Thread: Designing an advertising poster
Designing an advertising poster 25 Jan 2009 @ 11.46
I want to create an advertising poster geared towards teenagers. I have the following one at present but it isnt very good at all.
Here is our URL
What do you think would be great to include? What colours? I am thinking blue myself to match the site. What colour background? Any ideas welcome

Sorry Michael; I like the message but the medium is bland.
If I at my age think so, what on earth will teens think? (A government poster from the 50's?)

Sorry, I may have been a little too harsh in my criticism. I just designed a website for a detergent company using environmentally friendly products - guess what?
The site (light-blue fade to white - with reflections) looks like your poster.
I think in targeting any segment of a community, you have to research what makes them look up and listen.
Teens seems too big an objective to target effectively. Try narrowing it down. Maybe you need a series of posters for different sub-groups.
It may be best to ask yourself: "Where will this poster be hung?"

Hmm.. I like the idea of narrowing a set of posters down to where theyll be hung. The thing is though, what differences would be needed between ones for say, a library, a youth club or a leaisure centre. I cant think of differences that would be needed.
As for what do teens look up to, that is a very hard question to answer. Everyone is different in what they look up to. I guess good choice of colours would attract almost any teenager and also something modern looking too.

What books can't teach you
A youth club
If youth clubs in your area are similar to youth clubs here; municipality or charity funded meeting places for disadvantaged youth;
- Fringe Culture
I have no idea what a leisure center is.

Leisure center is like a public (run down) swimming pool/gym/events hall which costs a fortune. (£5.50 for a 90 min swim... c'mon?)
Have you tried looking at other posters that have worked well, and drawing inspiration and techniques from them?
Places like connexions, peta2 etc. seem quite effective at getting young peoples attention.
