For this post I have decide to continue with my packaging theme. I have the products, but I need to advertise them. I have created some mock-up adverts which would go into magazine or something similar.
Everything had been created using Adobe Photoshop.
After posting the advert I discovered I can still improve so I changed the paragraph to justify last left and also made the bottle bit darker.
Art is always work in progress and I see the design in a same way.
Now the real thing, the actual magazine.
Anthophila is scientific name for a bee.
The Honey bee is probably the best-known bee around, but over 270 species of bee have been recorded in Great Britain. Honey bees and bumblebees live socially, led by a queen and serviced by male drones and female worker bees.
Solitary bees tend to be smaller and their family unit is made up of a single pair. Although lots of solitary bees can be found in one area, they operate alone. Bumblebees are distinguished by their large furry bodies and species include the black and-yellow striped Garden bumblebee and Red-tailed bumblebee. Solitary bees include mason bees, leaf-cutter bees and mining bees. The Wool-carder bee strips hair from plants to weave its nest, while the Red mason bee lives inside hollow plant stems and holes in wood.
Since 1900, the UK has lost 13 species of bee, and a further 35 are considered under threat of extinction. None are protected by law. Across Europe nearly 1 in 10 wild bee species face extinction.
The outlook for bees right now is quite bleak – and their drop in numbers is a sign of the plight of the natural world as a whole. Across society, we often undervalue nature and what it does for us. The truth is, if we want an economy that provides for everyone’s needs in the long term, we need to look after our natural environment. Our politicians need to understand the importance of protecting the natural world – and protecting bees as key players in it. We’re optimistic we can make a difference – see what you’ve already helped us achieve so far.
