Looking better, a few more things

  1. page 2 header looks like it is missing the end of it?
    • AKADEMY IS THE ANNUAL GATHERING OF THE KDE COMMUNITY. KDE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST FREE SOFTWARE COMMUNITIES WITH MORE THAN 1800 CONTRIBUTORS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
    • "KDE community" should have an uppercase C
  2. page 8 item 2 line 5: tTeam shouldn't have the lowercase t (leftover from the change tracking I think)
  3. page 9 "Additional Opportunities": the text from the odt hasn't been copied and the list should be
    • Coffee Break Sponsor
    • Lunch Sponsor
    • Welcome Event Sponsor
    • Social Event Sponsor
    • Day Trip Sponsor
  4. page 9: the email address still has the extra trailing "-"

    Thanks

Ok everyone, here is a new version. I used the recommended text provided by Paul and applied the latest changes requested by Kenny. Please review. @paulb if new changes are required, we will need the Scribus version you're working on instead of the version I am working with. My version is just temporary to get the brochure out faster.

@abetts there is a new version of the text in Promo Team Resources/Akademy/2019/Sponsors/Brochure/. It is called Promo akademy-sponsorship-brochure-2019_AB_PB_ID_KD.odt. It is very similar to the other one, but has @duffus 's corrections.

Some more observation from the last PDF

  • The title page should probably not have "Sponsorship Opportunities 1" on it?
  • Page 4, "Save the date! Akademy 2019 07-13 of September at University of Milan-Bicocca in" looks truncated? If it just says in Milan and space is short we can probably remove that at the end?
  • Some of the headings have full stops at the end which isn't normal. @paulb also agrees they shouldn't

abetts added a comment to T10628: Akademy 2019 sponsorship brochure.

I used the text I received from Paul.

That is not correct. As per your own words:

For this, I went to the 2018 brochure that was in the promo materials page in Nextcloud.

The text I asked you to use is in Share at https://share.kde.org/s/jrwMJ9b2GBWFj92 (akademy-sponsorship-brochure-2019_AB_PB_ID.odt) and was re-written, edited and proofread by @skadinna and myself. It solves many of the problems pointed out by @duffus and I am attaching it here also just in case.

We posted the final version of the text for you on Share on the 22nd of March. Revise your Matrix logs of that day and you will see I sent you the message advising you of the availability of the text at 12:26 CEST.

I have looked over the brochure and it is beautiful. Congratulations.

Not yet, I have to recreate the file since upon export, it lost all the sponsor images, while it included others, etc. The file you have here is the most updated one. The Scribus file will need editing to catch up. For now, if you need an edit, let me know and I can do it and export a new PDF.

This is problematic and the reason I must insist that media produced by Promo be easily accessible and modifiable by everybody. I know I can rely on you to introduce changes, but what if you, by no fault of your own, become unavailable at the moment there is an important modification that needs to be done urgently? If that were to happen, we'd be screwed. I agree this is unlikely, but the prospect should make everybody nervous

That is why I must insist you try to use free software solutions such as Scribus, even if they are not as polished as proprietary alternatives, as well as fonts and graphics with free licenses.

For what its worth, I am pretty sure you would've been able to produce the same good-looking brochure with Scribus. After all, it is you that is the talented designer, not the software.

Small "complaint" that can probably be 99% ignored.

The PDF metadata (available in okular in File->Properties) shows the document was created on non free software (serif affinity) on a non free OS (macOS)

Maybe the software has options to remove that from the metadata? If not maybe you want me to scrub those before final publishing? It doesn't send the best of the messages, though i have to say i don't know how many more bored people like me are out there that would check that.

Your feedback has been addressed. Thank you for pointing that out. I have indeed created there, unfortunately, Scribus has not been cooperative with the design.

So... is the Scribus document on Share current?
