Re: Brochure for potential sponsors: need help!

Ok, it's ready to go to print! (source)
(sorry that I didn't have the energy to change the texts further, we'll do better next time)

Hi Andreas,

Is the brochure done? Or are you still working on the color? (I've got people I can send it to!)

        since the objection of the flyer is to reach potential
        sponsors, maybe
        we should consider telling them what benefits they'll get, not
        features GNOME has.

        I had some free time today and tried to make a draft so it's
        easier to see what I mean. The draft should be available here:
    Oh, I just finished the layout on Friday, just need to figure out
    the best tint of green left basically. Should have let you know

    I'm not sure I'm a fan of the two column layout in your version.
    Feels like a lot of text, and if you give the folder to someone on
    a conference, you can't really expect them to read through the
    whole thing (or anything at all, if it seems to heavy).

        Please note the text probably contains errors, since I'm not a
        English speaker. It's also not quite finished since I'm not
        concerning many GNOME developments. I also had to waste some time
        redoing the layout in Scribus since I'm not used to Inkscape.
    What texts did you change exactly?
    I like the "4 reasons why you should you should join...", but
    maybe the GNOME text is a bit big and too detailed.
    I'll let other weight in on what texts they like better.

        Also, while the design is nice, I'd like to suggest to use a
        format -- a double sided A3 in 4 colors, for example. With digital
        printing, it shouldn't be that expensive, anymore.
    My idea for the folded A4 format was that it would be possible to
    print it out with a regular printer for anyone who wanted. I've
    kept it to 2 color print in order to save money when printing it
    at the printer (even though we might end up doing a small amount
    of them printed digitally, so maybe it won't matter).
