Ok, so basically the banner just needs to have both logos on it. I think I misunderstood this task as I thought it meant redesigning the ubuntu-ie logo.
So armed with my new knowledge, what else should be on the banner other than the 2 logos blown up?
Apologies if that's a bit of a silly question, I'm just trying to work out
* What other text should be on the banner (for example - "Ubuntu Ireland" or "Ubuntu Ireland Loco")?
* Should other graphic design be present on the banner (or should it just be a plain white background)?
* Is this a Lucid-specific banner or a banner for all events? Do we need to work in a Lucid graphic or the text "Lucid Lynx"?
* Has a printing company been chosen? Or do we have a shortlist?
* Are there any requirements for the printers? (such as limiting the number of colours used or any CMYK vs RGB colourspace limits)
