Thanks for stopping by my personal blog. This is a collection of my stories, adventures and wicked instagram shots.
This blog will include:
The purpose is to mainly keep a record for myself of my Scouting adventures, to save for the future…like a digital scrapbook.

One thing I love doing is Poster Design. The creativity required gets my juices flowing and the design happens rather quickly. So when the opportunity to design a poster for promotion of my Rover Crew’s Annual Christmas Party, I jumped right on board.
Within 24 hours, the design was plotted and brought to life in Adobe Illustrator, my favorite vector graphics software. The benefit of using vector graphics is the flexibility of the objects, allowing high resolution editing (unlike bitmap images), easy resizing and the range of vector graphics available.
The design of this poster is targeted to event-specific information, such as the Kris Kringle and Dress Up Competition, as our intended market (South Australian Rover Section) already know who we are, and already expect the event, being an annual event.
A benefit of vector graphics is the ability to reformat the design for other sizes, especially for websites and social media. The next image suits for the Facebook event’s cover image, and as a full-screen image on our website.
It maintains the theming, but with minimal information as its intended location is attached to the event information digitally.
Christmas posters are fun, but I wish it was 2017 already!
