Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?


Ever thought which is the hardest job for graphic designers? Let me…It is to effectively visualize a concept into a single image. This is the exact requirement in creating a powerful print ad for newspaper, magazine or billboards. A print ad copy consists of two elements: visual imagery and typography. Although a picture is worth a thousand words, but the power of words cannot be underestimated. And the best way to illustrate words is through effective use of typography.


Challenges for Graphic Designers in Print Ads:

Creating print ads is quiet a challenging job for the graphic designers. There are a few reasons that cause the making of print ads a little tricky, e.g:

  • • Say more in Less Space: For starters, a print medium has less space than any other advertising medium. You need to communicate efficiently and effectively.
  • • Lack of Emotions: Print ads lack the emotions that TV ads carry. You need to manipulate the words and pictures to create an attractive copy.
  • • No Sound or Visual effects: In creating a print ad there are no visual aids or sound effects, you use an immovable media to create a moving ad.

In order to get a better understanding of how typography serves the effectiveness to print ads, let us take a look at some of the brilliant ads. For your understanding and inspiration, I have collected 22 creative typographic print ads.

    The coke lemon one is cool, nice and simple and very memorable. I like the Burger King wrap ones too.

    This is really a mind blowing collection. Every Ad speak thousands of words. I was really amazed by these creative ads. Considering the design and the concept, The Prevention Plan and Pivot Boutique Karma are the best I think.

    The McDonald’s one makes me worry lol: “in ALMOST every state it’s illegal to eat your roomate”.

  1. ArenaCreative On November 23rd, 2010 at 9:22 am

    Awesome collection – the Mickey D’s ad is hilarious. DON’t EAT YOUR ROOMATE! I tried a doodly type stock image like this once, and it took me forever.

    A true understanding of fonts is a great asset to any designer. I am always yelling over to the graphic design team for font suggestions.
