P2 Word Poster/Event Ad


  • Description: Design for a Fictional Fundraising Even using a Scanned Color Image for a full bleed Ad using only Microsoft Word.
  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): The Ad is made using only Microsoft Word. I was using Word 2010. It started with a scan of the photo which I found in a book of mine, Fantasy Workshop, Published by ImagineFX. The image is a Digital Painting by Artist Lorland Chen. I cropped the image and adjusted saturation and lighting to change the feel of it a little.I then added the text as well as a transparency gradient to allow a better read for the text. After some critiques, I reworked the design to what it is now.
  • Message: The message is to tell people of an upcoming Medieval Renaissance Fair that is designed to help raise funds for the Local Hospital’s Cancer Research.
  • Audience: The audience is all who are interested in Renaissance Fairs and all who want to help save children from Cancer.
  • Color scheme and color names: Analogous using Gold, Orange, and Brick.
  • Top Thing Learned: The top thing that I learned is to utilize the flow of the image, for example the location of where a face is looking, to control the Hierarchy and Direction of the text.
  • Title Font Name & Category: Amhurst SF, Category: Decorative
  • Copy Font Name & Category: Ariel, Category: San Serif
  • Scanned images used, sources, original sizes, location of scanner used: The scanned image is from the Book Fantasy Workshop, Published by ImagineFX, the Author of the Article the image is used in is Lorland Chen. Original Size: Approximately 8×8. Scanner used: Spori Basement Lab Scanner.

  1. I really like this flier! I love the gradation you did from the tan background to the main image. The image is really nice, and because of the overall design, it does not overpower the flier. One suggestion, maybe try and match your font color to the color of the red shirt on your picture. The color you have now is fine, but they are so similar that the different tones do not actually go together I think. But other than that it is a great flier!
