Upcoming Book Signing for A Thug’s Redemption at Horizon Books

January 21, 2013 A Thug's Redemption  No comments

I think this flyer is beyond DOPE! I wanted to spread the word about my book signing a little more effectively than I've done previously with just using word of mouth, Facebook and Twitter. I know I am a visual person and will most times remember something if it is shown to me in a captivating way. I was hoping to achieve that with a flyer promoting my next book signing which is going to be on Friday February 8th 2013 at Horizon Bookstore locate in the Gallery in Center City Philadelphia. This book signing will be from 4p-7p and I am so excited. I tried designing the flyer myself, but for some reason, my creative juices just were not flowing this time. I made an announcement on Twitter that I was looking for a graphic designer that could turn me out a FABULOUS flyer and I was beginning to get flooded with responses. I mean my mentions were on FIRE! I'm a first come first serve kind of person. I began looking through those who were prepared to direct me to their website where I could view their work and was very impressed with 22 Media Lab. They had just the kind of style I was looking for. I immediately responded to them, we exchanged emails and withing two hours, they turned out this fabulous flyer on the left of this post and I cannot wait to get my hands on the posters and flyers so I can begin passing them out on campus and as I commute to and from school to spread the word even further about my book signing. You can't deny the flyer is pure dopeness. So if you are looking for a graphic designer for flyers or even a book cover, hit them up on twitter @22MediaLab and let them know Yani sent you. I promise you will not be disappointed in their work.

So I hope as many people as possible can make out to my book signing. Show up and Show out. It is definitely an Urban Fiction Affair! Philly Support Philly!
