We are not the boring market research trainig you are accustomed to from OTHER training porviders.

Our company is called "Research Rockstar" because we want YOU to feel like a Research Rockstar..

What print design styles do you like?

I like things that are clean, esp when the top half of the ad makes a powerful statement or has a strong hook. Too many B2B ads are painfully text heavy.

What colors do you want to see in your print design?

As appropriate to match or be compatible with our logo. You can also check our website for color ideas: http://www.researchrockstar.com/

What colors do you NOT want to see in your print design?

Red, pink.

What adjectives should best describe your print design?

Clever, fun, powerful.

How will you use the print design?

Full page ad in a trade magazine.

What content must be included in the print design?

Our logo. I have attached a few versions/file formats (pls let me know if you need something else for file format). We usually use the blue one but the clear may be handy if you have a blue background that is similar to our blue logo. Do not put our logo on a background color other than that type of blue/

Written copy etc in attachment. I also describe two ideas for the imagery--but I am open to other ideas.

I expect the design will use stock photography so it is important that I have permission to use that photography in a magazine. I don't want to have to worry about copyright issues or additional royalty fees.
