This assignment was to create an advertisement for a typeface using only typographic solutions.  It took me a while to decide to add this one to my blog.  I couldn’t quite decide if I liked it or not.  The piece feels to me as though it is lacking something.  In the end I decided to put it up here because parts of it were sucessful.  For my typeface I chose Copperplate Gothic.  That particular typeface is often used on corporate nameplates, so I tried to make part of the ad look as though it was a nameplate.  That was the part of the ad that I felt was sucessful.  The rest of it was just kind of blah.  The typeface is clean, so I tried to reflect that in the design, but it felt a bit too clean to me in the end.
