1. open the attachment
2. slap a "speaker banner" of some sort on it
3. email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org (or put it back on here as a word document)
so it's the middle of finals week at princeton, and i'm trying to make some speaker name tags for a conference coming up (sounds simple enough, but not for me, because i don't know what i'm doing!) i love good design, and i hate it when things are cheesy. (which makes this EXTRA frustrating...)
so now it's 4 am and i'm getting NOWHERE. i thought i'd put the challenge out to you all. i've seen your work; it's amazing. (i lurk around these message boards all the time) i am quite certain you can do something in 15 minutes that i've been trying to figure out for 4 hours. (i'm not kidding) here's the template, in microsoft word (i know, i know, seriously!) all it needs is some way to designate that the nametag belongs to a speaker, and not an attendee... a banner across the top? the word "speaker" at an angle? i'm not kidding about how easy this should be, i just don't know how to do it, and so i'm having a nervous breakdown.
i'll pick my favorite one, and speakers all over princeton will be thankful they don't have to wear a hideous nametag for 3 days...
it has to be done by 4pm tomorrow.
PS, if you want to change the fields for names, that's fine, they just can't move around at all (because the princeton theological seminary logo is in the whitespace...)
i'm hoping this works, or i'm just getting out a sharpie, seriously :)
PS the conference is a conference about human rights, and i'm a student who's not getting paid to do this work (lest you worry that this newbie is trying to use you to do my work...)
