Mayad Newspaper Ad
Something so simple requires a lot of thought in terms of placing elements onto its proper position. This was a pretty simple task really and I think I made
a few a lot of drafts pertaining to this deemed “simple” job. lol!
When Mayad told me that this will be a newspaper ad, I was shaking because it felt like it’s dejavu. I happen to design a couple of poster ads that were published in national and international newspapers and somehow, I would always see some flaws from the work that I did.
That’s just me and my insecurities.
The goal is to position the text and contact details into the photo which should perfectly be balanced to serve as their newspaper ad. Those were just the instructions so I did what I had to do and made several (and I mean several) drafts to present.
It all boiled down to a small logo, some icons, and very minimal text to give out a statement only Mayad could claim its own. The photo is no doubt stunningly beautiful and all it took was a lot of careful thoughts and an understanding of the present colors that are already on the picture. The text and the icons are just secondary to the photo itself.
