4. Start the Elimination Process a) Getting rid of the bad ideas. Illuminate clichés. b) Explain your concept to somebody else. c) Simplify the idea. d) How will you explain (sell) it to your client? Think what you will say to support your choice of images, text, etc.

What kind of man are you looking for: young, hip, how old, happy or grumpy, indoors or outdoors, color or black & white, etc.? b)Use royalty free image libraries such as c)Get owners permission to use photos for commercial purposes.www.flickr.com
6. Start Working on a Computer a)Decide on a layout b)Decide on a color palette c)Choose appropriate fonts d)Establish hierarchy (Which text is more important and why. Which elements should be large, which should be small, etc.)
Emphasis & Hierarchy
Hierarchy - Definition HIERARCHY - the process of ranking elements (graphics and text) in order of importance. Hierarchy is the basis for every design decision. Ask yourself this question:
What Do I Want The Viewer to See 1 st ?
Using High Contrast 1. Set items apart through the use of high contrast. 2. Make bold design moves - not subtle ones. Slight variations irritate the eye and confuse the viewer.
Key to Clear Hierarchy: Rank & Simplify 1. White space is your friend!
Key to Clear Hierarchy: Rank & Simplify 2. Dont cram too much information, graphics on one page. Keep it simple!
Key to Clear Hierarchy: Rank & Simplify 3. Group related elements bullet points, lists, names, etc… and isolate them for emphasis. It helps to brake up blocks of text and graphics.
Adding Contrast with Text 1. Bold, italics, UPPER CASE, underlined… 2. Size text, but dont overdo it. Dont use more than 3 different text sizes in the same composition.
Adding Emphasis Through the Use of Color 1. Use color to separate elements or establish a clear focal point. 2. Use colors sparingly - not too many.
Adding Emphasis Through the Use of Color 3. Saddle differences in color dont work. Use good contrast, bold colors.
