This banner was made for a main display kiosk in the library to display the month’s theme: Gardening and Home Improvement (the actual dimensions are 111″ x 11″). To create this, I was inspired to do a yard scene; the picket fence and garden tools could represent both gardening and a sense of home/improvement. To start, I created a picket fence in Adobe Illustrator to the exact size and style that I wanted. In front of that I placed a repeated section of grass clip art that made the “lawn” appear to be different lengths. I couldn’t find a rake, flowers, or shovel that seemed quite right online, so I also created those elements in Illustrator and placed them within the InDesign document. A blue “sky” and bold text finish off the banner, making it clear and eye-catching.
