Mojave Town Welcome Billboards
(return to print designs overview)
These billboards were designed for the Mojave Chamber
of Commerce and the Mojave Spaceport. They are a collage
of three of Mike's photos, detailed below. There are three
billboards currently, soon to be four, at various entrances to
the town and the spaceport main entrance. The final
composite image is 10,000 pixels wide CMYK and around 200MB in
file size. It is printed using durable inkjet on
vinyl. The signs have been up for two years now and
show little sign of fading. The printers commented that
it was one of the best looking source files they had ever seen.
You can walk right up to the sign and it looks great.
I made sure that every detail was taken care of. I
carefully up-resed the images using Genuine Fractals and several
other techniques to ensure even, fine grain. Each
sign had a different aspect ratio, so several versions were made
some with a windmill cropped off the right side.
