Outdoor Canada has produced a classic SIP. The mother brand is clearly identified in the upper left corner. The word HUNTING played out loudly. SPECIAL ISSUE in the traditional “sky bar” space at the top can’t be missed. The “celebrity” cover boy is a Giant Buck. The main sell line in the classic position upper left, and is handled beautifully tucking in behind the left ear, with a blue “starburst” tucked under the right ear. Lots of hooks with great benefit-oriented sell lines.
Ontario Out of Doors has opted for the “less is more” approach. The mother brand is handled nicely at the top right. The word HUNTING is about as large and powerful as it could possibly be, with the word Annual in script layered nicely. This approach uses a montage of images, both predators and prey, that evoke the feeling of actually being out in the field.
Both covers are powerful in their own way.
