Chris does great work with an equally great attitude! I'm not very easy to please, as she can verify. I'm picky about little things I think should look a certain way. With each e-mail I sent with various changes, she happily complied and saw the project through to completion. The final artwork looks great! Thanks, Chris!
How Mikesnavely started their signage journey

What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a not-for-profit ministry. Our main activities are public speaking (seminars) on origins related issues, and the production of DVDs that communicate the same message.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a 5ft. X 3ft. banner to be used in trade shows as a backdrop for our booth display. We have medium grey curtains that we use as our main backdrop. So, we wanted the edges of our banner to be a similar grey, but then interrupted by plant life or some images from nature, with our logo in the middle over black. I have attached a rough idea that I drew in Publisher as a start. As you can see, I didn't cover all of the black edges. I have no way of adding actual photo images with the see-through background to make it realisitc-looking. I have in mind plants appearing as though from WITHIN the banner and flowing toward the edge, rather than FROM the edge of the banner. I hope this makes sense. In my image, there is a chameleon. It's not necessary - it's just an idea although I like chameleons and have bought that image already.
I've also attached our actual logo. But, I like the border around the word "Imperative".
This must be eye-catching to people passing by our booth. We don't want it looking cartoon-ey. We need a bright, cheerfukl design with photo images that create a jungle or safari-like image.
