Contest Brief

Hey guys ,

I want a design for a poster that I am going to be putting around town on street poles for drivers to see.

The Name of our company is called : AuctionInc.


I have a file attached, so you can get an idea of what I am after.


The point of the poster is to GET PEOPLE TO CALL ME. So I need something catchy and easy to read , no clutter!
I was thinking perhaps saying something like :

Stick to THREE colors : RED, Black and White.



We charge 0% commision.

So instead of only using 3 weeks , you can take that out and replace it with "0% Commision" or use both if there is space:)

Heading : AuctionInc (White background)
Main Wording :Keep calm and sell your property in 3 weeks! (must be on a different type of background so it has seperation from the heading)
Second from the Bottom Wording : Gregory (Must be on its own line and have its own background to ensure seperation)
Bottom Wording : cell number (must be on its own line) (Must be on its own line and have its own background to ensure seperation)

Here some pics : [url removed, login to view]

I hope that makes sense , I need a catchy design that will get people to call me etc.
See attached files.

Thanks guys , These will be printed on plastic bourds as you can see from the attachments.

PLEASE NOTE : I want your original "Punch" lines aswell. It does not have to say "Keep calm and carry on" That is an example.

But it must be CLEAN and EASY to read...extreeeeemily easy to read , my number must be Large enough to see at first glance. Again see from the attached files.

I have put in two files. The "New Doc".jpg is the one I want to work on first. The second file is just so you can see our branding and stuff.


So the sign I want to create is purely to get people to call me , I will post another comp up later to redesign the other file.

But please be CREATIVE. Something clever and or witty. You can use pictures or whatever. Aslong as it gets peoples attention! Look here for a bit of inspiration :

Work with Parody's....Maybe : something like : Why So serious???

CREATIVITY PEOPLE!!!!


Hope that is clear , if it is not please message me and I will answer any questions.


*** I see all 3 designs are the very similar and not really what I am after , clearly my wording is not clear enough. Please see the attached file on how each line is seperated and is clearly visible. My name and cell number must STICK OUT from the rest of the poster!

    While I do really like the ones with complex images , I think simpler would be better. If it was a flyer it would be different.

    We dont need our website on the board

    If anything you can put my email address rather. But I dont think that is neccessary either to be honest.

    I think perhaps we should try put a little bit more emphasis on Property and 3 weeks. That is the Juice of the poster!

      If we outline the words "Property" and "3 weeks" then we have 3 focal points and your phone nr will no longer be able to be took into concidernce.

      QR codes might be the perfet solution. You said that those adv posters are drivers. It's better for them to see a QR code because it's very hard to remember a website.

    I got a cool Idea ,

    What about doing the Auctioninc logo in this type of font?

    Hmmm...im just getting creative here...Monopoly is all about property so it would be cool to "Link" up our company with the monopoly game.

      I don't think you are allowed to use a trademark in your adv poster withouth their concern.

    Lets stick with 0% commision and or 3 Weeks.

    Oh btw ,

    We charge 0% commision.

    So instead of only using 3 weeks , you can take that out and replace it with "0% Commision" or use both if there is space:)
