MAKE THE WORK
- The format for our campaign is to combine your artwork with our branding. Creatively combine the logo images in our toolkit with your artwork.
Most times, keeping a simple color relationship or placement of art is effective in keeping a balance of all of the design elements.
How does the interplay between text and image work together? How does the artwork and our messaging work to inspire people?
Keep a high resolution copy of your work (300 DPI at least).
