A huge difference between ‘Design’ and an ‘Advertisement’ is that Designs are pictures which INTEND to communicate a company idea and Ads are what are used to sell a company’s product or services.
Advertising isn’t what it used to be either. There are dozens of new ways to advertise that costs a fraction of the price of traditional advertising. Today it’s a matter of putting time instead of money into a campaign. The best part: it can hit twice the audience reach.
Don’t try to manage it yourself. Well, you could. Go right ahead, list your offerings; prices, products and services, discounts, deals, etc… and you are very likely to attempt boring your customers into buying your stuff. 😁 At the firm, we call these types of advertisements and listings the “sad and sorry” approach. These types of advertisements are a real yawn.
A more successful approach is to use humor. The writing and graphics in Trader Joe’s “Fearless Flyer” is an amazing feat of reader engagement meets solid information leaving the sad and sorry approach DEAD; a defeated corps on the battlefield for your attention and audience engagement.
Doing your own ads, graphics and copywriting is like doing your own brain surgery. You can, but that doesn’t mean you should.

We worked with Scot Rossillo [ inventor of the Rainbow Bagel ] early on, in Williamsburg, and actually helped SAVE his first Bagel store there. He thought it was a clever little joke to mock the area with the Starbucks-like signage NOT fully realizing that he was deeply offending people in 2001.
