Ad Campaigns for Magazines, Newspapers and e-Mail Marketing


Product and service ads are a great way to zero in on your target audience — BUT they have to look great and instantly deliver a clean, effective and understandable message

Bootniks® ad and flyer for shoe and boot stores

AMSPEL, LLC of Florida has created an effective method to keep boots looking their very best by keeping them from folding and creasing the leather when you take them off. The product is called Bootniks and is make in the form of a bear and a bunny with long "legs" that fit inside the boots to keep them from folding over in your closet. We took one of their existing ads and redesigned it to give it more impact and professionalism.

New orthodontics ad campaign for Bay Dental Center based on surveyed research

Bay Dental Center of Redondo Beach, California hired us to create a new campaign for their expanded orthodontics services. The project required a redesign of the company's logo, text writing based on survey results and some extensive Photoshop retouching work on stock photography — and all in a very short 5-day turnaround. We purposely avoided the "happy, smiling people" images you see in every dental ad. There was no time for a custom photoshoot, so stock photography had to be used. A great deal of retouching was done on each photograph. The 3 mouths shown in the iPads were from different people, making the teeth and gums noticeably different. Retouching was done to create teeth in each mouth that had roughly the same shapes, and a gum line that matched throughout. The client was blown away with the results. Additional retouching was done on the "before" girl by adding closed eyes to give her an embarrassed and shy look due to her misaligned teeth. These eyes were taken  from a different photograph and then sized and the skin tones blended to match properly.

A continuing series of 1940's-style detective ads for Churchill Claims Services (insurance claims investigators)

We recently created an email marketing campaign for Churchill Claims based on the similarity of what they do and the classic old-time 1940's radio plays of Phillip Marlowe, Sam Spade and Johnny Dollar. Churchill always goes the extra mile to get the information needed for insurance companies to either approve or deny an insurance claim. This campaign demonstrates with humor and interest that Churchill always gets the facts, regardless of the situation or difficulty. The campaign has gotten quite a following over the last few months. The stories are informative, entertaining and they've significantly increased the number of claims submissions.

Ads created for VITALS, a food supplement company in Amsterdam

We've been designing ads, packaging, catalogs for VITALS in Amsterdam for over 7 years. The ads below were created to introduce a new fish oil product line from Minami. By the way, for those of you who get depressed, instead of taking pharmaceuticals, try a good quality fish or krill oil to beat the blues (and without all the nasty side effects).

Advertising campaigns with a professional and consistent look and feel

A vital aspect (pardon the pun) of successful advertising design is a consistent and attractive image that creates brand recognition in the mind of your target audience. This series of ads (and many others) were created for VITALS in Amsterdam to promote their successful line of food supplements that are sold in the Netherlands and across Europe. VITALS main customers are naturopathic (orthomolecular) practitioners who proscribe vitamins, minerals and herbs instead of pharmaceutical drugs.

VITALS has flown our staff to Amsterdam twice in 2009 and 2012 to work on marketing campaigns for the company. It's been a challenging and exhilarating experience to work abroad and in Dutch (which we don't speak). Fortunately, the vast majority of the population in the Netherlands is fluent in English.

BRB regularly gives back to local community projects by taking out support ads in civic fundraising publications. We've had the pleasure of designing many of these ads for them over the years. We designed BRB's logo and created a new corporate image for them in 2001, and have rolled out many different design projects with this consistent, fresh look. We applaud BRB for their continuing community support.
