I need 10 or so TOTAL, real nice, sample, dummy POP (Point Of Purchase) poster type ads, representing a variety of retail categories, such as restaurants (Mexican, Chinese, Pizza, Subs), dry cleaner, auto repair, liquor store, coffee shop, ice cream shop, hair salon, retail clothing store, dentist, chiropractor, anywhere that has retail foot traffic.
Each design should have a call to action offer, such as happy hour, shirts cleaned for .99, summer dresses on sale, ask about tooth whitening, oil change special, lunch buffet, etc. Essentially we need samples of what perhaps a window sign might say to draw people into the store, an offer, special, product announcement, etc. the specifics are not important.
The designs should be colorful, with use of vibrant photos of items applicable to the various store type, with limited use of text, mostly a larger typeface, viewable from 10-20 feet, with just one or two dominant sentences about the offer, artistically integrated with the photos. No brands or company names required, generic designs only that could be used in any business of the type being designed.
A variety of sizes are acceptable from 24 inches x 36 inches, horizontal or vertical up to 48 inches x 120 inches, designed at 100 dpi actual output size. Borders, artistic treatment of text and photos, collection of photos, there are really no specific guidelines, just be creative and think about it as a giant flyer.
Again, think about a POP, full color poster type product you would see in the window of a chain, franchisee retail store, showing the product with a line or two of selling text.
I need as many as 10 samples of various sizes, subject matter,, delivered in high res photoshop files is fine. The award will go to the designer that has the best 2 designs of entirely different subject matter, then I can award up to 3-4 more prizes of $100 ($50 per design). I will be leaving feedback for each design, so you'll know the look I'm going for. There may be opportunity for much more work for a few designers that show a knack for this type of design. Thanks
