Index/Access to – 75 Ads.


Here is the FULL LIST of the COPY for my 75 ‘Long’ adverts.

N.B. most of these ads are NOT Type set, just my original copy.

Please also note that I started this creative journey back in June 2013, with only three colours (not Full Colour which I have now), and NO Experience in writing Suicide Prevention. I have learned by trial and error, gained more confidence, now have full colour and use pictures to tell the story to draw and entice my readers into the ad. I have also learned to try to say MORE – with less!

For some of my best and latest work see ‘Latest Adverts’ on this menu bar, but please be aware  I use many of these earlier adverts as a STARTING point for an upgraded version, I will NOT reproduce old adverts without editing with the above in mind.
