German Retractable Banner
I’ve started designing a big retractable banner for the German Department. Draft 1 an ideal mockup done at a proportionally smaller size but now I’m running into some issues making the full size version.
Mainly, I’m not totally comfortable building large files at a high DPI. One issue is font size – the printing company told me 10pt will be legible, but in Draft 2 the body copy is already 46pt and seems very small. I still am not sure if that is a file size or DPI issue (I think the former). I’ll just have to eyeball what looks proportional.
Another issue is the provided images are small – the images at the bottom of Draft 2 are sized about 6-7″, but since the banner is 33″ wide, they’re too small for this design. I may need to do a collage, which I fear would look chaotic with all the grainy black and white photography. I’m waiting for some new photos from our client.
Update as of 12/10
Final design incorporating client feedback. They sent over new photos and we removed the white headers/footers because they drew too much attention.
