Mag Ads That Will Never Be Published




Yesterday, I finished my advanced graphic design class that I had been taking. I turned in a huge project where we could pick any client and redesign their logo and packaging (for one of their products) and create three magazine ads for them. I picked the rock band Kings of Leon. I was so proud of the project I thought I'd share it with you. The logo wasn't supposed to look how it looks. There is a stupid white box around it and both my professor and I couldn't figure out why. So use your imagination and think of the album at the bottom of the ads, with just the black part of the logo. My idea was to put thought provoking images with lyrics from the bands album. I had not originally planned to do them in black and white, but after doing the first one I thought it looked really good and it made the album stand out more. I'm proud of it because it turned out ten times better than I thought it would. I plan to send the band these and tell them why I did them.
P.S. If you can't see them too well, click on the image and it should bring it up bigger.

These are awesome!!! I totally love the middle one! Good job! What software did you use to create the logo? I use Adobe Illustrator CS at work sometimes.

I could tell you why you got the white box around the logo and show you how to get rid of it if you're interested in learning.
