4. Creating a Shoe Advertisement Poster Using Floral Elements


In this tutorial you’ll learn how to create an advertisement poster for your personal shoes.

The rest of the concepts you create for the poster will just attract more eyes, but if your product does not look great, and if it is not the focal point of the composition then you may fail, the possible customers will just turn around and look at the next poster.
