Information Panels

If there's something I have learnt from exhibiting it's that people love information boards. If you are able to captivate their attention by creating some information panels then you are likely to have people hanging around for that bit longer. Not only that, but I have found that people are more willing to talk to you about the layout!

Thanks to a suggestion made by someone on NGRM, I have created my own:
The next job will probably be to create a layout guide for exhibition managers so that I can just hand one out instead of handwriting all the information every time I'm asked to an exhibition!

Thanks John!

How big is each panel and where will they be positioned in relation to the layout?

They do look good!

Thanks Micky,
Each panel is A4 sized and will be sited on the front of the layout on the layout fascia. I have yet to get round to printing them off though!

Nice neat work, so much better than some tatty photocopy in a plastic sleeve full of drawing pin holes!

Jam said...

Thanks Chris,
I couldn't agree more! The amount of times I've seen faded, illegible examples in some creased plastic folder...
Now to work out how to attach it to the layout!

Maybe laminate and use double sided foam tabs?

That's an idea, I can use the laminater at school.
I'll also need to work out how to construct the board for them to sit on as the baseboard is curved (I like a challenge!)
