Tucson Real Southwest Ad Campaign (Hiker)

Print Ad Design:

Tempting Visitors with Outdoor Adventures

Tucson Real Southwest Hiking AdThis is an ad campaign that I designed when I was the creative director at the Metropolitan Tucson Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Based on a study by the Arizona Office of Tourism that showed that travelers respond more to imagery than copy in print advertising, we opted to feature only one large image and very little copy in the ads in this campaign.

With nothing other than an image, four words, and a logo for the ad content – the font selection was a very important element for setting the mood. I created a type treatment that combines a classic serif style, for a sense of history and timelessness, with a romantic script and flourish for a hint of the luxury resort settings that many travelers enjoy in Tucson.

This ad won a bronze Addy Award in two categories in the Tucson Advertising Federation’s 2011 Addy Awards competition. The campaign also won a bronze Addy.
