I tried creating a pretend ad for animal friendly cosmetics, I've never done something like this before. Bleh! What a pain, hehe... I'd rather paint. Very Happy

Never done this before? Great first try!
What brought this piece about, Kat? Are you finished or is it an evolving concept?
I've had to work on real ads and fake adds. I think it's cool you shared this.
There are some Gragphic designers in here. Design is art.

Crit bits: I like the typesetting on the lower half and the Katherine Bloom logo. I see that you were going for the lipstick being the most saturated and contrasty element which is cool.

To me the face doesn't quite gel with the rest of the ad. The crop pulls the eye off the page instead of guiding it back to the center. The direction of the eyeline also adds to this. Perhaps it would be more engaging if the model (you?) were looking at the camera.

One last thing: I wouldn't do business with Cracktown. Those people are so flaky!
