Using the same basic design of your original ad, create a new ad which shows an anti-smoking message(see samples in class). You may change the picture, colors, and/or written text, but your new design should be based on the original ad. 5. PARAGRAPH TWO. Explain how you redesigned your ad to sell “not smoking”!
