I am searching through my photos for better landmarks but most of them are all sunsets and beaches lol.
If it's for a school project I really don't think anybody is going to sue you. Try flickr or pbase. If you want to officially licence royalty free photos istockphoto.com is better than $$$ sites like corbis or getty.

Nice ads btw... the first one is great. If I were to change one thing it would be the font and drop shadow used around the magnifying glass in the second one.

I like the concept and the ad.

Question for you? Why did you pick a font that's crayon and looks as if a child wrote it?

I thought the Cobalt was more of a singles car. IMO

Nice work.

I think it's a great ad. Probably better than many ad execs that get paid the big bucks. I cannot believe how awful the Superbowl ads were this year.

Actually if I were to improve it I would:

1) Make the cars smaller so people can see/appreciate the things behind them.

2) Instead of having the same pic of the back of the car in 4 screens, use 4 pics of different angles.

3) Use only one "An american revolution"

4) Put the magnifying glass in the middle.

Other than that, looks good.
1) ok
2) I can only use the images they provided me
3) There is only one
4) i don't how can it be positioned in the middle without lots of white space on the left- i will give it a try though

Nikki, what tool did you use to select the car image? Did you freehand select, smart select, or something else?

I must be using the magic wand wrong. It oftentimes selects other things I don't want to select.

OK they want to go with an orange theme, so I have no control over that. But here is a flyer for the event that I made and also the front and rear version of 5x7" glossy cards that will be distributed.

I feel so proud now that this is almost becoming real, I've never designed anything like this, I'm so excited! Yeay for my resume! haha.

Hmm, I forgot to put the white on the back of the card like the flyer. Does this look more consistent?
Also I think the red font on the cards looks better but the white on the flyer stands out better. Should I keep them different or make them both the same?

Oh and here is the updated t-shirts I made--yes I know they're orange.

Apparently their goal is to make us all look like pumpkins.
