Who are you known as?
Amigo-US Phone Rental
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We rent cellular phones to people traveling to Israel. We offer phones, blackberry and wireless modem service. We are the exclusive distributor of nextel style walkie talkie service for North American travelers to Israel.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I am looking to design an add geared to Ultra orthodox jews who travel to Israel for an annual pilgrimage in honor of the holiday Lag Ba'Omer. (If you are unfamiliar see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lag_BaOmer
In short it is a one day celebration at the grave site of a holy rabbi where hundreds of thousands of men come from all over the world to pray, dance and participate in the ritual bonfires.
We are looking to place ads in local newspapers and signs in targeted neighborhoods for the travelers from the USA to rent phones with us for their trip.
The ad should feature some of the images attached, it must be clear that this is a Lag Baomer ad for Amigo phone rentals.
I dont like ads with raging messages, we like simple and to the point, sometimes less is more.
The ad should include the following info:
"Order online or visit your local Amigo dealer"
Our company's catch line has allways been "Going to Israel? Take an Amigo with you" - you do not have to use it, but you are welcome to.
Ads should include our logo; our toll free phone number "1-888-264-4687" and our web site "http://www.amigo-us.com"
ADDED 5/6/11 - We decided to give away up to 2 weeks of rental free (with certain plans) so on any design i would like to see you add an attention grabber "Up to 2 weeks FREE RENT" with an * to notate in small on bottom "*with the purchase of any bundle plan"
And I added images of phones in case you want to include in your design
