image -new paragraph- Not that we geomatics don't have creativity, but to this mara of Management Engineering could use to invest in basic marketing, because the brochure of invitation has a very bad copy / pastered art, pixelated images, texts stretched to the perverse and no corporate image on the five sheets ... ah! The plane of the last one is pretty.

Either way, visitors from other countries can contact the mail, because the hotel information cannot be read very well in the pixel node of the brochure.

  1. Gerardo is right, if people will invest in an event like this over 1,000 dollars, the most sensible thing is to spend a little money on professional marketing.

    all the best

  2. This Brochure thing… it really sucks… .. =) (From a design point of view, I mean…)

    ..The same "indignation" that today a cartographer or a GIS specialist feels when he comes across a "neocartographer"...

    It is a good example of a situation that designers have lived for more than 20 years, I would say, at which point the technologies / tools we use became massively popular.

    In my opinion, the popularization of tools, apart from these "eventual disasters" like this little brochure "designed" by some bored engineer, is a good thing. You have to see the positive. The more people are within the reach of tools, the richer the World is.
    Also, the tool is just that. Value added is not there. The GIS specialist who dominates a tool, if he does not have the imagination to do interesting analysis does not serve much, right?

    Sorry I left the topic with all this comment .. =)
