I need an ad designed to get attention for my booth at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The ad will be in the Marketplace of the 2015 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books program guide. The Program guide tops the paper on Sunday, April 12, 2015, reaching 1.2 subscribers. This is a newspaper/print only ad-it will not be shown online.
The size is: 2.3 inch x 1.75 inch. So they ad must be enticing and eye-catching at a small size. I hope for it to stand out and look professional. Embellish with a positive, energetic design as you see fit. Highlighting the different "Story topics" in different/alternating colors might be effective. Highlighting the website url or drawing attention to it in some way would be good too.
While you are welcome to admonish the ad's text for persuasive purposes, it should state the following (or something close to this):
Story topics: Teenagers. Terrorists. Drugs. Ancient Aliens.
