Unit 7: assignment – ad campaign project | MK380 | Park University


The Core Assessment for MK 380 is the development of an advertising campaign for a product or service of the student’s choice. The project involves research and analysis or the target market and the creation of multiple deliverables and mediums. 

Each student will work as if they were in an advertising agency/company on a “live case” of their choice. The student will need to gather information to assist with the creation of an ad campaign. There are two parts to this assignment: a paper and sample ads for online presentation.


Consider yourself to be an advertising agency and this paper a pitch to win a new business from a prospective client. You will discuss the feasibility of the given target market, campaign objectives, and your resulting ad campaign with media plan and evaluation metrics.

You should justify your campaign as one which appeals to your target market and effectively meets the campaign objectives. You must also justify your media choices. The paper should provide much more detail about the campaign than you will be able to fit into your project presentation. Your grade will be based on your ability to communicate that you have learned the course material and can effectively apply the appropriate concepts and information to a real world situation.

He papers should be double-spaced with 10 or 12 point font and one-inch margins. There is no page limit but use your words effectively. The paper for this assignment is a document that is suitable for presentation to a client.
