Create a Slick Smartphone Ad

Everyone can remember an advert that caught their eye, but what about the countless ones that didn't? Companies spend thousands of dollars on advertising in the hopes that it returns a profit. If it's successful the company may use you again. But if it isn't the company may blacklist you and never use you again.

If you want to be a successful freelancer then you need to make advertisements that sell. As the saying goes, the customer is always first. And as a freelancer the customer is your client. Don't let them down!

In this tutorial we will be creating a slick billboard advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy S II.
