Pop up Banner design

Recommended Posts

Hey there guys,

 

Just back from my holidays and I've been given the chance to advertise my eejits at a local creative festival/event. They want a couple of pop up banners to form part of the background as people walk through from one area to the next.

 

So.... here's my first pop at my pop up banner. Putting it up here for comment, criticism and (another word beginning with c)

 

Whaddya think?!?

 

George

Love it, still can see this a cartoon. Something simple to start of with, maybe a 15 sec sketch.

Thanks. As a design, do you like it? Anything you think I can do to make it better....? (Man, I'm rubbish at self promotion)

 

I'm gonna make another one of a similar design with another creature featured in the middle. I'm still tweaking.

 

Cheers,

 

George

I think this looks great - really like the background colour and the way that it works well with your colourful creatures :) I also like the bevel/embossed frames around each character. How are you doing with that book? My son's 2 and a half now, so you've only got a few years before I intend to be buying it for us to read! :D

Thanks guys. I'll get crackin' on with the second one (once I finsh the real life job....booooo). Need to get these to the printers toot sweet.

 

Matt: The book is coming along nicely. Wrote another chapter whilst on holiday and am having a lot of fun doing it. Should be finished by the time your son is 7 or so!! It's hard work trying to squeeze in fart jokes (or should that be squeeze out).

My daughter read what I had recently written and had a big smile on her face. Which is a good sign. She also looked at me and asked what goes on in my head?! haha!

Wow! You've arrived! :D :D :D

 

Where can I download the app?

 

Animate those icons, NOW!

 

C word..? Hmm: Champagne, corker, celebrate. Oh yeah, congratulations.

 

Seriously, you've created a wonderful template. Just choose a different Eejit, with a different complementary background and don't forget to include the signage info on the poster: parking/food/toilets/first aid/way in/way out etc. This would look absolutely stunning as a feather flag...

 

 I think you know which Eejit would be the best for the first aid, hint hint. He's at the bottom of this post! ;)

Wow.... thanks man. It's nothing as major as you think. Just a local thing. A couple of bits of background dressing  that's all!

 

But you're right, it would look ace on a feather flag thingee. Using that design as the template, here is it's partner (I had to obviously use the tall eejits to fit the format):

Glad you liked it lad! Really impressed with the fact that the feather flags have tickled your fancy.

 

I've just found this site, that has templates for all flag sizes that are in vector formats. :D  :ph34r:  :lol:

They also have a Pantone swatch on their site.

 

That should keep you busy for a while...You'll need this one day2.jpg

I can help you with the fart jokes:

  • it's a gas!
  • it's a breeze!
  • here's one I made earlier!
  • Eejits:eject:emit!
  • new knickers please!
  • look, I am you farter (the German for father is vater! Pronounced varter.)
  • Cook, cook, cookability: that's the beauty of gas (Toasted clown, anyone?)

This is an offer, not to be sniffed atlaughing-dog-65307480315.gif

Hi Gary,

 

Thanks for the compliment. I may be able to draw creatures but I don't think I'm as good with the graphic design stuff. Nice to know it's gonna do what I intended.

 

Thanks,

 

George

My pop-up banners arrived today! They are freakin' awesome (if I do say so myself)!! Absolutely delighted with them!

 

Thanks to Affinity Designer for making it a breeze to create them. The output is awesome!  :D  :D  :D
