[Marketing] please create a new project flyer for your project with the new branding till FOSS4G Boston

Hello OSGeo projects,

it is not a long time till FOSS4G Boston where we will have an OSGeo booth with the new OSGeo logo and new flyers for the projects.

This is why we need your help! Please create a new project flyer for your OSGeo project with the new branding. We try to arrange it that the flyer will be handed out at OSGeo booth in Boston from August 14-19, 2017 (http://2017.foss4g.org/)

The current flyer are out of date. You find them here as a template.
https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/browser/marketing/flyer/project_brochure_pdfs
https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/browser/marketing/flyer/

You also could take information from OSGeo-Live to setup your new flyer.
https://live.osgeo.org/en/overview/overview.html

You find the new branding material at:
https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/tree/master/marketing

Have a look at the GeoforAll flyer or OSGeo-Live flyer. You can see how a flyer could look like
https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/blob/master/marketing/print/geoforall_a4.pdf
https://github.com/lucadelu/osgeo/blob/osgeolive/marketing/print/osgeolive_names_a4.svg

The best way is to fork the repository on GutHub and make a pull request with your new flyer at the end.

These are the steps for you:

1. How to set up the fonts (on linux create the folder $HOME/.local/share/fonts and copy the 4 .ttf there)
* Download from https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/tree/master/marketing/branding/fonts

2. Take the svg template and modify it with the content of your project
https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/blob/master/marketing/print/osgeo_a4.svg
You can modify the svg either with a texteditor or f.e. inkscape.

3. In the end you can create a pull request to the osgeo repository

We try to organize it so the flyer will be printed and present at the OSGeo booth

Thanks for your help.

If you have questions. Please ask on the list or contact me or Luca http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/User:Lucadelu

PS: Luca finished the OSGeo-Live flyer and wants to work on the Zoo-Project and MapServer flyer too.

flyer could look like
https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/blob/master/marketing/print/geoforall_a4.pdf
https://github.com/lucadelu/osgeo/blob/osgeolive/marketing/print/osgeolive_names_a4.svg

or the GRASS one, probably the best right now...

(pay attention that the github rendering is not using the right fonts
so the texts are non well aligned)

The best way is to fork the repository on GutHub and make a pull request
with your new flyer at the end.

please use new branch for each flyer you are doing

These are the steps for you:

1. How to set up the fonts (on linux create the folder
$HOME/.local/share/fonts and copy the 4 .ttf there)
* Download from
https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/tree/master/marketing/branding/fonts

You can modify the svg either with a texteditor or f.e. inkscape.

I usually modified the text using a text editor, with inkscape I was
not able, and move the text blocks and images using inkscape.

Pay attention that the space between lines is 13 pixels (you can fix
it using the text editor and set the right y value according to the
previous one)

3. In the end you can create a pull request to the osgeo repository

please do the pull request only when the flyer is finalized and
discussed with your community.

Thanks for your help.

I already started them :wink:
