Tim Collins' anthology of creative advertising techniques is sure to be a valuable tool for students and professionals alike.
"100 Ways to Create a Great Ad" is the brand new, just released book by Tim Collins that promises to help creatives crack even the hardest of briefs.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
100 Ways was born after Tim noticed that many award-winning adverts could be categorised into different writing, visual or concepting techniques.
