meassage is straight foward.

The Go Green Campaign will continue as I find new innovative ways to bring forth the color green.  I want to do some kind of photographic advertisements, but I don’t really have the proper cameras to do that.  Maybe in the future.

School Lunch Poster

Somewhere along my high school career I acquired the ideology that the school cafeteria completely fails at making a tasty delicious lunch. Sure it was healthy, but tasty? No. It was only until this school year that my cafeteria actually began to make some decent changes.  They brought in a salad bar for the vegetarians and a sandwhich cart. It’s not the biggest change but at least it’s a start.

This poster is mainly about how much school lunch “sucked” before this year.  I made this poster last year during my advertising art class, but haven’t posted it anywhere until now. It’s done in my usual cartoonish style and not targeted towards advanced art.

Feel free to use this poster around your own campus should you wish.  It takes up quite a bit of ink though.

Following the footsteps of my This is Blue Campaign, comes the epic Go Green Campaign.  For those of you unfamiliar with what these two campaigns are about, it is an advertising campaign for an imaginary company.  In this case the company is the color green.  Throughout the campaign period I will develop several advertisements which could run on various media ranging from magazines, to the internet.

Because these are not real companies, no profit is made from any of these campaigns.  They are simply done to better myself as a designer and artist.  It is also my goal to help influence other artists to be creative and develope campaigns of their own.

Below are two 330×300 advertisements which would normally run on a web environment.  Although this is not the standard size for advertisements so it would be resized before it could actually run.

In this advertisement I wanted to portray a friendly, out-going message.  It grabs your attention from the page, because it is not what everyone is used to seeing.  The message is subtle but effective. You will notice that I’ve also embedded the new Jessetalks “mascot” into the design. No, that’s not his real name though…. it’s just for the purpose of the campaign.

This advertisement is a little more straight forward.  The message is displayed in the whole advertisement, and the viewer doesn’t have to look hard to see what it’s all about.  The tagline effectively plays off the whole famous person endorsement sterotype.

Look forward to more additions to the Go Green Campaign Soon!

Jessetalks is in no way affiliated with  The tagline and idea behind this campaign is used as a purely representation of the color green.  Reproduction for education uses only.

My Vault advertisement designed to look like a planning and collaboration board.  The slogan “designed for excellence” is portrayed within the design in great detail. The advertisement would generally run as a full page ad in a magazine. Maybe even a flier as it quickly showcases the message I wanted to get across to the viewers.

I used my old trigonometry and analytic geometry homework in the background as part of the decoration. (What better use for that junk eh?) Don’t copy the answers to the problems though… I won’t held liable for wrong work.

All-in-all I’m quite satisfied with how the advertisement came out.  I feel that it’s quite creative and portrays the idea behind the advertisment well.  Although I’m not quite sure if it portrays the actual product well enough.

On an unrelated side note – I’ve been toiling around with some poetry.  If I really feel the need to be creative I’ll post some of it up.  I don’t want to get too personal though.

Earth Accents

I’ve been working on a few designs entered in the Earth Accents Logo Design Contest.  Although I still feel as if they are a little incomplete. Hopefully the contest holder will be able to provide some quality feedback so I can make the appropriate changes to the design.

For this one,  I fear that I may be doing to much with the whole logo.  It’s a tad busy and could be distracting or hard to print.  I was going for something creative but I knew would be lacking in print ethics.

Just a cut down version of the first logo.  I removed the tree because I felt it may be the reason for the distraction.  I don’t really know how I feel about this version.

Trying to escape from the tree design, I went with something basic.  Its nice but reminds me of something.

For this I took the concept of what an accent should look like and brief clean cut design.  It features the various colors that they were after and can use separately. It’s a simple clean cut logo.

Natural Logic

Natural Logic is some kind of application design company located in Australlia. And, I don’t really care how simple this logo looks. I love it.

Even so I’m expecting it to be eliminated from the contest selection quite soon though.  I’m designing all of these things but i just don’t feel like they match with the company.  They look great, but the connection is lacking.  I’ll sort it out later though; it’s getting a bit too late into the night to do anything about this.

On a side note, I’ll be posting some doodles up soon. I don’t want to flood you with too much advertisement design things.  I’m sure a lot of you are here for other sorts of things.

Gizzi’s is some kind of random company I found looking through a phonebook.  Anyway this is a quick design for their events that they hold nightly at the coffee shop. I was trying to go with a vector type feel to the design.  The circles omitting outward from the main logo helps to draw the viewers attention there.

This design would be used for a poster on telephone polls and such. Sorry about the tops of eraser marks that show up.  There was nothing I could really do to fix that problem.
