How to create a Ramadan Ad in 4 easy steps

Step1: Create a dark blue-black gradient taking up half of your work space.

Step 2: Put some white brush spots (stars) , create an intersection of two circles (the crescent) and add outer glow effect.

Step 3: Type 'Ramadan Kareem' in Zapfino Linotype font (or Monotype Corsiva if you are bit more outdated) preferably in 18 pointsize.

Step 4: Put your product on the other half of your workspace, preferably under an decorative arch to give it that 'Ramadan touch'.

Congratulations, your Ramadan advertisement is now ready to use. Dont forget to replace the 'year ' and the product picture next year if required.

Now Woke, you can't be so cruel. You know how difficult it is for folks out here to be THAT creative.

PS: Congrats! Thou art a celebrity now. Gulf News has featured thy Solomon Mupesa post.

Thanks Prometheus.

Gulf News seems to make some random selections for that column not related to originality or popularity of the post. So its something I can't boast about.
