View Full Version : Need some advice on a banner
19th of December 2008 (Fri), 23:45
My wife decided to buy me some banners for christmas to use at bridal shows and such.
I spent years working in graphic design and for some reason I can't put this together.
Here is my first mock up.
The actual dimensions are 36" x 72"
Any critiques are welcome and if anyone wanted to take the banner and draw on it to be more detailed feel free.
just a note:
romantic Photojournalism is trademarked.

The saturated white strip that is highlighting her left eye is not good IMHO. Also it slices her face after the eye which looks odd.
I think if you are looking for bridal type work that you might want a more 'bride' looking shot, this does not really scream out bridal to me.
The other weird overlayed pieces in her hair are also odd. Especially the angled piece that comes to a point at the top of her forehead at the right side of her face. Did you know that you have 'ojo' meaning eye in Spanish down the left side of your banner as well. I see what you are trying to do with the photojournalism wording, but if this was my banner it would be back to the old drawing board.
Sorry for the seemingly harsh criticism. But once its printed its too late. :)

This took me a bout an hour of messing around and moving stuff and picking fonts to get to the point where I needed outside advice.
I have a second banner which is very clearly wedding pictures and pictures from weddings an so on.
I was looking to do this banner slightly more artistic, I want it to highlight a womans face so brides to be will go wow that portrait looks great so I'm not scared to let him get closeups of me.
I'll get back to it
