Project Details

  • Templates with accurate, print-ready specifications
  • Note: Please post an additional project if more than one piece of collateral is needed
Additional Details

I actually need something very specific but I didn't see where else to post it! I need an ad (the old fashioned kind) offering free bicycles. Our job readiness program, Apex Bike Factory, teaches workplace skills through a real bike shop run by teens. As part of their service work this year, the teens will fix up donated bikes for "special orders" by families who want to give their children, or adults, a bike for a holiday gift. We need an ad to share this offer and increase Apex visibility.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have brand colors, logos and logo color pairings, website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have all the parameters and information for the project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,002 , allowing us to focus on our mission. We could not pay someone to make this ad; I would just do my best. Your help will ensure that Apex puts a professional, engaging "face" forward and I can use my time to lead!

Apex does not have a PR budget and many people don't know about us. Yet there are hundreds of youth in our area that would benefit from our programs. Our community has one of the lowest median incomes in the state and right now, it's going to be difficult for many families to offer much holiday giving. Our kids want to use their skills to offer a fun, useful gift that will encourage physical activity (weather permitting) AND reduce the stress for parents. This project/ad is a win-win.
