I think it is a good idea to have a press kit ready. Blender has it too.

Any takers at this task? Smile

I could try work on this.. seems I am churning my head around publicity these days, so iwould be like a small task here to put at hand from all the thought. 

But first I want to brainstorm:

  • Logo Files (Davis has these correct?) / Icons
  • Website Banners
  • BFA themed stock images for decoration (those spheres are cool)
  • BFA themes social icons
  • Simple Guidlines/Terms and Conditions for sponsoring BFA document
  • Link to Publicity images from the Facebook page that I produce that could be shared elsewhere? (they all contain Bforartsts.de in them)
  • Phrases/Tags to slap around
  • Watermarks to slap around
  • Mascot (built from a future competition?)
  • Quick Sell video to distribute (could be a longer milestone)

Before fully committing I will finish the Full BFA Shortcuts.

ideas from Wiki:

Common components

There is no universal guide to the elements that should be included in a press kit or media kit, but the following are common components:[3]

  • Backgrounder with historical information on the company or individual.
  • Fact sheet listing specific features, statistics, or benefits.
  • Biographies of key executives, individuals, artists, etc.
  • Past press coverage
  • Photos or other images (high resolution) of key executives, logos, products, etc.
  • A press release detailing the current news the media kit is sent in reference to
  • Media contact information (usually of a public relations department or spokesperson)
  • A CD, DVD, software title, video, etc. as appropriate for the sender of the release
  • Collateral advertising material, such as: postcard, flier, newspaper ad, etc.

Cool. Thanks Draise Smile

I wouldn't overdo it though. Blender has four screenshots and the logo in a few variations. Plus a bit info material. Ah, where was the logo stuff from Davis located? Was it attached in the forum or in one of the threads here?

Here's the logo set from Davis. They are svg, so you might need to export it with Inkscape to jpg or png

Great. Thanks. I use Inkscape a lot so all good.

I grabbed this taks now. It will be as simple as the Blender one. Some Logos, some images. A bit text. We can extend it at a later point then.

Sounds good. Jeepers I'm too slow and bogged down by work and debt. Sorry man.. Getting there.

All good. No need for a sorry. I have the advantage that i can work 24/7 at Bforartists. You have a real life and a job Wink

Press kit is online here. 3.37 Mb: https://www.bforartists.de/data/Bforartists_Press_Kit.zip

The download link is to find in the Wiki. https://www.bforartists.de/wiki/bforartists-wiki

It's basically the images from the Features page plus the icons.

Done.
