Ads Designed While You Wait!

There’s a tattoo shop in Louisville and Lexington called Tattoo Charlie’s with the slogan: “Tattoos While You Wait!” Ridiculous slogan? Yes. Effective? Yes, it interrupts my thoughts every time I see it. Good slogan to swipe to draw attention to this post? Yes!

I’ve been very fortunate to have been very busy lately doing tons of ads. Everything from two page spreads to 1/12 page ads. Local, regional and national. Tourism, real estate, entertainment, motorcycles, horses…

The variety of ads to be created have been challenging and a good stretch for me as a designer. Here are a few samples from the last couple of months:

Think I may have to start an “Ads” section in the portfolio!

Thanks for looking.

(Just a hint… always take a few minutes to archive your projects as you go so you can find them later. I’m still looking for a lot of things I remember but can’t find. Bummer.)
