The long and long of it
(that seems to be Blogger's image limit, so a 48 sheet long copy poster was going to struggle. Sorry. Will try to figure a way to post it elsewhere to be viewed bigger)
Just finished, I hope successfully, a bit of 'can't hurt' fun roaming my ad territory, but neatly, and coincidentally, also possibly with a nice rub-off for Junkk.com.
londonlongcopy.com is how I like my competitions (actually most things): fun & free.
I was invited to take part a while ago, and determined this time not to leave it to the last minute.
Fate somewhat intervened, in that I have only just got back after a wee spell enjoying the hospitality of the NHS. All well now, but a large hole in the month's traffic management plans.
I had the idea, and I had the copy, and I had a rough layout. What I didn't have at 24hrs notice was an AD/designer.
Fortunately, I have made some new chums. Taylor & Taylor (with pix on homepage of my fave ever bridge) just happen to be affiliated to the IP guys handling RE:tie's marketing, and what with one thing and another, the deed got done. Ta, guys.
I actually have high hopes. Fingers crossed. Wish us luck. Especially all you Junkketeers in London:)
Didn't even make the shortlist:( Some nice ideas there, but frankly I think ours could have shared such good company too. Will never understand how judging works.
