Rumbirds vertical banner / Photoshop / ~20 hours
One of the things I really wanted to have for ConnectiCon this year is a large banner to catch people’s eyes. I went with Half Price Banner, which was a service recommended to me last year at the same convention. Full circle!
My aim for the banner was to create something that wouldn’t look outdated so quickly. Linework was out of the question because my style is constantly evolving, so I took a more design-based approach. One of my goals this year is to be more comfortable with color, and I think I’m finally getting the hang of it with this color-blocking method. The end result is something a little more illustrative than I was shooting for (was originally planning for flat colors and textures – more “book cover”, less “movie poster”) but I think I’m pretty happy with it. It’s a good start, anyway.
The finished file was about 4GB and the actual banner itself will measure 80″ high. Crazy! Can’t wait to see how it looks in person.
