Good advertising design must accomplish four things:

Before you can sell anything you have to get their attention. This is the prime mission of the creative concept. Shock them, inform them, entice them, amuse them or promise them...but get their attention.

No room for artsy-trendy here. Copy, typography and graphics must be concise, clear and readable.

Build an image. Order today. Call. Clip the coupon. The goal of most marketing communication is to sell. Make it easy! Don't forget WIFM. "What's In It For Me?" It is the prime question.

The best idea is to accomplish the goal with the least possible cost. Not chintzy...cost effective


Consumer Print Advertising
These ads are not afraid to sell price points while appealing to the customers epicurean urges. Don't be afraid to use proven motivators like FREE, DISCOUNT, or SAVE MONEY. Good food or service is even better when it is a bargain!

Directory Advertising
This form of advertising has to do everything conventional advertising does but must go further. Every sales point, service and offer must be included, because any one of these might be a sales closer! These ads helped a new Phoenix Moving Company build to a multi-million dollar business in a few short years.

Professional Print Advertising
These ads for a pharmaceutical company which ran in medical journals are clean, attention getting and professional. Both appeal to the emotional side of medical professionals but still offer an end user benefit.
Business to Business Advertising
Business need to know where to get what they need and why it is better, faster or cheaper. These ads for a supplier to the hospitality industry offer solid answers while establishing the environment where the products are used.

Consumer Service Advertising
This often overlooked and unglamorous category is often the domain of the amateur or publication production service. Because we are so saturated with it in every print media from coupon mailers, flyers and newspapers, it is even more important that these be well conceived and designed. This series for a floor cleaning business attracts attention and offers clear benefits and savings.

Institutional Public Service Advertising
Most public service ads address a known problem or concern. This ad uses fear as an attention getter, but offers a solid solution.

Image advertising
for an upscale collectible car dealer, repair and restoration company. You gotta look the look.
