This is my third design assignment and is assignment that had to be 4 stars or more. The reason why I chose this assignment other than it being 4+ stars is because I thought it would be fun to take characters from one of the cartoons that I used to watch all the time when I was little and use them to advertise a product. I was able to think of multiple ideas for this assignment, but I ended up choosing to use characters form one of my favorite cartoons when I was little, Rugrats.
I was able to make a Huggies ad using Tommy Pickles and Chuckie Finster. I thought they would be perfect for a diaper ad because they are very popular babies/toddlers that wear diapers. A lot of kids have grown up watching them on tv so when parents would see the cartoon character on the advertisement they would want to buy them for their kids because of the use of their child’s favorite cartoon characters. The kids look up to the cartoon characters and would love to wear the diapers when the see that Tommy and Chuckie are on the cover. Also, it is a Huggies little movers ad so why not use characters that wear diapers that are always going on adventures? I also Capitalized the word all to emphasize that the diapers are made for all young children.
