Default design-team Digest, Vol 35, Issue 15

The templates for flyers/posters ready to slightly modify and print is a nice idea.

I don't know if fedora already have this kind of asset, but I consider that would be useful for both.

I could help on that... if you allow me =).

Hi folks,



I think it would be good if we could make it easier for ambassadors to

order swag. Right now, our assets are kind of all over the place. I put

together a first stab at trying to organize some designs we've used

before:



https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Useruffy/brandstuff



Do you see any designs that are missing that we should have here? Do you

have any ideas for new designs we could make that would be useful to

ambassadors? Let's brainstorm and see what else might be useful?



Some points:



- These are for materials ambassadors order to be printed. Let's not

worry about graphics or stuff you can print on a home printer, because I

don't think those are as much as a problem for ambassadors.



- Since they are for print, we'll need to make CMYK, embedded font /

fonts-to-paths, print-ready PDFs available for the ambassadors to grab

and send off to their vendors. (Common problems we've had with designs

in the past is RGB instead of CMYK colors, and incorrect or old fonts)



- Each design might have several different print files. For example, A-2

has been printed on both Fedora pens and Fedora lanyards, and I think

even tablecloths. Since different swag are different sizes, we'll need

different print-ready artwork files - one per application - even if the

design is basically the same.



- Any designs that use MgModata (besides the FUDcon logotype) should use

Comfortaa now, I updated the ones I could.



I'm going to send the ambassadors a similar email to see if what is here

so far works and to see if there is anything else they think they might

need. Maybe a blog post too



Thanks,

~m

+487, excellent excellent idea.



A few additional thoughts:



* Some info on why RGB is different vs. CMYK, and how to talk to your

vendor about this to verify what they are using without feeling overwhelmed.



* Revisit the tri-fold flyers or any other flyers that ambassadors give

out, see if we can work with marketing to make them more up-to-date, or

at least have a simple, nice template for people to use, and make sure

that we have them sized for printing in various parts of the world,

since not everyone uses the same type of paper.



Will keep thinking on this... I'm sure I may have other ideas.



Thanks for tackling this, Mo!

In summary, RGB (Red Green Blue combinated) is an addictive colour

model of the light on which a combination of RGB makes white displayed

on screen from TV to your average cellphone while CMYK (Cyan Magenta

Yellow Key - in black -) is a subtractive colour model on which the

combination is black found on materials like ink and paint. Hope that

helps.
