Design required for headstone of infant boy, Hudson Nicholas Parker, who was stillborn 2 weeks before due date with no apparent cause of death. Youngest of 4 children with 3 older sisters. Design required urgently for bronze plaque to be completed by Christmas day.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The design work required is to layout the text detailed on a 230mm x 185mm bronze plaque. The plaque is to have no colour or photographs on it. Around 10 lines of text is expected. The text for the plaque is supplied along with a small handprint and footprint image from Hudson that needs to be part of the design.
The plaque supplier has a number of fonts and images that are provided in the supporting material along with some example plaques.
The aim is to have the text and footprint graphics to be laid out in a manner that looks professional.
The design variables are the choice of font (templates listed by the plaque companies), the size of the font, selecting the elements to be capitalised and the general layout.
Two companies are available to manufacture the plaque. The websites of the two companies are listed below: http://www.arrowbronze.com.au/perso…se/emblems http://www.phoenixfoundry.com.au/
Other suppliers will be considered if the design requires it.
Design files to be provided in PDF, JPEG.
A copy of the file in EPS would also be appreciated.
