The most important function or role of the headline is to
•
•
attract the readers' attention and
make them interested in the remainder of the

Design Guidelines
 Balance
 Do the elements in the materials work with each other?
 Dominance
 One element should be larger than the others to draw
attention to the ad
 Flow
 Sequential eye movement
 Proportion
 Size should be determined by importance
 Coherence
 There must be harmony among the elements
 Unity
 How well the ad holds together in terms of total effect
Formal balance can create a very orderly look and feel.
Informal balance
can create
desired eye
movement
through an ad.
Emphasis in an ad will lead the reader to
focus on one layout element more than
another

Art: Rough or Pencil Layout
 Use actual dimensions
 Mock up to best simulate color, type
size, text block size, photo size, drawing
size, etc.
 Incorporate actual headlines and
subheads when possible
 Create the look & feel of the material
without having completed components
Art: Comprehensive Layout

inserted
 Used to communicate creative concepts
to client
 Actual dimensions, colors, paper types,
etc.
Typography
Copy: Final Copy
 Corresponds to art director’s final layout
 Copywriter’s complete & polished effort
 Takes SEVERAL drafts to reach final
copy
 Final copy needs time to “cool”
Evaluating Layouts
 Will the layout attract the prospect?
 Does the layout reflect values & tastes of the target markets?
 Is the product the star?
 No “art for art’s sake”
 What is the point of the layout?
 Does the layout grab the customer & encourage involvement?
 Is the layout inviting & readable?
 Obscure types hurt the eyes.
 Reverse type – a BIG NO NO!!!
 Are the color combinations right?
 For ad space: How does the ad look in its editorial
environment?
Evaluating Copy
 Lots of checklists & how-to guides
 Copy should be clean & clear


Language is simple without being simplistic
Present tense, active voice
 DON’T


USE THE VERB “TO BE”
Friendly & conversational, not patronizing
Makes sense to the customer
 Long v. short copy
Evaluating Copy
 Fact of life

80%+ of people who see an ad don’t read the copy (Ogilvy
1985)

If the headline doesn’t catch ‘em, they’re lost till next time
 Benefits sell – features don’t sell
 The call to action
 Copy should do everything a personal sales call does
 White space
 Ease of ordering
