    Suggestion thread for posters. Any artist can come here and use whatever ideas are posted.
    This is not a thread where I personally take requests, it's where anyone who thinks they have a good poster slogan can share it in hopes it inspires someone to create a texture out of it.

    How to contribute to this thread:
    Post a slogan, or suggestion.
    "How about a sign with 'Warning: Men working' on it?"
    "I would like to see more posters using the 'General Industries Co.' text"
    "There isn't enough posters about alpine logging, something simple like 'Binksi Logging' maybe?"



    Posters in TF2 are very simple actually. They rarely have any substantial text to them, mostly it's something like

    [Company/Product]
    [image]
    [Is amazing]

    [​IMG]

    But there are many variations
    [​IMG]

    Or just a statement
    [​IMG]
    A company
    [​IMG]

    Some are only text (there are very few of these, but they are very useful)
    [​IMG]

    More examples:

    http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/List_of_companies

    ---

    Get going, think up something clever or useful. Personally I think it's the most difficult part of poster creation.. which is one of the reasons I started the thread.

    Seconded. I like to make posters, but can never think of anything to put on them. One of the few things I have ever thought of is:

    For payload maps:

    "No bombs beyond this point.
    Pretty please?"

    Well, besides mapping, overlays are the only art of custom TF2 content that I know how to do. So I might take on some of these requests.

    EDIT: Also, would be nice if people could specify a style (if you have one in mind, at least). Say, an ad, a warning sign, a note on paper, etc.

    Meh, I'm not pro with photoshop but I was bored.

    EDIT:
    I'm still bored, bored but not as pleased with this one. Need to fiddle about with filters and such to make it more TF2-ey

    I will release some of these I'm making in a bit/tomorow as vtf's if people want them.

    Good ideas,
    I made a quick template of the sign and font, so I can basically type in whatever I want there now.
    [​IMG]

    I'm gonna add some brush strokes and wear on it. It's a little too pristine atm... Also comment on the yellow hue, I picked that one without much thought, I just didn't want it bright yellow because it would probably look a bit odd ingame.

    Gonna do the train one later, it's a really nice suggestion.

    You might want to compare the yellow of the sign with props_hydro\road_bumper01.mdl which I think has a nice hue and also nice wear.

    I opt for darker colors on posters the lights normally brighten it up anyhow.

    Also, Can we get a reference picture thread going? I would love one of those to dump my cloud photos into...ill make it my self :)

    There's already a trespassers will be violated sign.

    [​IMG]

    Would be a pretty simple edit if you want it to say shot instead.
