1/2 Page - March/April 2011
This issue's ad focused on the special show - "Ticket to Broadway." I used some elements from my previous ad, including the logo, website, and contact information. I created the "Ticket to Broadway" text with "Playbill" Font. I designed the tickets and entire ad in Adobe Illustrator. I had the idea for an ad that faded to black on the bottom to support the text, but with a New York skyline, bright lights, or sunset look. Although I could draw these elements, I remembered seeing them before. They are royalty free at these two locations. I just made them fit the design, and altered the colors.
