Just a minor update, I confirmed that A0 is also standard with poster at our institute. And also that we haven't a standardized workflow/company for printing, so I would say we can let Jan take care of it.
I also updated the OpenAtlas poster draft accordingly.

Hi everyone,
I created three "wireframe" layouts for you to consider. Everything is a placeholder and not a design element. I only thought about how to organize the content of the posters to good effect and let the features take the spot light. Please have a look and discuss or add thoughts if you see fit.

Page 1: Works best with only 4 features or feature groups. The logo is center stage with the features grouped around in no apparent order. Each feature stands on it's own and "feeds" OpenAtlas in the middle.
Page 2: The features are organized like a simple list, one below the other. That can also work in two columns but may look too crowded, depending on the amount of text. Some thought needs to go into ranking the features if you don't want to use the sequence in the wiki.
Page 3: To "lighten up" the poster, we can also go an even more visually structured route. This can look a little like an infographic but needs a bit of structuring because the features are perceived even more sequentially. That automatically creates a narrative hierarchy and you may not want that.

I am looking forward to feedback and creating the final piece when I return to work in a week!

Since we cannot display our features as sequence, I also vote for page 1. I think, if we have more than four features to present, maybe we can add sections.

Actions #6

I just updated the core features draft and kindly ask again all team members to add there which features and how we want to present them on the OpenAtlas poster, see OpenAtlas poster.
It would be difficult for Jan to continue if he doesn't know the content.
Also thanks a lot Jan for the cool first poster draft!

Thanks a lot for the draft Jan! I slightly prefere page 3 but as Bernhard pointed out we cannot structure our features as sequence. Therefore I vote for page 1 as well.
Would it be possible to have fewer Colors in the feature section for page 1 (e.g. one green and white) as backgrounds? As it is right now I think there's too many different colors which might be distracting if they occupy such a large area. Maybe something along the lines of the file I've attached.

I incorporated all the changes and corrections we discussed yesterday in this new version of the poster. It's in A3 right now, so you can print it out on your office printer. The final version to send to the convention will be prepared according to the specifications (thanks @Alexander Watzinger)!

I appreciate feedback and will prepare the final file in A0 after a final approval!

Thanks a lot Jan, this really looks great!
I only have one small suggestion about the top heading: maybe "OpenAtlas" in a (darker?) green and "A Database System for the Humanities and Beyond" a little less "big" e.g. not in bold but not sure how this will look like.
I also put the suggestion to the OpenAtlas poster draft (at the top) and would ask others to do the same (add suggestions here and in the draft). I would say we take time till next Tuesday, 20. June (the sooner the better so that we may can even see/discuss the changes before) and talk Wednesday about first prints.

It looks really cool, thanks a lot!

Actions #11

I edited the headline section and "unbolded" the second line. I would suggest to have first and second line in the same color to glue them together visually. In the last pdf it's quite clear that the headline has two parts: title (everything in black) and subline (green). That still works when two different font weights are used but the more attributes are changed, the harder it will become to quickly read it.

But let me know if you want to to change it!

Thanks Jan, it looks good and I will stop interfering with my unqualified suggestions :)
Like already mentioned, we will wait for additional input till Tuesday and than go into printing mode.

Again thanks a lot to Jan for the impressive work. After we received no additional feedback I would say we go into print.
@ @Jan Belik - can you please upload a PDF that we can use for printing at e.g. a copy shop in the files section:
We also would need a so called "A0 portrait format, as a PDF/A" version for the DH 2023 in case it is different to the "default" one for any reason (I'm not that familiar with printing).

Updated by Jan Belik about 1 year ago

Thanks everybody for providing all materials and copywriting very quickly and for all your timely and constructive feedback! The printable files are now ready for download as PDF/A - one version with, and one version without printer's cut marks. I've seen printers ask for one or the other, depending on their equipment, and so the people in Graz can chose the appropriate file.

As always a pleasure to work with you!
