Advert design for the Traditional Maritime Skills Project
Advert to promote the launch of a new virtual learning environment to teach traditional boat building skills. Project was funded through the European Union and the project’s partners including Cornwall Marine Network. Advert was placed in Cornwall’s Marine Guide and Directory - an annually produced A5 business directory.
Distributed across Cornwall’s marine hot spots as part of the directory’s distribution.

A light weight font was used throughout to complement the heavier weighted font in the project’s logo. Gill Sans was the final font selected, a useful font as it comes with a variety of weights.
Pale blue was used to complement the colour of the boat in the image.
Striking image of Falmouth Working Boat sailing to windward, sourced from Cornwall Marine Network’s extensive marine image bank. Used as a way to draw attention to the advert.
Minimal copy to avoid cluttering the ad and avoid drawing attention away from the headline and subheadings.
