Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a private gated community of luxury single family homes located in a tourist area of Costa Rica.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Looking for a single full-page magazine ad that will go in Ideal Living Magazine that advertises the Arenal Hills community of luxury vacation homes. Ideally the ad will convey the luxury and quality of the homes and if possible also convey a sense of the serene nature and/or the adventure tourism activities that draw people to Costa Rica. The Arenal Volcano located near Arenal Hills makes a striking landmark that you can include in the ad but it is not required as we're concerned the volcano imagery may scare people away anyways.
My initial deadline to get this artwork to the magazine is 7/19 with an absolute latest final deadline of 7/22 as the very last day I can submit the artwork to the magazine so I'll be looking to select a winning design by the 19th and will need the press ready artwork before July 22nd at the latest.
Please see the attached "2019_IL_MagazineSpecs.pdf" for how to format the ad for a 1 page ad size. The final deliverable will need to be press-ready following the specified specs in the "2019_IL_MagazineSpecs.pdf" document.
The 4 attachments named "inspo 1-4" are magazine ads that I personally liked and thought could provide some guidance for the style of ad I would like to have made. You are not limited to imitating these examples but may draw from them as much as you wish.
I will attach a collection of our own photos that I think could be useful. More photos of our are also available on https://arenalhills.com/gallery/ and if you see any on there that you'd like to incorporate into the ad just let me know and I'll provide you with the highest res versions I have available.
