Description: This is a color full bleed event ad, to promote a 5K using a scanner and Microsoft Word.
Process : I first scanned the image of the 3 boys and then started thinking of my color scheme. I then added boxes and typed out what I wanted the flier to say. The blue boxes are identical to add repetition. I then tried different fonts to see which one would work best. After I aligned the titles with each other and the body copy at the bottom using the ruler on Microsoft Word. I also aligned the text copy with the date time and place. I used contrast to add value in the all of the text boxes by making the boxes a lighter blue and then using a darker orange. To make this finished product I only used Microsoft Word, Epson Scanner, PDF2JPG.net (PDF converter).
