New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is for a conference focusing on women's political issues scheduled for Boston to coincide with the Democratic nominating convention.
The information I received from the client was basically asking for something professional but not super traditional -- a tiny bit edgy is okay with them. The magenta is a color they asked for (the other color they like is a really lemon-y yellow, close to process yellow, which makes me think of a bedspread my sister had in 1977).
These are a couple of ideas I put together to get started. Fonts used are Akzidenz and Hitchcock (clumsily modified).
Does anyone have advice or suggestions on the design? Thanks in advance, I value your opinions.
