MozCamp Banner

Hey there: We (me, Gen, William) thought it would look nice to add additional colors to the bottom of the MozCamp poster. The rationale is that we're printing several roll-up posters and one large banner (6x4') per Camp -- and wanted to have some variety for the roll-up posters, but keep the red background for the large banner.

The request is to add one color from the top of the poster graphic to background of the bottom of the  graphic (behind the dino head), creating 4 additional poster graphics (five in total).

Attached is the current MozCamp poster graphic.

Can this be turned around by COB Wednesday, 10/26? We're going to print this week.

assigning to Lee for now since he has the files and it can be a quick fix.  Otherwise, we can have someone else knock this out.  the design rocks btw.
Comment 2 Sean Martell 2011-10-24 08:28:46 PDT
I have color variants saved out. what are the exact dimensions needed for the banners?
Comment 3 Tara (musingt) 2011-10-24 08:30:04 PDT
perfecto :)
Comment 4 Jason Haas 2011-10-25 01:52:14 PDT
Thanks, Sean.

We'd like to render the bottoms of the posters in the set 5 colors (blue, red, green, orange, purple); however, the bottom color for the large banner will stay red.

We'd like to use the larger version of the banner graphic as a back drop for the main speaker stage. Let's set the height to 96" (8 feet) with a complimentary width. Not sure when we'll be able to know exact dimensions. Can you proceed with rescaling the image without this feedback?
Comment 5 Sean Martell 2011-10-25 08:22:17 PDT
I'd need to know exact dimensions for the smaller banners and larger banner to finalize the artwork. Perhaps check with the printer for exact dimensions?

Dimensions for MozCamp Roll-up Poster

Hi, Sean -- Here's the spec for the roll-up poster. Any way we can turn-around by noon 11/28? The planner needs to put the order in this weekend (Berlin time).

Dimensions for MozCamp Stage Banner

Here's the spec for the stage banner. Any way we can turn-around by noon 11/28? The planner needs to put the order in this weekend (Berlin time). The bottom of the banner will stay red.
Comment 8 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 07:59:24 PDT
Yep! working on them now.
Comment 9 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 08:01:51 PDT
So the large banner - they give the dimensions for the space, but will it be printed in strips?  What is the largest dimension we can use that they can actually print?
Comment 10 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 09:16:17 PDT  <-- 5 banners for back wall.  look good?
Comment 11 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 09:30:29 PDT  <--- color variants
Comment 12 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 09:31:09 PDT
zipping .ai files if all good. 

Is Illustrator CS5 version ok for print house?
Comment 13 Tara (musingt) 2011-10-28 10:32:26 PDT
Jason?  can you please respond so we can close this out?  Thanks
Comment 14 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 11:10:29 PDT
I've looked at my work, thought it over, and approved it. :)

Files in zip here - 5 color banners and 5 files for the 5-part mural.

Enjoy! :)
Comment 15 Tara (musingt) 2011-10-28 11:12:46 PDT
Thanks Sean!  Jason, since (time zones considered) we're running out of time for feedback... Sean went ahead and posted the final art files.  Hope this works.  I'm closing the bug.
Comment 16 Jason Haas 2011-10-28 11:55:36 PDT
Thanks, Sean/Tara -- sorry for the delay.

The large banner (red bottom) is meant to be printed on one 3x1.5m panel.

The art for the varied floor posters is spot-on!

It was recently decided we'd like to create wall posters (3'h x 2'w) as well -- to decorate the walls and, afterwards, people could take them home.

I'll send the planner the art for the floor posters.

Re-opening to address the request for large banner and wall poster.
Comment 17 Jason Haas 2011-10-28 11:59:00 PDT
Forgot to mention that we will have to ask the planner for more time given the recent decision about the wall posters. 

Can we turn-around the art for the above-mentioned wall posters and banner by 9am PDT Monday?
Comment 18 Sean Martell 2011-10-28 12:16:46 PDT
Do we need to do the large banner as you've stated, or can we do the 5 panel one I designed? I'd like the latter if possible. bigger and a more interesting visual.

As for the other posters, I'll try sure.
Comment 19 John Slater 2011-10-28 12:23:45 PDT
+1 for the five panel option. I really liked that.
Comment 20 Jason Haas 2011-10-28 15:33:22 PDT
Lee had to talk me through Sean's concept -- I was taking the mock-up from the vendor too literal :-? 

The five panel solution is wunderbar, Sean -- we'll go with that!
Comment 21 Lee Tom 2011-10-28 15:37:41 PDT
Post-it and Sharpie - to the rescue!
Comment 22 Jason Haas 2011-10-28 19:34:53 PDT
We have everything we need as it were. Thanks for the hustle + awesomeness!
