FOOTHILLS FANTASY FOR FAMILIES

The key amenity: a high view of the lights of a growing city.
A new section of prestigous foothill property opens, appealing to aspiring professionals and their dreams of family and the good life. Proximity to downtown jobs adds a critical practical consideration.


Joe Gold synthesized the strategy of these high-end homes (consider the typical Tucson home was $40,000 at the time), featuring the expansive property size and views of city lights; he wrote the headlines and copy, directed the photo shoot and mechanicals, and made the media buy. Photographer Don Winston came up with superimposing the models on a decorative sky. Chip Travers Designs assembled the final full-page ad for the back page of Sunday home section in the Arizona Daily Star.
