How mpdaugherty started their other graphic design journey
Portage Motors is a small used car dealership based in Kent, Ohio. We often advertise our cars online, but the default Craigslist view is very ugly and we'd like to stand out.

People looking for used cars online
I need a PSD file into which I can put information and photos for advertisements. Every month we have ~15 cars that we sell online, so we will need this template to look great with different types of cars (e.g. anything from pickup trucks to convertibles in various colors). Each car also has a different description and available features, so we need space for that information as well. I've included an example PSD that includes all the required sections - it's just ugly because I designed it myself…
* The PSD should be 800px - 1000px wide
* Have a title section
* Have a section to list options and features
* A button to click to schedule an appointment
* A space for our logo
* A space for our address
* A space for a map to our dealership
* A call to action that encourages people to call us right away
* A space for a free form description of the car
* Room for a few featured photos
* A section for extra photos that we could easily expand. In the example PSD, you can see the layer group called 'Extra Pics' - sometimes we have up to 30 photos for a particular car, so we could easily repeat this section vertically and add more photos.
* Extra points for designs that can easily change color schemes, but this is not a strict requirement.
* If you use any unusual fonts, please make sure they're freely available so that I can alter the text for future cars.
* I'm looking for different/unique layouts because I don't want all of our ads to look too similar. Therefore, please look at the example ad to see what sections are required, but also make sure your design is different.
