I’ve been working on a 36×90 banner for Stout Coffee at OSU for a couple weeks off and on. It’s a large banner to fill up a ridiculously blank green wall. The lame part about the place is that the back half looks very late 90s youth group lounge and the front half has a very rustic wood and aluminum Starbucks feel. The green wall is in the back, but I felt it still needed to not totally ignore the newer, cooler front half.
Here are a few versions I’ve gone through. The first one is the one in the lead with my boss and the one that goes best with the colors in the shop. I like the 3rd one because my inspiration for the effects was my favorite album art of all time: Rilo Kiley – Take-offs and Landings. I really just did that one for fun.
