Work Stuff: Big Brands Poster Design

This print project was for www.BargainBanners.com. Over the years, they have printed banners promoting quite a few national brands. The idea for a poster to show the diverse group of companies seemed natural.
The first task was gathering logo files. Most of them were possible to take from the original banner artwork, but a few needed to be picked up from www.BrandsOfTheWorld.com as vector files. Each logo is superimposed on a small “virtual banner”, which I created in Photoshop back in 2008 as part of the BargainBanners.com logo. The background contains a lovely US Map and “light steaks” courtesy of VectorStock.com. Everything was assembled in InDesign, and output to a PDF for the poster printing.
The finished piece is 4 feet wide by about 3 feet tall, and is now hanging in their banner workshop.

Work Stuff: Sales Folder (Print Project)

Fun Factoid: Everything in the photo is at half scale, even the tiny 1 inch tall business card.

This was a recent project I completed for our sales team at work. It will be a nicely printed folder filled with sales materials (brochures, price sheets, things like that).

In the end, we went with the version over white. This better matches the other series of collateral items I produced earlier this year (envelope, sales team business cards, a promotional coupon, and notesheet sized letterhead). Can’t wait to get them back from the printer next week!
