These look good! I like the black and white one because the main purpose of the ad is to focus on the 3 companies so the orbs being the only objects in color makes them stand out even more. I also like how the positions in the photograph reflect the position of the orbs in the logo. Also, have you tried just leaving the orbs as the only thing in color instead of the ties as well?
Thanks! I agree, I like the b/w better as well! I really dislike the middle AD because its slightly blurry and doesn't match well. I'll have to think of something else for the 2nd ad. I will try the ties in b/w thanks :)
i really love the black and white one too. these look really professional.
