Description: A color full-bleed event ad to promote a fundraiser using only Microsoft Word and a scanner.
Process: I scanned my image, and inserted it into a Word document. I then added boxes in two different shades of blue. I filled in the boxes using the text tool. I used two fonts (one serif and one sans serif to create contrast). Programs I used: Microsoft Word, Canon Scanner, PDF2JPG.net (PDF converter).
Message: There is a banquet to raise money for renovation costs at an assisted living home. I wanted people who saw this flyer to have their interest piqued and consider attending.
Audience: Anyone looking to help raise funds for the assisted living home renovation.
Top thing learned: I learned how to scan and check the image size, and also how to design in Word.
Color scheme and color names: Monochromatic, Blue
Title Font Name & Category: Baskerville – Serif
Copy Font Name & Category: Avenir Next – Sans Serif
Scanned images used, sources, original sizes: The image was scanned from the April 2015 Ensign. The image was originally only 7″ x 4.5″ and I scanned it at 300 resolution. Image final scan size was 750 pixels x 1050 pixels
