ping @cecilia_ulfsdotter and @hugi if you are kinda ok with those would be nice to add some of this to the website + social media. See you Monday :slight_smile:

Love it!

Would increase the contrast for legibility, and make sure that linked text is the same color as everything else. You can make the “yellow” color block much brighter (or consider having it completely black or white).

@Alex.Colard piece looks sick!

thanks for the feedback. will update tomorrow :slight_smile:

Great work!! So excited to see all of this.

Thank you

And @MariaEuler why does it says GROSS on the yellow container, not very attractive, maybe we can photoshop it into Cross

And my name has one L :blush:

In my description: “experience those that are dormant within ourselves”

Will adjust text and fix the name.

Fantastic! If you want I can do the photoshop, send me an email with the picture it will take 2sec

@jonasjohansson I also think the yellow should be more present / the gross text is confusing with the text above, it’s too complicated text on text,

when it comes to graphic design I believe understanding the message is number one, style comes second.

I vote to remove the under text totally. Anybody seconds my vote? I will take a picture like this one today and email it to you (better background I believe) @MariaEuler

I find the door cooler, but you are right about the writing. Found a good quality picture of the other door which is free of writing and will just flip it :).

i sent you an email with this pic, the black text will be more visible since there is no black in that picture

straight lines @MariaEuler

with blur @MariaEuler

used this for the overview and the flipped other door for the flyer. will upload in a few min

This is standard for containers and IMO adds to the container identity of the gallery (being inside a container…). It has do with “gross weight” and not “gross” as in “disgusting”. Art isn’t necessarily always attractive, unlike advertising.

I don’t really remember what the poster looked like originally but my taste/preference would have been to keep the deeper, rusty colors of what the wall actually looks like (for the main background) and then remove the yellow container background from the individual text boxes instead to make those stand out and be more legible. I think the current compromise of having a very bright and washed out container wall as background together with slightly darker yellow text boxes is a bit of a lose-lose.

Just my two cents and for future reference (or whatever), nothing I suggest changing now. :slight_smile:

The poster on the top is more of a byproduct of the flyers at this point and did not get.much love by itself. (The version before was just the one with the only textboxes that is still below as “overview”. Could make one of those the main header, but neiter look that good as a pick up by the website either.) Will be updated at some point.

For now: Better done than perfect :slight_smile:

Also: will hide most of the comments here once we start pushing out on social media to clean it up a bit :slight_smile:

The old colour here. Removing the text mainly for legebility.
