This is one of those moments when I figure I have to take a bit of time off from drawing or painting and put my neurons into something I used to do - advertising design and copywriting.
Teddy, the florist, is joining this big wedding and bridal trade fair and he asked me to design a flier for him. It's the usual half-bond paper size affair with a random smattering of pictures with some text that simply indicated the contact numbers and name of the florist.
"Give me that and I'll cook up something that people will take some time to read and actually sell you as an excellent florist," I told him.
After half a day of sitting in front of the computer, composing some lines and laying out the images of his excellent floral designs I filched from his hard drive, I came up with a simple flier above.
"Eeek, Dan... I like it. It's so sosyal," he screeched.
"Well, I hope when people read that they'd buy more of your great bouquets and you have more business," I uttered. I was actually thinking, "Hmmm, I'm kinda rusty in the copy writing department, but it still is there."
I also did his blue logo which I figured would make a neat button. He likes it.
Oh, for those reading this post, do come at the launch of the book (I am sounding repetitive) EARTH TALES - 3 Ecofables for Children. It's on March 8, Sunday at 3 p.m. at 1/OF Gallery in Serendra.
If you have kids... bring them. :-)
