Club Banner?

Post by airborne.s2000 on Sun Mar 17, 2013 12:24 pm

I will keep throwing out ideas until people shout me down.

I think we should have a vinyl banner made that we can hang at events where the club has a presence (SIS, Bike Rodeo, Gasbock, ODR MTB Race Series, etc.) Initial research shows about $80 to have a single banner made that is suitable for outdoor use. I am trying to make the banner as much like the page banner as possible, while adding out website, and a QR code that points to our website.

Any thoughts? Like it, hate it, desired changes? Should we add "Wer rastet, der rostet"?

This is a sample, I still need the appropriate fonts from eurotrash (I will also ensure the QR code is not cut off in the final draft):

Looks pretty good. Would be col cool to add the other graphics from the forum banner. Would you put the QR code on a large banner??

To what other graphics do you refer? I have the pig, the Rhineland-Pfalz and Kaiserslautern coat of arms.

I think the QR code will look OK, and adds a useful feature to the banner. However, I am not married to any of it, except trying to keep the same feel as the forum.

What is the interest level? Several people seemed interested at our last meeting, but no one aside from velo-doc has commented on the look of the banner.

I think we should purchase one. I am going to confirm with Jonesy that the bank account is squared away this week. We will put it on the voting list for next month's meeting and make it so, if there is adequate support.

Cool banner!

I like the fonts on the webpage, rather than the ones on the banner you have up. Having "cycling" in italics and "KMC" in whatever bold font that is makes it more modern and appealing i think. Everything else is awesome.

I need eurotrash's help in getting the specific fonts used on the forum header, as I always intended to go that route. He has been pretty busy lately; haven't heard from him in a couple of weeks.

Concur. When's the next local road race? always good for intimidation factor.

I have the .psd documents on my SkyDrive. I'll have to access that from a non-gov't computer to give you a link.

I made some changes to the banner. Servimg won't host it for some reason. SO here is the link to my Google Drive file: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxV8o4fOEl5waWFfdkRfR3V3alU/edit?usp=sharing

Please comment!!

Looks good. If the image has accurate proportions, then I would make the space between the "KMC Cycling" lettering and other images smaller.

I will have to fiddle with the spacing. I based this on a 2' x 10' banner; maintaining that will mean increasing the size of the images and lettering to make the spaces smaller.
