Please critique my latest HR 1207 flierSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 03/20/2009 - 15:50
I was messing around last night on the computer and this the rough draft I came up with. Explanation of purpose below, and feedback welcomed!
In our busy, super rushed world, people don't have much time to read. This flier is the equivalent of a sound bite. It catches their attention with something familiar. The FedRes is a play on the FedEx logo, and the now well known quote "The Federal Reserve is about as Federal as Federal Express. I think Eustace Mullins said it first, then it was picked up on by Ed Griffin, and I heard Kucinich say it somewhere. It is catchy and effective, and most people don't know it, and are shocked when they hear it. It catches their attention.
I envision this not only as a flier, but as a postcard. You can get a stack of 500 postcards printed online for super cheap - $25 or so. Upload the image, and a week later, you get a stack of post cards in the mail. This is the beauty of being digital. Then you can send these to your representatives in Congress. Shower them with them. Have postcard writing campaigns. Letters are one thing, but visual images are another, especially if they get a bunch of them.
So, what do you think? Feedback encouraged. I'll probably do a couple of variations, based on the feedback.
Thank you and have a great weekend!!! I'll be back online in a few hours.
