Design – Recruitment Ads

Recruitment? In these troubled times? Well, don’t jump to draft an e-mail. I am talking about the making of recruitment press ads about two years ago.

The Premise
In 2007, the technology company, where I worked, was thinking about conducting a walk-in interview to attract new talent to fill in some positions.
