Project Description

Design A Retro Ad for Your Favorite App

7b7a4141

ASSIGNMENT

Pick out your favorite app and design an ad for it with a retro flair. It’s a good idea to limit yourself to just a few colors; after all, most retro print ads were very simple. Follow these three simple steps to complete your class project in no time:

  1. Start your project by sharing what app you chose
  2. Design an ad
  3. Apply the effect

And that’s all there is to it!

Your class project can be competely custom, but if you’d like some help, here are some fun resources you can use for your design:

  • www.retrovectors.com - Terrific resource for retro-style graphics
  • Adobe Creative Cloud Assets - Also a great source of ready ot use graphics for those with a CC subscription.
  • www.fontsquirrel.com - lots of quality free fonts. Check out the retro category.
