“How does my hair look, you guys?”
Matt, photographer and designer extraordinaire, takes a few shots in the front lobby of Power Marketing & Coldwell Banker Innovations. The white wall in the background made it easier for Stacy to be “cut out” and “shrinked” in Photoshop.

Our client, Maryland winery Big Cork Vineyards, wanted a holiday-inspired ad to spread word about a special discount they’re offering: free online shipping through Dec. 15. The ad currently is running in the Frederick-News Post‘s print and online editions. The goal was to feature the offer while creating an eye-catching design that lets readers know the offer is a limited-time, holiday-only special.
Lead Designer Amanda Linthicum chose a red, green and black color palette to agree with the holiday theme. She created the lightbulbs by hand in PhotoShop. The headline copy is catchy, attention-grabbing and holiday inspired. The copy explains why Big Cork’s award-winning wines are the perfect addition for any holiday meal.
