With Australia making it through to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, I had some left over marketing budget from the 2010 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, so using this and some old colleagues of mine who now work at Alpha Magazine in Australia we produced ‘Congratulations’ adverts, which were printed in the July 2009 issue of Alpha
Magazine, commending Australia for making it through.
Negotiating a great price with Alpha and some extra banner ads for AFC Champions League in future issues, I had to come up with the ad design myself.
I am no graphic designer, but think I did ok with the limited resources I had at my disposable. In fact, I have this colour print up at my desk at work, but this could just be patriotic pride.
