Default Fwd: Release Party Flyers

Hi Jeff,


From: Jeffrey Tadlock <linux@elfshadow.net>

Subject: Release Party Flyers
To: "Discussions about the artwork included with Fedora, including
icons, themes, and wallpapers." <fedora-art-list@redhat.com>

Hello Art Team,

FAmSCo is trying to get Ambassadors to host release parties during the
first week or so of the Fedora 9 release in their area. Francesco
announced the idea to the Ambassadors list here:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-ambassadors-list/2008-March/msg00145.html

As part of this, I would like to make it even easier for Ambassadors
by having some flyers they can download off the wiki to hang up in
their area announcing their local release party (and, uh, who am I
kidding - I need some flyers for the release party we are planning
here in Central Ohio...).

I am thinking just a one sheet flyer that we can print up and hang on
University bulletin boards, coffee shop hangouts, computer stores,
etc. Now, the dates will most likely vary between area for their
release party date - so in order to be most useful it would be handy
for the average non-art person to be able to modify the date, time,
location and a little area for any special notes.

Is this something someone could help me out on?


What copy do you want for the poster? What do you want it to say? If you
can provide the text, e.g.:


Come Celebrate Fedora 10's release!
CDs and DVDs available, swag available, blah balh balh

Date:
Time:
Location:
Special Notes:


(I'm sure you could come up with something better for the headline and
byline?)

Thanks Máirín! Let me run some ideas by FAmSCo and then I will post
back here with more info for the text.

Is it possible to have a text box area where an Ambassador could open
the flyer and modify the date, time, location and notes section
themselves? My hope is to provide ambassadors with a general release
party flyer that they can add in their own date, time and location.
That will allow us to use this flyer as a basis for all of the Release
Parties we hope to see thrown shortly after the launch of Fedora 9.

Thanks again!

~Jeffrey

I would guess the simplest way to do this is to keep the date / time /
location fields blank, let the ambassadors fill this out on a printout
using a magic marker and then make xerox copies?

In interests of keeping the flyer towards the generic side and useful
for a large number of people (and my lack marketing lingo ), how
about something that says:

Fedora 9 # in big, eye catching text
Release Party # in slightly smaller text

Then a Fedora graphic in the middle of the sheet and allow room at the
bottom of the text for someone to tweak the design with their
customized local info.

Well, it doesn't have to be that simple. Here is what I have in mind,
the heading text and graphic above and then towards the bottom a spot
fill in the local information of date, time, location, etc. I figure
most of these flyers will be on 8.5"x11" paper, so we can post a png
for printing in that size on the wiki. If people need a different
size, they can tweak it from the svg we also post. With the date,
time, location section blank an ambassador can load the png file into
The Gimp and add in their own text in the area we left. Do you think
this would work? We (i.e. I) can post directions on how to modify the
flyer with that information if you think it is at least doable.

Thanks for taking time to discuss this with me. I know you folks are
swamped with trying to get the theme finished up before the freeze.

Thanks,
Jeffrey
