FUDcon signage & Fedora collateral

FUDcon Signage

We needed some signage for FUDcon pretty quickly so I’ve been working on that. Here’s what I came up with:

Links to the source files and printer-ready graphics are here, as well as sort of a ‘lessons-learned’ writeup so hopefully the next time we do designs like this we’ll be a bit the wiser. 🙂

I’m also going to do a FUDpub sign design; I’m thinking we can get those printed out on normal-sized paper closer to the time of the event.

Fedora Collateral

I’ve been hearing from a lot of you about the Fedora general-purpose posters. They are only in SVG format on the wiki right now, and it’s really hard to work with these files when trying to go to the printers. I definitely hear you on this and I’m going to try to go back soon and get these posters done up in printer-ready format so you can just grab and go to the printers and be all set without having to poke around in the file. One question I have for you, though, is what sizes would these posters be useful in? I’m thinking of maybe having printer-ready files available for:

– A4
– Letter
– Poster – 24″ x 36″ (standard poster size in the US)
– ??

What poster sizes are common in your country/region? For the smaller signs, is either A4 or Letter sufficient?

Thanks 🙂

  1. You’d know what would be cool?

    A MAP! A clickable MAP! So you could click on your country/region and get a listing of event materials in the languages and formats that make the most sense.

  2. Having them in printer ready format would be great! It would help newer Fedora Ambassadors (and even some of us seasoned ones) when it comes time to get materials made locally for an event.

    I think regular poster sized (24″x36″) is good and for the smaller ones I think A4-ish is sufficient or maybe something in the A3-ish (11″x16″) size.
