We are a technical society for geophysicists and we are having an annual technical symposium in May 2016. We do advertising in various publications and hand out small hard copy 4x6inch reminder 'ads' at our technical luncheons and at other events leading up to the symposium. We want some sort of advertising theme to catch peoples eye. I have attached one of the ads from 2015. We used a chess board and the thinker with a background of colored contours. The thinker was because we are scientists. The background color contours look like what we produce in our daily work as geophysicists. We are mostly involved in oil and gas. This is the link to our event: [url removed, login to view] You can find information on there.
Our overall theme this year is 'Integrity, Knowledge and Wisdom' and we are honouring someone posthumously so we want to keep this professional and dignified so nothing goofy and child-like.
I have attached 3 ads that we used last year to show what we did then. Obviously we do not want to do the same this year but we could reuse the contoured color background if needed on something. As mentioned, attached are three of our ads from last year and our logo for our society and event. I also attached an ad that we had to do for our October technical magazine just so that we had something in. We can expand on this and make it better or switch entirely. Actually, I'm not much of a fan of that October 2016 ad that we put in but maybe if it was improved I would be swayed. Don't worry about the text. I'm just looking for an overall theme to go with.
To be clear, I DO NOT want to use the thinker or the chess pieces/table this year. I am looking for a new idea. This contest is to get a new idea or advertising theme to use in the 2016 advertising. I showed some from last year as an example of the previous year but do not want to repeat that theme. Please do not send me anything with the thinker or chess pieces.
Our overall theme is 'Integrity, Knowledge and Wisdom'. I hope someone has an idea to incorporate this into our advertising but graphically.
My committee has made this suggestion. I have added a graphic to my list with a new symbol1 but it is in gray. It would need to be in color. Can you try to use something like this in your designs?
