Task Description
We have decided to extend our deadline and change the parameters of the project. You can create a design geared at the long-term care market (as the original post requested) OR you can create a design for the hospitality market promoting HD for hotels/motels.

Guidelines for Long-Term Care Ad-

Bulk TV & Internet provides DIRECTV for long-term care and assisted living properties the United States. Our strongest selling points are we can provider the property premium DIRECTV service at up to 70% less than cable. The property can customize their channel line-up and include a FREE community channel. They also don't need confusing set-top boxes in each residents' room.

We are looking for a full page ad for one of the long-term care market magazines we advertise in focusing on the quality HD programming DIRECTV can provide at an affordable price.

Designer MUST submit finalized file in as a collected (fonts & links) InDesign file (either version CS3 or as an INX file).

Please use these initial specs for the ad-

Full pg. trim — 8 1/8” x 10 1/2”
Full pg. bleed — 8 5/8” x 11”
Full pg. live area — 7 1/2” x 10”

Guidelines for Hotel/Motel Ad-

Hotels are Bulk TV's largest market. Many hotels are looking to upgrade to high definition programming in the next year. Until now, it has been a costly and complicated upgrade, however Bulk TV now has an affordable, reliable equipment solution.

The main message we want to deliver is Bulk TV has a reliable, affordable solution available. We can deliver DIRECTV's premium HD programming without the HD equipment cost.

We are looking for ONE main graphic that shows what we do. For example, a flat screen TV with a crisp image coming out of it. We would like a clever one line headline. We will fill in the remainder of the copy.

Attached are also two hospitality ads we have run previously. The same logo and legal statements are required for this ad.

Please use these initial specs for the ad-

Full pg. trim — 10 1/4" w x 13" h
Full pg. bleed — 10 ¾" w x 13 ½" h
Live area on bleed ads is ½ inch in from final trim sizes.

Thanks for the brief! Can i ask you what is the single minded proposition you want to communicate through this ad?

Beast regards

I want the focus to be that Bulk TV is the smart alternative to the cable company because we offer more options. The facility can customize their channel line-up, they don''t have to put an individual set-top box in each unit, and we can provide DIRECTV service for up to 70% less than cable. We also offer a free community channel and a digital HD overlay, which gives residents an option to upgrade to HD.

Will you be requiring the logos of channels in you advertisement, and if it is required could you upload a high resolution channel logos IND file. The images are outsourced from stock sites, so a temporary image is shown in the adv, later is it required to outsourced within the budget you have specified, or you have other stock images which you mite use, could you kindly clarify.

I see the contest has been extended, so I am assuming you have not seen something yet that is satisfactory, so I was wondering if you can offer any feedback on the designs I have submitted to get them to where you need your ad to be? Are you looking for somethng along the same line as your previous ads (that is how I read it) or would you like something totally different?
If you can mssg me, I will do my best to produce an ad to give you positive results.
Thank you,

Hi Julia,

I haven''t found what I am looking for quite yet. I''m sorry if there was any confusion, but we definitely do not want to use the same image of the elderly couple again. I would prefer something totally different for this ad. These concepts are boring. I understand that this is a hard industry to market to, however I am looking for one focus point, one eye-catching image. Keep in mind that while saving money is a main advantage to most facilities, some are more interested in our services as a way to increase the residents'' comfort and keep them entertained. 

Please let me know if you have any additional quesitons.

I would just like to ask if you can provide us a feedback so we know what areas in our concept/design to improve?

Thank you very much!
