    Ok, I clicked the right button this time(and not jacking someone’s thread).

    The assignment is that we have to make a print ad for ourselves (demonstrating our knowledge of graphics programs) and come up with a USP(unique selling proposition) that makes us stand out or different from everyone else. (Demonstrating our creative and knowledge of marketing).

    We have to include why we are special(in a tagline-esque) format, contact info, address, and when we are available to work.

    I've already printed it but if you guys can come up with any other really good suggestions then I can reprint it.

    Critiques?

    I've got all the edges beveled, and I'm not going to bleed it to the edges.

    And no, I didn't bleed in front of 5,000 fans while fighting a profesional fighter for the title. Thats 3 fights that I combined for that part. I got my ass beat in front of 5K people, I fought a profesional boxer in MMA, and I've won a small events 170lbs Ameatur belt.

    You can stretch the truth for a good grade, right? :mamoru:

    In advertising deadlines are very important. Often the creative team is on a very tight schedule for getting things ready and sent to the media planning team. They preach to us in school about the stress of constantly having to meet deadlines. From what the teachers are telling us you will often just have a day or two to have creative samples complete and ready to send off. Its a big part of the job.


    *edit

    I'm so fucking ready to graduate. I've been in school to long and I'm sick of it.

    ugh, 2 more weeks.

    why is there a picture of you with your shirt off posing like a fighter then

    it just seems unprofessional to me but I don't work in that industry, good luck though

    My teacher wants us to use something that makes us diffrent and speical.

    I'm not really diffrent or speical.

    I've got shitty grades, my creative ideas aren't that good, and I'm not really diffrent from anyone else in my class except for this.

    I mentioned the idea to her and she said run with it and see what I could come up with :dunno:

    Im not really good at this kind of stuff.

    I think its a great idea, I'm not 100% sold on the layout right now as it is though. I suck ass at this stuff, so its not like I could give any suggestions lol, if I think of something I'll post in here.

    Edit: Like what I'm trying to say is there isn't enough emphasis on what you are trying to get across in the poster, but rather more of an emphasis on you being a fighter, ya know? I dunno, I can't even describe what I mean :rofl: I really like the way you've presented it with the "if done blah blah blah" thing, it works well.

    thats how i feel most of the time:hs:

    I know what your talking about though, but I was killing my self coming up with copy that got the message across...and thats all I could come up with.

    I've busted my ass on the written part of the assignment, so if she doens't like this it won't kill my grade.

    Ya, I'm so uncreative so its 100% better than anything I could come up with :rofl: . The blurb of text on it works well in my opinion though :bigthumb:

    You don't have any pictures of yourself do you? lol, I have NOTHING to do tonight, I've been bored all day. I finished exams a week ago, and start work tommorow, but until then I have nothing to do, and I've seriously accomplished nothing over this week lol. At the very least it could help me practise with photoshop a little bit more :rofl:

    Anyways, I wouldn't mind sort of putting together a quick rough draft to show you how I woulda done it.

    i used curves (small s curve), desaturated the red and yellow, reduced noise on you (left most of it on the background), burned the wall paper, blackened with brush tool the bevels.

    picture now reminds me a bit of 300.

    I'd do her too.

    Shes like 45 but in good shape. You could tell she was the cheerleader type.

    One of the hotter teachers I've had.
