Yesterday one of my bosses at the shop enlisted me to create a new poster for next years Ladies of the Lake sea kayak symposium. The theme for next year is the Oscars, and Bill provided me with the poster below and asked me to put a paddle in the Oscar’s hands and change all of the info to reflect our event’s sponsors, location, and dates. On the phone I said sure… not a problem. Then when I saw the poster he wanted me to cannibalize… let’s just say this is one of those easier said than done kind of moments. And you know what… I think it turned out pretty good. Last night I wasn’t feeling like tackling the 3d text, but I think that I came up with something that works just fine. I might take a moment and give it a go if I can find some time, but I’m happy with it as is.
Take a look at the original. This took me quite a bit of time to fix and cover up and just get a clean slate on which to put the text. I haven’t needed to do anything like this in a while and I have to say it was pretty fun. I do enjoy little challenges like this.
Let me know what you think.
