  • Anyone recommend some good advertising books?

    did you check the links in the frequently discussed topics thread? I know that Jeff Fisher's list is pretty comprehensive and is broken down into categories... check out the book lists here:

    hope that helps some.

      Despite it's title, most of this book is interview with 'old school' masters, and mostly copy writers:

      http://www.amazon.com/Cutting-Edge-A.../dp/9812445579

      Still, I think it's a great book at getting to the essence of great advertising: great copy married to great execution. I like how the big questions are framed by chapters (eg: when to use illustration instead of photos) and all done in the interview process. And the scope of the book is more international than many. FWIW.

              Anyone know who I'd go to for printing fliers at varying sizes? I like using the big online ones because they make it easy. But I need to print a folder and then print inserts that have varying sizes...

              I don't pay for these kinds of things either.

              Mocked-up comps are always useful when showing clients what their work will look like when finished, but a paid subscription to dozens of options...

              This is actually a pretty good example of why a photoshop artist needs to know how to draw.

              I wouldn't pay for a subscription to any free-stock site. The quality is often not there, to begin with.
              Plus, with mockups, for the price of credits, you buy quality pieces as you need them for...

              Hey designers!

              I would like to get some advice on which Mockup site would be the better choice to get a membership on?
