This is a rough draft, but has a more activist look

Interesting, something like that. Also, the lower banner has the logos far too small to make out, and any minor printing errors will make the text hard or impossible to read. I do my best to keep my text a bit away from the margin of error, so none gets cut off.

2017-11-27 18:24:03 UTC  

Good points.

2017-11-27 18:24:22 UTC  

if any of these have potential, I'll clean them up for printing (color, margins, font)

2017-11-27 18:25:32 UTC  

I didnt really intend on tiny logos being clear, just comes off as a classy/sophisticated seperator.

*starts printing*

2017-11-27 18:26:28 UTC  

It does, I like the style, but it can be even better if it's functional also.

2017-11-27 18:26:35 UTC  

I pinned the two posterity designs.

2017-11-27 18:27:36 UTC  

Let me know if any of these you want me to clean up and make final versions of.

2017-11-27 18:28:36 UTC  

What we need is someone who's better than myself at makig figure designs so we can have original stuff commissioned.

2017-11-27 18:28:41 UTC  

I'm a text and logos guy.

2017-11-27 18:29:24 UTC  

yea...

2017-11-27 18:29:30 UTC  

I am not good at human figure

2017-11-27 18:30:26 UTC  

might be able to find an artist for hire to do some simple/rough sketches of certain poses

2017-11-27 18:30:42 UTC  

might be cheap, especially if like an art student on instagram or something

2017-11-27 18:32:25 UTC  

Nah, forget hiring anyone, we recruit our own talent.

2017-11-27 18:34:29 UTC  

Humans are tough to illustrate. I tried sketching the other day for something similar to what we're going for but it still falls short

2017-11-27 18:34:37 UTC  

I can do humans with charcoal

2017-11-27 18:34:40 UTC  

just need a photo

2017-11-27 18:34:45 UTC  

can't just pull it out of my head

2017-11-27 18:35:23 UTC  

Something more chiseled and abstract might work best.

2017-11-27 18:35:48 UTC  

well I can turn charcoal into vector and it will look modern and chiselled

2017-11-27 18:41:57 UTC  

this is an example, it's kind of rough because of the clouds and water, but a figure would be more definitive

The original drawing has to be pretty high contrast for vectorizing to work well. Ideally, you'll draw it first in black and white.

2017-11-27 18:43:12 UTC  

I'd be willing to try if any goys were feeling photogenic

2017-11-27 18:43:33 UTC  

that or up the levels/contrast hard afterward

2017-11-27 18:43:39 UTC  

Who's up for a dox?

2017-11-27 18:43:41 UTC  

j/k

2017-11-27 18:43:46 UTC  

can be wearing mask

2017-11-27 18:44:00 UTC  

or I can put a default face on

2017-11-27 20:44:40 UTC  

I have some camera equipment if someone needed portraits in the DFW area for future media.

2017-11-27 21:33:23 UTC  

For the this is our home maybe put in a picture of the Oregon trail

2017-11-27 21:33:35 UTC  

Something iconic of American sturggle

2017-11-27 21:33:53 UTC  

Maybe Irish workers on steel beams in nyc

2017-11-27 21:41:54 UTC  

Also on number three maybe make there a group of three or 5 but sized down so the front man looks imposing or like a leader

This is a template for printing stickers on mailing label paper, at home. Color is preferred, B&W is "allowed." Use the Avery 8163, 2"X4" stickers. 10 per sheet. It's really that easy. Cut the stickers into individual ones. The nice thing about these is that you can print them at home, they cost roughly 20 cents per sticker (ink and blanks), and they are easier to post stealthily and quickly in "denied territory."
