THE DESIGN BRIEF
It’s the beginning of the year and we are looking to start a campaign on Clearance Sales on the Fashion, Electronics and Mobile phones categories offering our customers a whopping ‘up to 70% discount’ on all items purchased. Konga.com is known for its affordable retail merchandise and this is the first big shopping event in Nigeria. This campaign will be promoted digitally (online) using click ads (web banner ads), on-site banners and outdoor advertising.
You are required to come up with clearance sale designs showcasing Fashion, Electronics and Phones categories for the 4 channels listed below:
- Site Banner (812 x 336px)
- Web banners (300 x 250px and 728 x 90px)
- Print (A5 landscape)
- Billboard (2000 x 731px)
- The design must showcase a variety of products (fashion, electronics and phones) and must also emphasize that it is a clearance sale.
- You are to come up with your own copy/text focused around the theme “Clearance sales – up to 70% off”
