Need a design for 996Outpost cards

Post by 5chn3ll » Tue Mar 27, 2018 8:44 am

Hey, kids:

I want to print up some business cards for the site I can hand out / windshield at events. However, my graphic design skills are shite.

Anyone willing to spend some time putting together artwork? I'll print 'em, but I need help making something that is not ass-ugly.

I'll pick a printing site and post specs here.

If you do decide to help out, be sure to post a reply here so we don't have multiple people burning time on the same project. If more than one person is interested, we can go with 2-sided cards. That might be cool...

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

I have included a recent selfie if it would be helpful. I was going for the Kalashnikov look, but I think I missed.

So you are saying we are a "freak"-show? HHHMMM...seems appropriate. (Apologies for the 1920's terminology)

Yep, we're the freaks of the Porsche circus! We have many great acts like...

1. The Bore Scored Bunch
2. The Great D-Chunker
3. The Boxster Cross Hair Dressers
4. The ever creepy "MOST GHOST"
5. The Amazing Dr. Schnelly juggling 29 modes of failure while whistling "Yakety Sax"
6. The Great and Mysterious "IMMOBILIZER" - watch him try to gain access to the inside
7. The Wondrous InterMixer
8. Fancy Art Magic by Gary Graphite Grey
9. The Hot Taco Lover - Gnat
10. The Great and Powerful IMS Illusionist - YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHAT STAGE YOU ARE!!!

Maybe ya'll can name a few?

Happy to help if ya want. Quick mockup attached. I bit the clip art from a shirt that was made a while back, but haven't seen it sold recently so doubt they'd mind. It's also augmented so it's technically a "new work." Open to ideas if you have 'em....

That's KC-Car-Guy's art. Schnelly, I suspect that he'd be OK with using it if we ask him for permission. Let me know if you want to use that, and I'll ask him this Saturday morning at PCA breakfast if he hasn't chimed in here by then already.

You are very creative, although kinda scary! Yeah WildBilly would be a good circus name. "WildBilly the Wide-body", maybe. BTW I earned that name from the track announcers at Eagle Raceway during my sprint car driving career.
