I was thinking that since it was a LO poster for a LO table "fest", it 
would be nice if the file used to create the poster would be shared.

I have no trouble creating a poster for things I am dealing with, but 
there are some North American events coming soon, with April 28-29 being 
the LinuxFest Northwest 2012.  I bet they could use as many marketing 
poster ideas as we can provide them.

I know that locally the 6 foot by 30 inch "LibreOffice" banner cost 
about $75, and the one shown in the linked photo would be about half 
that [hopefully].

I know the price of that 6 foot banner since I am working on a design 
for a local organization and we were quoted that if we provide the PDF file.

It would be nice to share the files [in standard formats] so every 
region that has these shows where LO could get a booth/table, can have 
similar materials, posters, banners, etc., for their use.

I have asked on the website list about how to get a 3.4.5 DVD label 
design shown there.  I think if the designers of the labels, brochures, 
fliers, posters, banners, and other marketing items shared their 
creations, we would have a large marketing resource.

I would really like to see a tri-fold brochure, or flier, that was 
geared towards the school and university students.  Get them while they 
are young.  Get schools to look at LO as an alternative to buying MSO 
for all their systems.  Give the parents an option instead of buying MSO 
for their kid's laptops when they send them on to the colleges and 

Most schools, locally, are switching off MSO - and onto Google Docs
(Apps really).

The more marketing materials we have to access locally, the better we 
can be.

Yes - only speaking for myself, I've been falling down on that.

Yes Drew,
I most likely could make a version of the poster in the photo, if I 
could read the text and use some translation package to see what it 
saids, but it would be better to just download it from our marketing pages.

I agree.

Well, I sent a translation along - and I plan to draft a poster
also...will send email when that is on the wiki.

Likely not - well, of course there could be, but likely not that you
will ever get your hands on.

If you really like though, it could be reproduced in English and using
FOSS tools, in an standard format, and shared with the full community.

Shall we?


I was thinking that it looks great, and would be nice to have something
like this for the English "fests" coming up this year.

Having it in English, instead of needing to take the SVG file and
editing it, would be helpful.

We need as many marketing posters and "stuff" as possible for the North
American shows ands fests.
