Group fun. :brow:

I'm no good at cut paste design photoshop crap. Would any of you be willing to help design the flyer for the West Coast Subaru Show? http://www.ultimates...ead.php?t=13558 (info)
Something colorful and cool looking enough to leave at local Subaru digs.

Maybe after we decide on one or two, some of you aways away from me and Ken can print batches and leave them in places you may think they'd draw people to the show. Especially those of you in OR and CA and ID.


Thanks in advance!

Yeah, i can help out. I was wondering if you guys had someone that was able to work with photoShop.

I'll review the info and see what I can come up with. Do you have anything already in mind Zap?

I had a good couple hours into one back when we had just gotten the fairgrounds reserved, photoshop crashed though, and I haven't done anything since. My issue was finding royalty free high resolution high quality photos of subes. Maybe tomorrow I will talk to some of the rally photographers, see if they will let me use some photos.

OK had some creative inspiration tonight and have this so far. It's more of a brainstorming, since we can't (legally) use any of the pictures. They are too low resolution to come out good on a printer anyway. Oh yeah, is it "West Coast Subaru Show 6" or "6th Annual West Coast Subaru Show?"

I have yet to put the details about the show in, so there's a lot of empty space.

Anyway, I need to get some old gen subes on there next... I am looking for some dramatic pics of our old gens that really show them off. I'm goin to bed for now though.

Ahh dammit why don't I go to bed at a normal time?!!? Anyway, I did a little bit more work on the poster. What do you guys think. I need some constructive criticism ;) IE: what needs to CHANGE and what needs to be added?

WOW!!!


That's awesome Jeff! I like yours too Brian, but the one Jeff did has the info needed. I can only think of a couple things to change.

Maybe move the beer garden down a little so it's not the first thing seen.
Also, add that the SCCA is throwing the RallyX.
If you can sneak in mine and Ken's email for contact info, I think it would be about perfect!


Brian, if you wanna add the same info he has to yours, it would work too. More than one kind of flyer is a cool idea in my book.

Thanks big time for the work you guys have put into it.

I just talked to the Boss. He says lose two of the rally cars. I suggested a justy or 360 and an SVX. I'll dig up the hi-res of the SVX asap.


Thanks

Nicky. Like you say, the web site is keeping you busy enough. This helps with distribution too.

Jeff, it looks great! I just think to appeal to all we should give some of the other models some air time as well. SVX's, XT(6)s, 360's would be good as they are the one models that usually get neglected.

Thanks again to all. Nicky, when you get ready please send the URL to me as well.

Definatly, Jeff's has the info needed. Mine was a quick 5 minute job that i whipped together. I'd feel better passing something like Jeffs out than mine.

Maybe we should include a map with driving directions on the back of them, but have them state specific. So oregon flyers would have Oregon directions, California flyers would have CA directions etc...

The flyers will and should have the URL for the website and maybe rather than directions on the flyers we can provide links to directions on the site.

Directions will be a nice thing to add though. It will give people an idea where they are going.

Not alot of people that I aproach with Subaru's have the internet. In order to find hard-core Subaru enthusiasts, i have to travel into the woods. Truckee, Lake Tahoe and Auburn aren't known for their high speed internet access.

A couple stopped infront of my house a few weeks ago in a '82 wagon, I gave them the USMB info and my email address but havent heard from them. See them every now and then, but it seems they arent interested in the internet as much as they are subaru's.

Later tonight when I have some time i'll put together some maps from different states. I just installed Microsoft Streets & Trips 2002 and its GREAT for planning out roadtrips.

http://members.dsl-o.../~sawlid/wcss6/

sorry its so long, but you gotta host where you can

btw if you guys want to get an actual domain its only like $20.00/year

www.wcss.com has a nice ring

Jeff: great job!!! :clap:

I like it so much I say keep the same setup - but plug in an SVX front shot where the middle (bigest) WRX front shot is - and hopefully someone has an XT daytime snow-shot so it can plug right into the upper left corner like the rallycar, that beautiful fade job is worth keeping. And since that will leave only rallycar on the bottom - maybe it can be moved to the left so more of it is seen so the impreza folks have some eye-candy as well. Thats my 1/50th of a dollar. Once again - good show :)

Back now... made some changes. Still need a replacement for the blue wagon in the bottom corner. Preferably it would be a 80's white RX, or a brat. If you guys could look through your collections of sube pics, and find an RX or brat that is in sort of the same position as the blue wagon there now, send it to me at jeff at jdccs.com or even post it here. Doesn't matter what the car is doing, since I am just going to take the blue wagon out, and put a different car in it's place, but still use the huge dust cloud. That is why the car's orientation is sort of important. I can mirror it too, so passenger or driver side doesn't matter, just the angle of the shot. Thanks!! This is how it looks with the SVX.

I can put together a sub-domain for the WCSS page. If you want, we can make it something like http://wcss.usmb.net or wcss6.usmb.net

Let me know, that way we can include it with the flyers.
Im working on directions from certain routes. if people already have convoys planned with meeting times, please PM me and let me know an Address and time to meet, i will have maps with routes, travel distance and estimated costs for multiple departure routes.

Dave. We need to get together and start planning our convoy. Should we have Sacramento be a meeting place? or maybe farther north?

**EDIT***Ok... i saw the webpage and it looks so good, i cant help but make a redirection page from usmb.net. The URL is http://wcss.usmb.net
Should take you to a portal page with the flyer, if you click on it, it directs you to the official page's link.

Might take some time to become active for ppl on the east coast.
