    Your client needs to get you the dimensions of the door. Without that, one can only guess.
    In Illustrator use whatever units you want. I use inches. Too much math otherwise.

    B, we pay illustrators to create maps for projects and end up paying them a royalty based fee. The number of copies are limited by contract and they are free to license the map art for others. I don't...

    Welcome to GDF wikster

    Your image is not showing up. What works best for me is to upload an image to a photo hosting site like photobucket. Then use the IMG tag/link and paste that directly...

  • i had an idea... but can we do it?

    i've been on a few other forums and they have kinda long running collaborative projects on the go... like eatpoo and their tarot cards (tarot project)

    ...well after reading the linotype thread in news, i reckon we should all work together to make a monopoly board! What do you think?

    You choose the name of the place (like 'Helvetica Gardens' - cheers Balou) and the design for the block (so it won't look like the normal board with the flat two colour squares) and then gradually we piece together a whole design orientated monopoly board...

    Post up the images here and note which square from the real board it is replacing... I'll collate and stick them together and eventually we'll have our own GDF-opoly!!?!?!?! What do you think? You could even design some new playing pieces (to replace the iron and top hat etc)

    c'mon guys lets do it, it'll be fun!

      yeahhhh lets do it....

      i reckon the design of each 'street' should be at a ratio of 1 unit wide by 2 units tall... and obviously each corner square being 2 by 2...

      here's a link to a pic of a board so you know which streets/features to replace...

                          A fish-shaped pancake perhaps?
