Below is a new photography ad I’ll be using for JAC’s Upstairs at McCrady’s series during Spoleto. I have to thank a friend from writer’s group, Matt Dean, who is a font layout genius. He helped tweak my design and sighed, “If I only had a week to work on this…” Though font seems like a simple concept in ad design, font style, size, placement actually effect an ad greatly. And though Matt wishes he had more time, I’m glad he was able to fix the jacked up font layout I had in a matter of minutes.
Matt is also a great fiction writer and is currently a finalist in the 22nd Annual Lambda Literary Awards.
The image in the ad is of Charlton Singleton, musician and conductor of the Charleston Jazz Orchestra.
