Design of a traditional large-format poster in two sizes and large-format printed banner.  I also produced vinyl mechanicals for the banner in case we went that route.  However I prefer to let the client do the talking here:

Hi Joe:

I just saw the materials you prepared for the John Cotton Throwdown in Chicago next month, and wanted to tell you how terrific they look.  I don’t know if you’ve been to the Chicago show before or not, but I’ve never seen anything there that looks half as professional.  I know Craig Cobine, the chief organizer of the show, was very impressed.  The poster and the banner both look great, and will make a very positive impression for the event!

Hello Matt: Just to let you know. I had the banners and posters made, they are simply beautiful. You have the best graphics at the show. I will have one banner mounted on the wall behind your table, and, I hope, another hung in the tent, I am not yet sure how, but I will work that out with hotel staff when the tent is erected. The posters will be displayed at various locations at various time like last year. Craig

Thank you very much for the compliment Craig!  The great designer that helped us with this is fellow club member Joe Melberg.  We’re lucky to have a talented gang of folks to team up with.

Glad the graphics turned out great and thank you for producing them for us.  The Throwdown truly is a group effort and it is great to have the participation and shoulders to the wheel.  We could not do this by ourselves.

Now all we have to do is put on a show!  I feel like Mickey Rooney in Babes in Arms:
“We’ve gotta have a great show, with a million laughs… and color… and a lot of lights to make it sparkle. And songs – wonderful songs. And after we get the people in that hall, we’ve gotta start em in laughing right away. Oh, can’t you just see it… ?”
— Judy Garland, “Babes In Arms”, 1939.
Only our tent is gonna be full of smokey pipe men!


Wow!  With feedback like that, what could I possibly add!?
