A full-bleed color event ad for promoting a fundraiser using a scanner and Microsoft Word only.
I found an image from Central America taken by Barbara Arroyo, I thought it fit well for this event and used Word to expand its proportion. I used teal colored boxes along and colored stripes to add interaction and contrast. The stripes were also a way that I was able to include repetition. I chose a font for my title that does not have serifs to give it a modern feeling. Something that surprised me were the design features of Microsoft Word, there were many features that I did not know about which were awesome to learn about and utilize. Programs I used: Microsoft Word, Epson Scanner, PDF2JPG.net (PDF converter).
I am involved with a fundraiser to help raise money for individuals in Guatemala. I wanted my audience to have their attention caught by my flyer and want to learn more about this event.
Individuals who enjoys running, walking, scootering, or are looking to support a good cause.
