One of the things we spoke about with the Comet Creative team was keeping size in mind when brainstorming and beginning to put that concept into a sketch. Below, I've posted the actual specs. sheet from the Design Ignites Change website. I've put that into a couple of other formats so that you may see how it breaks down, as well as the size we will be working at once we move on to making these concepts a reality....
If the final billboard will be 14' X 48' (thats 14 feet by 48 feet), that roughly breaks down to the proportion
1 foot by 3.43 feet... and if we look at that in inches, we've got 12 inches by 41.16 inches. When setting up the document in either program, the size in inches will be what you are using. If you haven't been using a flash drive up to this point, you are definitely going to want to use one for this part.
Here is a collection of links I have compiled for you to browse through... they exhibit the good, the bad and the ugly. Now, a majority of them really aren't designs that we will be able to pull of with this project, but if you take that "out of the box" mentality, and couple it with a strong and clear concept, you really might come up with something unexpected and unique.
Good vs. bad design… some examples of each
Really creative, lots of elements we really won’t be able to pull off with this assignment…
Again, some really creative examples.. should help you recognize some out-of-the box approaches
Good vs. bad… some more reading as well, helping to put things in perspective
Bad billboard design, and explanations as to why… as if you couldn’t already tell.
Here is the list of words that we came up with during our first exercise... remember, these words do not all describe possible themes to explore for this project. The exercise was intended to get you thinking about what those words triggered in your experience. I have included all of the words you came up with in order to show you the relevance to everyone in both classes. We still are maintaining the theme of TOLERANCE...
