I am so proud of myself for having an advertisement published in an actual newspaper! I mean, I graduated with a B.S. Interior Design degree and graphic design is not my forte but MY NEWSPAPER AD WAS PUBLISHED! wooohoo! Can you feel my happiness? :)
And yes, it has to be framed and hanged on my wall. :))
I was tasked by my boss to work on this newspaper advertisement for our modular kitchen (Stormer) during my 2nd week at work (if I'm not mistaken). I was actually very, very nervous because as I have mentioned before, this isn't my forte. The thing is, I know that he's aware that I know how to use Photoshop because I mentioned it on my resume and he just wanted to see my idea. So I did my best and I was so glad that he liked it! The newspaper advertisement was first published on September 22, 2015 in the Philippine Star and upon seeing it in my local email at the office, I immediately texted my dad. My dad bought the Philippine Star newspaper that day but he wasn't able to find the ad I made. So mejo disappointing because my happiness was short-lived because maybe the ad wasn't really published? So when I got home that day, I looked for it myself. Apparently, the newspaper my dad bought was yesterday's paper. My mom was in Iligan, Mindanao that week and she used newspapers to wrap her pasalubong. I looked for the ad in the newspaper she used as wrappers, and lo, and behold, I found the advertisement I made! Hence, the crinkled look as you can see. haha.
But I'm just so proud of myself for having my first ever newspaper ad in the Philippine Star Newspaper. Yay! Will there be a second, third, fourth, fifth one? I don't know. But I'm extremely happy for this because I'm not an Advertising Arts graduate but I have this newspaper ad. Yehey! hehe :))
And I have proud parents as well. :">
P.S. The Newspaper Advertisement had been published 3x now. :)
