    So last week there was mention of running another classroom challenge. I needed to make a showroom banner sample for one of those fancy banner up stands and made up this fictitious sale banner. I figure this would work for the criteria.

    This banner is 34" wide by 72" high. Why don't you all just use the text I have here and do your own layout, color schemes, etc. If you would rather use a horizontal layout then that is okay too.

    This is not a contest to be judged and there isn't a time limit. It's purely for fun and a way to see how everyone else would approach a design using all their individual skill sets. I encourage everyone to submit a design no matter what your skill level. This will be a great way for those that might have difficulty with a design to see other solutions and approaches.

    Remember, you MUST have fun doing this!!!! That's the main goal. I plan to add a couple of more this week if time permits and hope others will put up more than one.

    P.S. if you think the copy should be arranged in a different manner for priorities sake, then go for it!

    Yikes ya already did a good design / layout so this presents a better challenge to improve & enjoy doing & learning.
    Like myself using CorelDraw X5 now & I hardly ever open, so this is a great chance to learn something & how to put in here also, been looking for more time to get in the habit of using.

    So let the games begin.

    yes....a 4 year old made the color selections. I showed him the color palette he could use...he made the decisions.

    Your 18 month old needs to work on spacial relationships but appears to have mastered mono-chromatic color theory.

    Last one....
