  • 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?

                                I have exported from InDesign as well, but that's not the problem, some of the sites I was applying from ask for CV's less than 500KB, 2 MB would be fine if that were the case.

                                Why does it have to be converted to PDF from word? you can get much more reasonable PDF file sizes when exporting from inDesign. Most of those max file size limits are 2mb, you should be able create a...

                                It's really helpful to know you have been on both sides i.e applying as well as hiring, so I will stick to your advice about keeping it plain. Thanks.

                                It looks like it's supposed to be a spot glass coating on a matte card. No great way to simulate that in InDesign. Best way to make it happen is call the printer that is printing it and ask them, but...
