Co-Ordinated Graphics sets, Print, Screen, Web.
OK guys, I'm in a creativity low ATM.
Here is a email I recieved today.

Digital Juice Juice Drops vols, 59 (allPARTICLES), 11(xtraGRUNGE), 57 (simpleTHOUGHTS)
Digital Juice Motion Design Elements vols, 010, 001, 024, 008
Digital Juice StackTraxx vols 40
Digital Juice Jimpbacksm HD28 (HighImpact), HD07 (Extreme II), HD22 (Simple Thoughts)(Matching set with Juice Drop
And Video Co-Pilots Riot Gear.
ATM I'm thinking of going the SimpleThoughts route.
But have no ideas on what to include.
I'm all open to suggestions.
What is SAC? (Besides Strategic Air Command, which has ominous Cold War overtones)
Bet it's his church logo.
Lucas ... this is a huge project when you first start it. And when they want to mix print media into it, that now means you get to do it twice - once at print resolution and dimensions, and again for the screen.
I've uploaded 2 sets recently - and Gene uploads them all the time. Are you looking at video or stills?
With the DJ products you mention, some are good enough for print, but some aren't. The PowerCuts and Jumpbacks aren't even going to print a 5.5 x 4.5 flyer size well.
I'm running to work (late) but will monitor this thread.
First place to start is to make a list of the specific screens you're going to need it for, and the printed sizes you'll need to coordinate with... whatever it is.
It's much more tackle-able (is that a word) when you have identified exactly what you are facing.
You can SO do this.
Salvation Army Church would be my guess...though I couldn't figure it out either until I glanced at Lucas' home church name...
and yes-the print media stuff is always a challenge. When I did my calendars this year, I was using 600 dpi-which translates out toe 6600 pixels by 5100 pixels for an 8.5" X 11" sheet (YIKES). Since I was creating both a screen and print res at the same time, I started large and reduced it down. Be aware though that you'll likely need to tweak your graphics when scaling down-while a 24 pixel stroke looks fine at print size, for example, your text is pretty much unusable at screen res....sigh.
Well due to the thread playing up on me, i was unable to define SAC
SAC = Sunday Arvo Church, a much more informal time, with food after it,
I'm thinking of using the simpleTHOUGHTS combo, as they are a matching set.
Make sure that someone gives you a *layered* logo file *with transparency* so you can lay the logo over your composited images. If not, you're going to have to extract it yourself.
Consider an embossed logo, that's a completely different, but elegant, simple, and fairly contemporary look.
There's some of those PowerCuts that should mix and match nicely with Simple Thoughts, too.
What if I made it all in Premiere or After Effects using a high resolution, then simply exported it to photoshop for the printed parts?
Lucas ... the resolution for print is 300 dpi. You don't want to work with that many pixels in your video, it'll take too long.
For a cd label alone, that's 4.5 inches in diameter, which is 1350 pixels each way.
For a half-sheet flyer, even with a 1/4th in print margin, that's 1500 x 2400 pixels.
And I'll let you do the rest of the math for anything larger than a half sheet...
SOMETIMES, depending on the kind of graphics, and the quality of the graphics, you can get away with 200 dpi without ever knowing it. But that's still a bunch of pixels.
