Description (last modified by duffy) (diff)

While at FUDcon Berlin I took a lot of photos of the various signage at the event. I think it would be cool for the design team to put together a set of templates for FUDcon and FAD events that anybody could open up in Inkscape or OO.o to modify for their event. Stuff like:

  • pick up tshirts here!
  • wireless access point name and login info
  • directional signage
  • etc. etc.

Your mission, should you choose to accept this ticket:

1) Create templates for the following FUDcon signage in Inkscape - they should be in SVG format:

a) 'T-shirt pickup is here.' Might be nice to have smaller signs for each T-shirt size as well.

b) Map / directions template (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3662569891/in/set-72157620486080147/)

c) Wireless connection info, with fields for the access point name and username and password, or other instructions (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3663325510/in/set-72157620486080147/)

d) Sign that can have an arrow drawn on it to help direct folks (might want to say something like, 'FUDcon this way!' and have the date in much smaller letters and grey in a lower corner so people know it's safe to throw away after the event (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3662521537/in/set-72157620486080147/)

e) Goodies this way sign! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3662520179/in/set-72157620486080147/)

f) Signs or banner to help organize the barcamp schedule layout (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3662597971/in/set-72157620486080147/) Might want a template for 'Room:' (far left column of papers in the photo) and a template for 'Time slot' (top row of papers in the photo) and a banner to go over top, 'FUDcon schedule of events' or something like that.

g) An openoffice.org slide template or just a high-res (maybe 1600x1200) image that can be updated with the location and date for FUDcon, to be left up on the projector at the beginning of the day and inbetween sessions. (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3662583485/in/set-72157620486080147/ another example http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/2594784538/in/set-72157605799609636/)

h) some sign or banner template for the registration table (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/2589481619/in/set-72157605799609636/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/2590318890/in/set-72157605799609636/ )

i) a template for name badges (you may have to look up what the common size is for these, i don't know waht it is) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mairin/3182717180/in/set-72157612312076471/

When you design these graphics and templates note the general look / feel / style of FUDcon. We want to keep the existing logo and colors since we do have some material that's already re-used at events. You'll want to use the MgOpen? Modata font (do not use the bold version, only regular - if you need bold add an outer stroke in inkscape) Our session signs are something we've had in place since 2008 and we can save money by keeping them in play:




You will find a lot of assets here which I am sure will prove useful, including the source for the signage in the photos above:
