Podium Sign Redux

A couple of years ago I wrote about a podium sign I'd designed for the Official Opposition. That sign featured then-leader David Swann prominently, but after David stepped down we naturally needed a new graphic. The old sign featured way too much red, so this time around I opted for a white background, added a gradient border and substituted the Alberta Legislature dome in place of the leader.

In retrospect, the design might have worked better without the dome. It feels a little crowded off in its corner. Still, I think it represents a moderate improvement over the original.

I actually like the dome - I think it links the Liberal to the legislature. A place where they "belong."

I think that curvy thing under the text is a bit busy, however.

I beg to differ with the title of your post. You have over the last number of years been engaged to, and been paid for, performing various acts of graphic design. It's as good a qualification as I have.

Own it Earl...you earned it

Just noticed it was your Facebook post I was quibbling with.... Sigh.

If I had one quibble, it would be that the words are covering up part of the Legislature. Maybe over and up a little bit for the words...?

Either way, it's a nice-looking sign.
