Galway's all Ignite!

Ignite returns to Galway this December. I’ve been asked to handle the various flyers and posters for the event, but I’ve really run into a horrible blank in the positioning of some elements. Above is the base look.

    We had that for our last event, and our hope is to distance ourselves from that.

    It’d look a lot better if you had a stock crowd picture shot.

    What about making it about the numbers
    20 speakers, 13 slides, 5 minutes etc make the numbers bigger than the text, like 5 times bigger, people read the numbers at a glance and then go back over text more closely, also make the guy have a lightbulb in his speech bubble, both as an idea and illuminating. 2 cents lodged, I expect to earn interest.

    I don’t even know if that’s the kind of feedback you’re looking for! :o)

    So in the end, I sent my poster off to the Organizer:

    1. The Organizer forwarded the poster to the Printer.
    2. The Organizer assumed I had the time wrong and asked the Printer to alter it.
    3. The Printer, dealing with: 1. A flattened PSD file, and 2. A PDF, decided to change the time by hand. Poorly.
    4. Printer prints posters.
    5. The Organizer realizes that I had, in fact, the correct time. Is now stuck with ~200 posters which have the incorrect time sloppily detailed on them.
    6. Mark, furious that neither Organizer nor Printer sought to contact Mark about updating the poster, refuses to pencil in the correct date by hand, when requested.
