text and translation ZEP flyer

pic of flyers for ZEP MiddelburgMeet Me Events was looking for short texts and a German translation for a flyer of ZEP. Zep is a new part of my hometown (Middelburg) where you can easily spend a day shopping or visiting attractions.

Everything you can do in ZEP had to find its way into the flyer so the texts had to be ultra short. And the translation too, of course. Meet Me Events was pleased with the texts I delivered and I am equally pleased with the design they came up with for the flyer. Colour and clarity ensure thaty all info is easy to find.
