joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

Like to give away at competition?

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2016-06-21 15:36:44

With our logo and colors, we could totally give those to sponsors (they're a bit expensive to just hand out to anyone). Or for workshops in the future, we could dissect them, and have branded frankenstein things. Just a thought, since I'm planning out a BIMA workshop right now (expect an email later today)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-06-21 15:39:08

Definitely sounds cool, especially if we could get them in our colors

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2016-06-21 15:40:06

That's why I got excited (these ones are customizable, and meant for businesses to include their logos on the center disc)

Coach and I are talking and we want to remove the #shoutouts channel since it basically has no use

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:34:13

Can we remove a default channel?

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)

Are you doing this all on the phone right now ?

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)

looks like we can Archive it

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:35:30

basically removes everyone from it

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:35:53

I will do that and if we still have issues we can find a way to completely remove it

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:36:05

alright.

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:36:26

Is there a way to delete a channel rather than archive it. I created a channel which I wish to delete.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:36:59

Click the gear at the top and click additional options, since you created it you might be able to delete it

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:37:32

Actually I just found out

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:37:38

One concern I have is that a student will not be communicating in the appropriate channel or is using the announcement channel when they should not be.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:38:00

Coach, archive it and then click at the bottom where it says close channel

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:38:23

Thanks1

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:38:39

I believe we can make it so only certain people can post there

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-09-13 21:39:00

Only admins can post in announcements

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:39:05

In announcments ?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:39:09

There we go

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:39:21

Great. Who are the admin so far ?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:39:32

That should work since the only admins are mentors, captains and James since he is the slackmaster

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:40:15

Great !!

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:42:49

So right now if I was a student and I join slack team. They could not post until they are invited to a channel . Correct ?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:42:59

No

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:43:13

They would have access to the main subteam channels and be able to view announcements

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:43:37

(all the public channels marked with #)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:43:42

Almost all students won't need to be invited they can start communicating right away

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:44:12

Not the #announcement channel.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:44:23

That is the only exception

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:44:31

Right. But everyone can view it

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:44:36

Public channels can be viewed by all

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:44:42

They can communicate through direct messages.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:44:47

That too

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:45:19

So once a student joins they can direct message and communicate in the subteam channels

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:46:43

Students have to be invited into the # subteam channels ?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:46:48

Nope

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:47:10

They can join them by clicking on the + button by the top of the channel lisys

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)

Got it. Thanks for your patience. So in our conversation are we conducting in the correct channel ?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:48:56

Not really. Captains would be better

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:49:05

Let's continue there (sorry for bothering you james)

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:49:42

Who knows more about Slack ? James or Jon ?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:49:49

James

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-09-13 21:49:50

Easy

coachchee (echee@bisd303.org)
2016-09-13 21:50:49

So maybe James should be included. but he is not in Captains. Solution ?

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)

@kevinhawkins are you the domain owner? if so can you add an A record in the dns with the title beta and value 158.69.205.161 - SIde note I want to get our domain on cloudflare to take advantage of their CDN if it is not yet. We can also switch now as it is almost ready. Final tweeks and then just need to look for other bugs.

probably null/undef

james (james@slattery.tech)

Could it be that the article.php is set to 0644

james (james@slattery.tech)

so it cannot return that template because of perms?

jack (jack@phroa.net)

it's trying to get a member field of something that isn't an object, probably $post in this case. pretty sure 644 is fine

I don't really know how the website is set up but I feel like the /event/ page isn't a blog type and doesn't have any posts, so if it's trying to fetch a post from that page, well, it won't have one

james (james@slattery.tech)

The url slug for the events calendar pluign is /event. I am thinking since the plugin acts as a secondary blog but for posts that the DPS is trying to pull those events as blog posts

@joncoonan Zoho has been around for a while & they have an impressive set of offerings. I'm not familiar with Falcon.io. I mentioned on one of the other channels that getapp.com is a good place to discover & compare tool options in different categories. I suspect you might find these tools on there & be able to compare them & probably others.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-02 15:42:12

I actually found them both on getapp

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-10-02 15:45:45

Cool! Useful, eh? In a past job I used to help software engineering work teams set up their structure & processes, and part of that was help the groups select the tools they would use. The basics are this: 1) Start with your requirements - what does your organization need? List them out & prioritize them because probably no tool will be a perfect match. 2) What is your budget? 3) Identify options that are within your budget, and then use the prioritized requirements to guide your decision.

2016-10-02 15:50:32

Different topic: I wanted to ask a favor... As a new mentor, I could use some help matching names with faces. Would it be possible to do something like have each team member send a picture & a few tidbits of info about themselves, and then create a roster board with names, pictures, and the mini-bios? Maybe it would be a good pre-build marketing team project? Thanks!

Hey all, can we please get out a newsletter in the next 2 days to all our lists to promote Girls Gen this weekend. Jon has some photos you could use. Another story idea - "Why 13 is Spartronics new lucky number" - our new robotics room is 313. Take some photos and a pic of the new trophy case and - wa - la! you have a newsletter. You can update with new artwork later. Time really is of the essence! (-sent from 35,000 feet, on a plane to Nashville)

IDK about the color of the hair, but I canโ€™t really see it any other way

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:21:46

Yeah, I'm going to play around with it a bit more

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:21:53

Like if it was blond it would blend too much, and if it was black it would blend with the helmet

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:22:00

Yeah

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:22:04

The โ€ฆ.thingโ€ฆ on the helmet that is

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:22:09

IDK what it is actually called

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:22:12

exactly it's either very blue or very yellow

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:22:22

helmet yeah

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:22:29

it's hard to balance out

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:23:08

Maybe brighten up the plume on the helmet and make the hair navy

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:23:12

Also, this is more of a general question, why is the skin blue? It doesnt need to be changed, it looks great and we have had it that way for a while, but why is it blue?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:23:26

Easiest thing is just leave out hair, or I could really try and make it look beautiful and change around the colors completely and make like the shirt yellow and helmet blue and hair yellow.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:23:40

No keep the hair, it adds nice motion

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:23:46

Maybe play around with what alex said

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)

Hair looks cool imo

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2016-10-19 19:24:03

On the beautiful new graphic by Rose: What is this for? Before we print any new cards, we need to know how many we have left over and write out for Coach all the planned uses for this to justify spending the dollars. Who will take the lead on those items? Remember, research before creative to make sure we create what we need so it is easy to justify the investment of our Sponsors dollars!

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-10-20 14:04:35

Gotcha, I figured it was time to improve the note card and we don't have do that now I just felt that it could be improved and I had time so I started it but wasn't planning on a date to print them. I agree lets use our money wisely and use the old cards up first.

Check #announcements for something I just threw in there about BIMA, we still need some folks for 12/27 (thanks @rose_bandrowski for signing up for the 30th)

@alex_lf Can we get a slot for promoting the takeover in the Spartan news that comes out on 12/2?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 11:12:49

We should actually do the photobomb idea in like a bunch of the scenes, that'd be hilarious and good marketing.

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-11-03 11:40:03

I had an idea for a video. Essentially, splice one sequence of each of the robotics competition dance songs together into a single medley dance track using a tool like FL Studio, and then do a single dance video to rule them all. Start with the slowest song (BPM-wise), use the DAW for tempo change transition to the next fastest, etc. And maybe add some custom rap at the beginning & end. Do a video like this well, and I could see it getting played at competitons as well.

๐Ÿ‘ joncoonan, rose_bandrowski
rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 13:44:00

Wow that seems like a cool idea. (Most of it went over my head although I think I know what you're getting at)

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-03 15:47:34

Same here Rose๐Ÿ˜‚, I agree though that would be cool.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-03 18:57:21

Sounds cool, I'm with Rose and Charlotte though, not a clue what half of that means.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:00:14

For whatever its worth, I get what you are talking about Chris. Sounds like an awesome build season project ๐Ÿ‘

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:09:23

I definitely think a yearly dance video (Or more if we have time) is in order. We should get more of the team doing it though. And include Kevin finally XD

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:17:18

Yes!

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:18:28

Have you seen the old ones? The're probably my favorite videos to show people my team lol, it helps people see that first teams aren't just building robots! (we actually have fun, wow what a concept)

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:20:37

Lol yeah I have seen some of the old videos. They're great! Plus the music is always perfect.๐Ÿ‘Œ

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:21:22

Of course, being a part of them is hilarious.

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:22:06

I can't wait for another one! We should have James be Jimmy Fallon again. (Or was that just a team meme?)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 19:22:36

Oh that was hilarious, yes it was a meme we were low key marketing just for fun.

@joncoonan: yeah we can make a spartan news bit if you want

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-11-03 20:37:10

BPM=beats per minute (i.e. tempo), DAW=Digital Audio Workstation like FL Studio. Essentially, include a large enough snippet of each song to complete one or two cycles of the associated dance moves. Splice the snippets together into a medley to create the ultimate robotics competition dance training video.

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:42:59

@chrisrin: I really like the mashup idea as well, maybe also include our dance challenges to other teams!

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:47:51

Oh good point, we tried that last year it didn't go too well but could try to market it more.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:48:11

We got 4911, but I can't remember if any other team responded...?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:48:21

We only sent it to 4911

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:48:48

So it was sort of directed to them and I'd call it a success since they challenged someone else and spread it

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:49:12

Oh ok gotcha. I remeber challenging mash and them not responding though.

marie_sachs (marietsachs@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:49:12

We should keep trying though. It is a cool new idea! This year we should send it to the teams we know tend to dance a lot though. The teams we send last year were too serious to dance.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:49:58

Yeah that's true, but maybe we should make it less direct, (perhaps direct to some teams like 4911) but a more challenge to the general washington teams,

marie_sachs (marietsachs@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:50:04

Also I finished typing up all my notes from the marketing meeting yesterday. Should I share them with everybody?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:50:14

Sure

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-03 20:50:52

Actually we directly challenged four teams (including 4911) according to our youtube, unless you never actually sent them the video.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-04 18:50:24

@joncoonan: btw sent you an email about a sponsor. Guys If you haven't already sent something to sponsors if you're given their contact and told to contact them, don't procrastinate! You'll forget

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-04 19:00:44

@rose_bandrowski recieved. I was hoping Kevin would throw in first but I'll respond now since he hasnt

2016-11-04 19:01:07

Ok thank you, he's super busy XD

Hey #marketing , just wanted to fill you in on what we will be doing next meeting. No real โ€œagendaโ€ just a lot of work we need to get done; if we work hard we should be able to get all of it done with time to spare. Heres what we will be doing:

-Decide on T-Shirt style -Update newsletter mailing list -Start looking for dinner speakers for build season (work with Kevin on this one) -Sponsor work time (if you still havenโ€™t reached out then we can work together on it

See you guys then

no

How about this one?

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:03:28

I can get this done in 3d probably

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:03:42

a friend of mine made it

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:09:15

The process of the selection of our logo happened during the first year of the team, and since they we have stuck with the same choice of colors and imagery in the logo. The primary reason is called branding, essentially we want ALL our stuff to be the same so it is recognizable as ours, we have a designated font (SF Transrobotics), certain colors that we use (#1455fb blue and #fcff00 yellow). These were also chosen for a reason, the blue and yellow stand out in a sea of brightly colored team shirts at competition as well as match our school colors. The logo itself; what you see on our shirts and site as well as our flag, stickers, buttons, banner, biz cards, trailer (used to store the robot for travel) etc was designed by a marketing student in our teams first year.

While I applaud your friend for his/her creativity, we canโ€™t use the logo because it does not fit within our branding guidlines, mostly due to the color, font, and style differences. Even if we could the rebranding cost of having to print new flags, buttons, stickers etc would be massive. Sorry

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:10:26

did that

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:10:56

seriously though why do the 3d logos look made of butter?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:12:18

Probs because photoshops 3d features are rudimentary and they are pulling from a 2d into a 3d image. Itโ€™s not a program built for 3d stuff really

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-08 18:12:33

you should try blender

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

its pretty good for stuff like that

People remember our team because of the logo, it's all over town (stickers, buttons, etc), the community knows it and other teams know our logo and colors and associate it with us. I could go on, but changing it would be a bad marketing move since people have already associated our original logo with us.

Hey, I had an idea for a zip up sweater design, I don't know if this was mentioned today but we could have the logo on the back and on the front we could have the name written on one side in the font that we use for all of our stuff, just wanted to throw out an idea

jack (jack@phroa.net)
2016-11-09 21:50:50

I saw a shirt once that had a blank white patch that looked like a nametag, people would sharpie it in. helps with lost sweaters :)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 21:51:26

Sounds dope, we should look into both of those when we start designing the shirt. Iโ€™ll send out the survey tomorrow BTW, swamped with work right now

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 21:54:36

We used those in a summer camp at the museum of flight and it really helped identify everyone

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:10:38

Not a bad idea, definitely something worth looking into/considering!

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:11:46

Something to consider is that any extra stuff is $$, but for team shirts we are already doing front and back designs, and sleeve designs. It would not be hard to modify a sleeve design to have that with no extra cost.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:12:28

You want to put it on the sleeve?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:12:42

I mean I see your point but what a weird place for a name lol

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:13:02

We already have our name tags (if we continue those)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:13:10

Hi I'm Rose! (flips to the side)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:13:28

My understanding is that it would be for identifying whose shirt it is. Probably wrong in that interepretation

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:13:38

Lol yeah for ownership issues I like it but honestly you can just write your name on the tag, it doesn't matter that much.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:14:26

TOtally possible to put it on the front too, and could solve our nametage issue. I like it (thoughts mentors?) @chrisrin @kevinhawkins

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:14:36

If you don't want to lose your shirt write your name in sharpie on the tag, it doesn't seem needed if you're not going to put it on the front.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:15:17

Interesting solution, would make names easy for sure.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:16:29

I think the shirt could have a good name tag system if we put it on the front, maybe to up and to the side of the logo

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:17:20

If there's room

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:17:22

Right where the chest pocket on a t shirt goes is a good spot. An old marketing trick is to put your nametag on the left had side since most people shake with their right and it doesnt get covered up

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:20:17

I see how this could be useful but honestly I think the t-shirts would look better without that. There's enough going on anyway. Plus name tags can be worn not just when your wearing the team shirt. I think we should stick to the old way.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:21:11

It could be a potential fix it we can't make name tags again (not sure if we still have this resource, anyone looking into this?).

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:21:45

Good point.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:22:11

Quick subject change: just texted Aila (old marketing lead from past 2 years) who is at WSU. Judy Levine (our contact at Intellectual Ventures) is currently on vacation in Nepal and will not be back until after thanksgiving. Just an FYI, @Ethan Rininger you are assigned to her correct? I can send you her email address but she may not respond for a while

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:22:17

It could be a problem if we don't always have shirts on but it could really help if we do always wear our shirts, and nametags could be easy to lose

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:23:26

There's definitely pros and cons to both, although name tags seemed to work out well this past year (haven't lost mine yet at least).

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:23:52

But then there would be a lot going on with the shirt if we do that

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:24:49

Yeah, I think it would detract from everything else.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:25:03

I feel like it's a subject worth exploring if it would cost extra, if it would even look good, etc.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:26:25

Love this discussion guys. Keep stuff like this up

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:29:52

Will people outside the team be able to buy shirts, hats, sweaters, etc.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:30:10

We do offer that at open house if I recall correctly

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-09 22:31:30

Okay, so in that case, having a name tag on the shirt could possiblt take away from the visual aspect, it could be useful for us to have it at events, but it could take away from people wanting to buy the shirt at the open house

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:33:12

Another issue is that of the design, it could look like part of the logo from a distance. Lots of stuff to consider when it comes to this. If you want you can DL an image of a blank shirt from the survey Iโ€™ll send out and then practice your photoshop skills by adding the logo and another version with the logo and the name portion. The logo can be found in the Marketing -> Extras folder of the Google Drive

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-09 22:33:32

Legit do that, it would be awesome and super useful for the team to visualize it

Announcement: So I realized last night that most of you donโ€™t really use spreadsheets that often. Which I totally get, it is kinda a more abstract thing that is extremely useful but you just have not had the sort of jobs that require it yet (I barely have myself). So lets practice that skill here. Iโ€™m gonna link the google sheet that has our sponsor info here, take 2 minutes and just look at the stuff assigned to you that you have not yet contacted, then copy it down to whatever you use to organize your life. Thatโ€™s it, you wonโ€™t have to look at it until they reply! Easy-peasy

Regarding the name tag space on the shirt design, one risk is that many people don't print very legibly & some shirts might not look too good as a result. Idea: could make & use stencils of the font used for "Spartronics" on the logo.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-10 13:31:12

I like it. I can testify that my handwriting is not legible at any distance, so that could help

๐Ÿฆ„ rose_bandrowski, marie_sachs
chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-11-10 13:34:22

One other idea: the name tag space could be in the shape of a gear that is interlocking with the gear of the logo - maybe position it upper right relative to the logo?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-10 13:35:58

That could interfere with the logo - not suer about it but still super creative

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-10 13:38:55

Interesting, could be fun but I think it's a tad unnecessary. Very creative!

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-10 14:21:02

It could be worth exploring the idea

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-11-10 14:52:07

Maybe instead of a gear shape for the name tag area, a Steampunk airship?

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:22:27

Good point

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:23:58

Yeah so exactly that but our logo, a really big one on the back. I think that'd look pretty cool at competitions.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:24:05

It would

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:24:28

People would definitely recognize it (if they don't already)

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:24:38

Would it change our brand though? Bc then it would look different from the t-shirts

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:24:57

That would be something to find out

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:25:05

No I don't think so, it's our colors just a different take on the look.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:25:20

It's simply the drive team, drive teams are allowed to stand out.

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:25:36

Oh yeah that makes sense

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:25:43

Yeah that sounds good

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:26:28

Chill out had their drive team completely missing one of their branded colors (blue) And I recognized them and I love it. It's definitely debatable that it could be negative on our branding but I don't think it's that drastic.

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:27:07

Ok cool

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:27:26

Okay yeah, sounds like something to explore

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

Yup

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:34:31

So I think a big reason the jump suits never took off is because it looks really similar to something else. Idk if any of you know about the Fallout series of video games but the mascot for the series wears a blue and yellow jumpsuit with a gear on it. Google "vault boy" and you will see what I mean

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:35:04

Okay I can see that

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:35:34

And that's a negative thing to be associated with..?

2016-11-13 17:35:41
rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:35:48

Or is it just you're trying to be more original.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:36:14

(It doesn't even look like a jumpsuit to me but It would be a problem with our colors being similar)

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:36:33

It is a jumpsuit in the game

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:37:21

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)

Though I feel like if we do the colors split down the middle it wouldn't look as much like it

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

Our brand has less than nothing to do with it so it could be confusing, especially to the world's largest group of nerds.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:42:27

Also the drive team has to want them which is why I've never gotten my wish :/

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:42:57

I don't know, I feel like if it's split in the middle people wouldn't put it with fallout, and the drive team should want to be more recognized

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:43:53

even if it was associated with fallout, would that many people get the /slight/ reference? I'm not nerdy enough to know how popular this game is XD

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:44:16

Is a very popular game

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:44:58

Okay then I ask is it such a bad thing to be referencing it? I don't care that much about the Jumpsuits but it would be fun if we could.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:44:59

Imho we should avoid being confused with other brands. It's not so much the game is bad (it's actually one of my favs) it's just we as our brand should not look like another

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:45:20

Ok, I see your point

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:46:08

We should try to do something special for the drive team this year though (if they allow us).

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:46:15

The main thing I can see being an issue of we split it down the middle is that it doesn't resemble the shirts

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:46:24

I totally agree rose, we should

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:47:04

That's true but I've seen other teams do completely different stuff from their shirts and get away with it (that obviously doesn't mean we should, but it has been done)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:47:07

I want to find a way to do the jump suits though

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:47:35

So I'm down for it, it's just if the drive team / Kevin will go for it

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:47:45

Lol maybe you should get one for yourself like I've done with the tutu

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:48:13

I doubt I could convince I team that's over 50% guys to all wear tutus so I just do it myself lol.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:48:23

I would wear a tutu

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:48:35

Do itttt (amazon like $5)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:49:26

As you've probably seen people have stolen mine before so I think I might buy more so I don't have to give mine away.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:49:49

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-13 17:50:31

Is it just a blue tutu

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 17:50:43

No it's bright yellow

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)

Okay

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

I was thinking about the steampunk top hat thing, we should get goggles too as they're steampunk

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 18:24:10

Already looked into it, FIRST has certain safety regulations when it comes to safety glasses so we will need to find ones that match and are ideally cheap

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 18:24:26

Shouldnโ€™t be too hard though

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-13 18:24:56

All this stuff we have talked about is build season stuff, we should start compiling a list of goals for that since right now most of our efforts should be on fundraising

I don't have anything on calendar for Thursday - will someone please remind us of details? Also, I could probably visit some sponsors with students after school on Friday. We talked about Lynwood Center, but might be best to prioritize prospects & hit highest priorities first.

FYI this is going out over email and Slack, so if you are reading this in email go ahead and hit "reply all" so we can all see.

Alex LF just informed me that Charlotte won't be able to come to our next meeting so we need someone to take over to finish these up. I can provide a Canon Rebel T3 (basically same camera she used) and SD card, but I need someone to volunteer to take the photos.

If you have a camera you want to use and are willing to take the photos that is fine too. Just us know via email or slack.

Ok, so a couple of days ago we talked about jumpsuits, and I just want to entertain the discussion a bit because it's an interesting (if not ultimately important) topic. For those of you that like the 50/50 split of the blue and yellow, why do you like it?

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-16 20:26:13

I just think it would stand out more and show up

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-16 20:26:25

People would recognize it

jack (jack@phroa.net)
2016-11-16 20:26:52

if we could find a company that would make them, they'd be extremely unique.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 20:30:35

Personally, I don't but for kind of a bland reason: we have not done anything like it before; it is a very radical change to our brand in the sense that we go from blue background to blue and yellow background, and possible change the logo, which seems a bit

However I do like it if we dont have the logo, just the colors. However that creates another issue: no logo (duh)

jack (jack@phroa.net)
2016-11-16 20:34:02

left (viewing from the wearer) half is blue, right half yellow; have a yellow breast pocket logo

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 20:34:19

That could work, symmetry aside

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 20:35:42

Another option is plain blue with yellow logo on back, no other marking except maybe the drivers name in the fabric on the breast

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 20:36:01

It doesn't look as much like vault boy as it would if we did stripes

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 21:25:39

I thought it'd look really cool if we had a REALLY big logo on the back, and have it inverse colors.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 21:25:53

They would stand out more

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

yeah it's about lookings cool and being unique ayyy

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 22:05:56

See my issue is that the logo gets changed. Jack had a good solution, make the logo a patch on left or right breast and have the other side be a pockey, idk

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-16 22:07:46

But that's what make it unique. I see what your saying it's just what I had in my mind, tbh not that invested in it anyway.

FYI re: jumpsuits for drive team -very common at Worlds. Even the rookie team from Mexico 2yrs ago wore white jump suits: just google images - FRC robotics jumpsuits. The entire NRG has worn them in the past. That said Rose's idea is unique and would really stand out.

We could wear labcoats

Tom, the Bainbridge Schools Foundation has been our primary funding source since we started the team. They give us ability to allow deductions to be 100% tax-deductible. And unlike any other service, 100% of the funds goes to 4915.

thats pretty sweet

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:08:43

Again many teams wear lab coats as well, so that is another idea to add to the mix

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:09:42

we could all wear white trench coats, tophats and pocketwatchs that double as walkie talkies

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:10:08

and the tophats could have headlamps and our team logo

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

trench coats have a lot of pockets on them so we could keep our tools with us at the competition

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

if we wore yellow and blue jumpsuits it would just make us look like we were ripping off the vault jumpsuit from fallout 3

the yellow and blue jumpsuit is going to be called unoriginal any way we do it

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:16:02

and it wouldn't look very steampunk either

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

Kate Treviรฑo-Yoson (tenorsax@comcast.net)
2016-11-17 16:18:20

I disagree. In my opinion, the jump suit is a very good idea. It would show off some team spirit! ๐Ÿ˜„

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:18:38

a jumpsuit isn't very steampunk though...

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

a white trench coat is a lot better than a labcoat really

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:22:45

it has more pockets, is sturdier and looks a lot better

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:23:24

Tom I respectfully disagree about a jumpsuit, being unable to be unique if it was blue and yellow. rose's sketch of a suit that is half yellow and a half blue I don't believe has been done before and certainly isn't in fallout 3! But the steam punk point is valid, so now the creative challenge for Rose is to make it fit that objective too. There is a team in our state that does trenchcoats; Ijust can't remember which one.

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 16:24:03

on second thought having walkie talkie watches would be a silly expensive gimmick

Maybe a similar idea but constructed differently

I agree, we already agreed upon that point

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

I donโ€™t think this would be a team uniform in any regard, just drive team if at all

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 17:48:55

Too expensive? Also somewhat a radical shift. Also harder to showcase our brand in public if all we have is jumpsuits. Good for competition drive teams though

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 17:50:06

Yeah, agreed it may be not worth the money but standing out and having fun is a plus despite changing the logo a little

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

what are the drivers going to wear?

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

What if we had blue blazers and pants, a black button down, and yellow tie tho

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:05:41

in a competitive environment you want something a bit more breathable than a blazer

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:05:57

Good point

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:06:04

has anyone here watched Battlebots?

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

it was a show that premiered on abc

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:08:00

It gives a pretty good representation of the modern competitive robotics arena

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:08:26

I would consider it required watching for anyone interested in making clothing for our drivers this year

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:10:36

I suggest a trench coat because you can leave it unbuttoned so you can get maximum ventilation

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:11:03

And we could fill the tophat with ice packs if it gets really hot

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:11:25

it would look stylish and be utilitarian and breathable

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:13:58

That would also be super expensive I'm guessing.

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:14:17
tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:14:34

we could get them custom made very cheaply in seattle

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:17:58

I remember there being a few tailors there

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:19:04

If we invested some time in researching local couturiers in our area we could surely find somebody who could accommodate our needs

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:19:26

But with top hats? Unless you go to party city or something and get plastic ones (which probably won't last very long), that's gonna be expensive. Also the trench coats and those would be cool but kind of cumbersome. Also I think people would overheat. But I think we also need to remember this is for the drive team, not the entire team. And we might not even do that.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:19:38

Weโ€™ll look into it, thanks for the input Tom

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:21:35

charlotte if you scrolled up a bit you would see that I remediated that

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:23:56

I suggested the trench coats because they have more pockets and sturdier fabric than a disposable labcoat

jack (jack@phroa.net)
2016-11-17 19:27:18

how about a non-disposable lab coat?

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 19:28:49

that would work extremely well

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:35:36

All this stuff is for just the drive team, if at all. Mechanics aside from them wonโ€™t have to work with it.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:35:49

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

They almost always are. And they do on field repairs if necessary, which is why your point is so valid

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)

If you could fold down the top part and use it as pants with a tshirt it would work well

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:43:21

speaking from (limited) experience you don't want more than a t-shirt for drive team

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:43:47

What about jumpsuits (since that seems like the direction the marketing team is moving)?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:43:53

Would they help or hinder?

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:44:01

as long as you can pull it down without it interfering

alex_lf (al3xlf@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 20:44:38

on the other hand you don't need to keep track of a jacket

kaedric_holt (kaedholt@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 21:10:59

I think the jumpsuits would do fine, but think about the kind of old, brown looking overalls boiler mechanics used to wear.

kaedric_holt (kaedholt@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 21:11:50

Practically jumpsuits anyway

More important topic: Sponsors - update from BIll and success today, adding to Rose's report -

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 21:16:06

A little more explanation on the "fedex"visit...if you don't mind. Rose...:-)

Joe at Sound Repro WILL provide us with 100 11 X 17 brochures with our design in exchange for a place on the t-shirt. He will also charge us COST for the t-shirts (all cotton, and no polos; can't do logos on the polos) and will give us his estimate. This marketing group of Rose, Marie, and Charlotte was ACES and the potential sponsors were very, very positive! 3 Cheers! And one kind fellow (Tom) at Bainbridge Bakers pulled a fiver out of his wallet and said "here"! All good stuff!

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-17 21:16:36

I also want to add this: A little more info here on assessing the value of the Sponsorship by SoundRepo.

The folder shown last night was a 8.5 x 11 full color tri-fold - 6 pages - without a pocket.

I did fresh pricing and 100 Copies with our best printer for a tri-fold is $405; 250 copies is $555 - all in (tax + shipping), two weeks from order to receive.

What is now proposed from SoundRepo is a four page, 8.5 11 brochure - folded. At PSPrinting, the cost for this brochure is $173 total - including tax and shipping.

SoundRepo right now is near the Supporting Level ($250 min) - name on shirt instead of logo.

T-Shirts at Custom Ink $13, so if SoundRepro saves us shirts at under $10 each total, we would move them to the Silver level ($500 min).

Remember, we need to have at least $500 to get a logo on the team shirt per benefits.

Great news all around.

We do need T-shirt samples before we order as we know what the Custom Ink color and style is.

"Proceeds go to supporting robotics" ??? is that bad or should we not have it focus so much on ourselves.

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:27:02

thats pretty lit

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:27:23

but I think we should plaster memes all over the school with hidden qr codes in them

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:27:34

and make it like a big scavenger hunt

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:27:54

@rose_bandrowski that's good, I like that

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:28:02

where you have to go around school with your phone and decipher where the party is by putting together the text from the qr codes

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:28:16

that would be flaming lit yo

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:28:38

I can make qr codes btw

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:29:05

in this way only the dankest meme lords will get to be served pizza by us

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-19 15:29:38

Tom we want everyone to come

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-19 15:29:42

Not just some people

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:30:04

maybe we could do that for something else then

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:30:41

Not to mention a portion of the school is not a fan of memes. They would disregard it

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:31:00

The flyer goes up all over town AND at the school. Works for everyone

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-11-19 15:31:25

Including myself

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:31:38

good point jon

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:32:34

@chris_mentzer off topic but yeah same if it has white impact font i cringe a little. Especially after that one Wendy's ad...

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:51:58

So from what I've gathered from Kevin and Bill's emails, we're doing a trifold on the brochure correct?

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:52:34

Yes, but it's going to be a build season project. Not enough time now

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:53:04

You guys keep jumping off-topic and keep changing the topic and makes slack very ineffective.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:53:46

The original question asked was about funding descriptionโ€“ It should say BHS robotics or Bainbridge high school robotics - it should not say stem because that's too broad

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:54:32

Works for me

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:54:40

There is no decision on how many folds for the brochure Rose - we need to talk about it and market up before we decide - can't make that decision on Slack

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:55:49

Okay, I'd like to help on the design so when we come around to designing the brochure I'd like to be included on the conversation.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:57:52

So no major fixes thus far to the takeover flyer though, correct?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:58:09

Rose - regarding the Westside poster - nice start! Suggestion: color scheme is not as important as being able to read the text from a distance. make sure you can read the date - since the main draw is pizza - is there a way to incorporate that into the design - even a digital pizza?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 15:59:12

Remember the key message were trying to communicate in the takeover is to get people to eat pizza

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:00:26

It's not about donating money - it's about driving people into the restaurant to eat and that's how will make money.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:00:39

Okay I'll be sure to draw a pizza in there. I really like the background texture, makes it very appealing (to me at least), and I think's important from a design point of view, but marketing we definitely need some sort of west side/pizza. The thing I'm most worried about is clutter.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:00:55

Let's see how this prints out as well you may not love the background when you see how the printer messes it up

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:01:16

Keeping it simple is fine

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:01:17

Gotcha, so maybe, "enjoy dinner at Westside with spartronics?"

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:01:39

No

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:01:43

It's all about the pizza

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:01:48

Pizza is the most popular food in the world

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:01:55

It is the number one food among teenagers

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:00

dinner is at six for most people

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:01

We should use that strength of pizza

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:08

"Endjoy PIZZA at Westside with spartronics?"

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:19

Robots take over Westside was a teaser poster idea, remember?

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:22

good

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:23

you really have two posters to do

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:35

One for the next 10 days

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:40

The teaser poster that your create

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:02:47

Creating

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:03:00

The second one is the drive people to come into the store on December 7

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:03:09

I'm not telling you to change the first up poster

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:03:17

Yeah I remember but I tried to do that and I couldn't come up with a good concept design for the robot because I'm not skilled at drawing robots lol.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:03:19

Correct - first poster

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:03:31

You don't have to have a robot the poster looks good as a tease

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:03:55

The second poster should focus on the food and the date

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:04:20

Okay, I'll try. So this one would be the food and date correct?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:04:35

I don't have to change it to accommodate the "teaser"

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:04:43

I was suggesting trying to incorporate a digital pizza in the background on the first poster

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:04:55

This would be a lot easier to collaborate on if we were doing it in person

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:05:27

Agreed. I suggested another marketing meeting like the one at Jon's a couple weeks ago but I don't know if we need to.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:05:59

Something like this but just white?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:06:03

Really should print out what you've done / I think it's great except for the date as a teaser poster

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:06:26

The image for pizza would be something for the second post

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:06:31

Rose once you have a print ready version I can print them in chees room

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:06:46

How many copies?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:07:03

That's good John the problem is going to be is that laser printers do not always do well with black ink

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:07:18

Chee has color

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:07:19

Only print one copy to see how it looks guys

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:07:31

Color laser does not print black well in most cases

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:07:39

And it runs out of ink because it uses all toners

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:07:59

OK - what would you suggest?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:08:07

Do a test

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:08:14

OK

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:08:15

So just to confirm, The one I made today is fine but I need to add a pizza on it somewhere. And I also need to make a teaser.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:08:29

You guys are putting the cart before

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:08:38

The horse

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:09:06
  1. Let's focus on the first poster
kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:09:26

2 The poster is fine except I cannot read the date from a distance

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:09:32

The blue you're using washes out

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:09:41

Okay I should change the color to white probably.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:09:48

The point I was making you might want to use a different color either yellow or white for the day

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:10:01

Date

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:10:02

Okay, makes sense.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:10:27

I love the poster design I just am very worried about what it will do and printed by a laser color printer

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:10:44

Three years ago we had to scrap a poster that was nearly black -

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:11:04

It also made cheese printer run out of toner because he does not have a black toner in his color laser cartridge โ€“ it uses all colors to print black

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:11:18

Chee's printer

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:11:32

Could we get it printed elsewhere?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:12:09

This is where you need to get creative - money is not always the answers

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:12:17

Answer

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:12:26

Is that an option in the first place though.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:12:32

Color Printing is a dollar a page locally

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:12:44

And how many are we shooting to print out.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:12:50

I believe will need somewhere between 25 and 30 copies eventually

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:13:16

Well then that's probably worth the money, although it may fail just as much as mr.chee's would.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:13:28

Here I'll do a test on my own printer to see the colors.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:13:55

I disagree I don't think it's worth the money- I think you need to create something that will print well / this may still print well - so don't give up

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:15:08

Email a copy of your finished poster want you fix it Rose to Kyanne

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:15:17

She's got a color printer at Blakely that does have a black laser toner in it

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:15:38

Once you fix it

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:15:54

Okay yes, it did printed out fine. The background I loved is completely dark blue and you can barely see the texture, it's definetly dark so I need to make that background lighter but that's an easy fix.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:15:55

(Can you tell I'm dictating verbally - that's all the mistakes)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:16:20

Lol actually no, I just figured you were typing fast.

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:16:38

So you're gonna learn the number one rule in making any poster as an artist: people have to be able to read it from a distance

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:16:51

I showed Kyanne what you created and she could not read the date - but she love the design

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:17:15

Okay, I've changed the date and a few other thing's I'll post a new version.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:19:54
rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:20:27

I still have to emphasize on the pizza but other than that it's mostly fixed.

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:21:17

Only thing is there is no logo...

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:21:55

Oh good point

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:22:20

Apart from that looks baws

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:22:42

Ugh I'm trying to keep it as uncluttered as possible and there's no good space for the logo at least from my eye. Any thoughts? Thanks James.

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:23:23

Behind the "robots take over westside" with opacity low

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:23:27

and if I'm putting a logo on this I'm not drawing a pizza unless it's a background - keep that in mind Kevin

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:23:37

Okay, I'll try that.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:30:34

Eh....

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:31:14

agreed

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:32:18

The only reason why it's kinda eh I think is bc the two yellows seem kinda funny together...

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:32:41

That too but if I make it normal, it takes away from the words

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:32:51

It also looks weird on the bottom area

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:32:53

Exactly

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:33:22

The ONLY thing I thought MIGHT work was if it was hanging off the side a bit which is not favorable but I like it a lot more than any of the other things I tried.

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:33:42

What if we just had it the same opacity is the bottom corner... Then it is like the "nike swoosh' but instead of a shoe it is a flyer

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:33:52

smaller size

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:34:05

I'll try that.

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:34:18

It might look busy tho

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:34:36

ugg then it will not be symmetrical

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:34:44

The proceeds bit overlays it too which is annoying.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:35:01

Although I have to say it's probably the best option.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:35:36

If we have to choose between the two, I'd choose the corner. Neither is a great option. Nor is leaving it off though

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:36:05

Nooo corner

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:36:20

why isnt paper 8.5x15... would make life easier

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:36:22

What if it was on either side of the details

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:36:35

The Spartronics part and date

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:36:44

?

tom_wiggin (twigginthecool@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:37:22

nike swoosh?

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:37:55

logo then "Spartronics 4915" then logo

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:38:14

But the logo would be the size of two lines

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:38:17

That'd have to be really small.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:38:52

No It's way too small.

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:39:37

Ok

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:39:52

What if I put it in the O of robots...

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:40:11

with that font... the o is a square not circle

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:40:22

Yeah You're right

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:40:22

Yeah...

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:40:43

Could replace it entirely

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:40:47

Just one of them

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:41:02

I think that's what they meant

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:41:16

(Except with both)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:41:38

I can make the robots part aligned to the left and put the logo on the right side of it. That would make it uncentered though. I'll try the O thing

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:41:56

the font is a 1:2 ratio while our logo is a 1:1 (in terms of width V height)

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-11-19 16:42:32

you can try it but if feel like it would be strange

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:42:33

Ugh that's so frustrating

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:42:40

I tried yeah not working

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:42:47

It's overlapping other letters

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:43:23

Only works if I make it REALLY small so obviously not a good option.

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:46:37

Or you could oversized it in the background so that it's behind everything and goes off the edges and have it be darker than the current background

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:46:45

Like a really dark navy

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-19 16:47:17

I'll try it (got bored and was trying to fit in the O on spartronics lol)

Charlotte (charlottelf@protonmail.com)

I think the posters look pretty good - nice work! I was wondering about adding a bit of whimsy... maybe a robot head peaking at one of the corners? Clearly not required - just looking for something that will catch the eye of younger kids.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

Sure. I have yesterday's draft, I haven't added the tiny robot and logo yet. Is that okay?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

Question @joncoonan Should we still pursue Pane D'amour to sponsor if Bainbridge Bakers is already a sponsor? Would it violate t-shirt noncompete?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-25 10:11:53

Is Pane d'amour another bakery on the island?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-25 10:12:40

Because we don't like to compete, but we also may not get a sponsorship from Bainbridge bakers because they're changing owners

@chrisrin:

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-25 10:26:00

I'm not sure we're interested because we've been persuading Bainbridge bakers but we're not sure they'll sponsor us anymore. @joncoonan ?

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-11-25 10:26:01

Pane d'amour is a French bakery located at Lynwood Center. They sell other French cooking and baking stuff as well, so I guess they're actually part bakery & part mini French foodie grocery

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-25 10:26:16

Okay

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

Do you have a personal connect with them?

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)

No, I think Ethan's name is on there because we live nearby

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

They said to contact their new owner but by the time it's switched it may be too late.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-25 10:28:42

Just woke up. Bainbridge Bakers is planning on pledging. I would say hold off on pane damour

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-11-25 10:29:34

Supposed to be figured out by 11/17 by @Charlotte @wrdavis1 @marie_sachs. I would hold off until we here from one of them

I think I might leave it just because it seems like a lot of work. If it's bugging anyone else enough to change it, I'll send you the psd.

Thought: For the teaser flyer, what if we did a movie poster style? I'm imagining some poorly photoshopped pictures of the captains and a overdreamatic font saying "Westside takeover, december 10"

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-27 14:51:57

@kevinhawkins (Sorry to bother your game) Really quickly, did we come up with a solution for printing? I believe we talked about Kyanne printing them at a higher quality printer she had access to or using Mr.Chee's printer. Did we finalize it?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-11-27 14:57:45

I like the idea of the teaser but yeah we're getting a bit too close (sorry, I should have gotten it done earlier). Should we call it off? It's going to take a lot of work to put the teaser posters up and then the event ones so close to each other to be honest.

2016-11-28 17:27:16

Printed the flyers today. I want to go around with Luke (already agreed to help) plus one more tomorrow to distribute.

Asb will be discussed at next meeting along with bulletin, newsletter (which Jennifer had written and will be ready to go out wed), media screens social media etc.

Spartan news is being handled. They dropped the ball and thought it was longer away than it was, so they suggested swapping a bit for the video gabe + Lukas are making. That will be done by tomorrow night

So yesterday we went to Lynwood and went to 4 businesses. Only two of the owners were there. Salty dog wash and Pane de Amore were there while Walt's and Islandcool were not. Pane de Amore seemed very interested in doing an in-kind sponsorship by giving us French breads and pastries to feed us in our meetings and Salty Dog Wash said that they would get back to us

Thanks, Ethan. Regarding Pane d'Amore the owner Elliot is definitely very interested in supporting us by providing baked goods - we just need to coordinate with him. He mentioned he could provide loaves of bread for sandwiches at meals during events, pastries for events (e.g. open house), etc. During build season, we could go there at the end of their business day & pick up stuff that didn't sell that day & bring it to the high school. Elliot also has a kid that participated in some level of youth robotics - good chance they'll come to the open house. Allison from Salty Dog Wash was super kind & interested in sponsoring but needed to run it by her co-owner... it seems to me they're still a fairly new business trying to grow a customer base so I expect a small donation if anything.

dropping an idea for the pit here: given Steampunk theme, what if we spelled out Spartronics using blue pipes (might need to paint them) and then back lit the pipes with yellow light, kinda like this (except pipes)... https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Sign+Backlit+Letters&view=detailv2&&id=1D045CF7F6B9A84EF29DA16E74861C896D1580D6&selectedIndex=0&ccid=2omvyoi7&simid=608045406204201813&thid=OIP.Mda89afca88bb16aaed2c3c31eb818ef2H0&ajaxhist=0

The philanthropies part too - this is new this year. Microsoft is significantly upping the energy and resources it is spending on a wide variety of philanthropic pursuits around the world, and along with that they've decided to launch a differentiated brand for Microsoft Philanthropies.

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-12-15 10:59:41

In the context of our T-shirt design, I think you could probably get away with reducing the vertical white space between "Microsoft" and "Philanthropies". I know space is tight, and I'm not sure the logo designers were thinking about the kind of application you're working on.

The three downloadable content packs (http://www.firstinspires.org/2017-frc-teaser) have some great posters & other images, logos, Steampunk fonts, etc. I recommend checking them out, and I think it might be fun to print the posters for the robotics room. If we're thinking of incorporating anything Steampunky on this year's shirt design, the fonts might be something to look at.

What's the status of the logos for the team shirts and banners?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:04:59

deadline was 15th

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-18 14:05:31

I'm working on the shirt, not sure about the banner, I wasn't aware there was a deadline

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:06:56

That's the problem with slack - email on the 15th Kevin Hawkins <kevhawkins@gmail.com> Dec 15 (3 days ago)

to Jonathan, James, Christopher, Enrique, Bill, Chris Hey guys,

Just a reminder on the team shirt: I would like to help finalize these as soon as we can.

I have done the final QC on the logo layout since the very first shirt and would like to offer my guidance to Chris.

I am back in the office after lunch tomorrow.

We also need to order two banners and should to the layout for that at the same time.

(esigns is tough to beat - under $100 each).

Cheers,

Kevin

2016-12-18 14:07:50

Kevin: are we talking deadline for having the logos or for creation of the shirt / banner?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:08:01

BOTH

james (james@slattery.tech)

We started to develop the graphic last team meeting for the t-shirt. Chris has the file and the logos and just needs to add them to the PSD. Then that would be done and we can print the T-Shirts (Not sure how the new t-shirt vendor works exactly) As for the banner I am not sure who is working on that. If we have all the logos once the team shirt is done it would not be hard to build the banner (basically changing file detentions and adding more text)

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:09:22

Reminder: the reason we had a deadline for the sponsors was to get the team shirt order. We need to order to have the before Kickoff. We may have missed that opportunity. Banner would be needed for the LGI if we have parents and sponsors

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:09:43

Banners take 2-3 days

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-12-18 14:10:42

So, if we get the graphics done today. We could have the banners for kickoff, right? @chris_mentzer have you worked on it since the last meeting?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:11:20

That would be great. Again, if help is needed, I am happy to help...

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:12:24

If we could get that done today @chris_mentzer that would be AWESOME since we have never had shirts and banner ready for kickoff when a student has done it

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-12-18 14:14:32

Once T-Shirt graphic is done it will only take like 30 minutes to generate the banner graphic. (Then another 30 to upload to esigns ๐Ÿ˜„ last year file was huge) As for the new t-shirt vendor, how do we define what goes on the sleve, front, back, ect. All chris is working on is the back.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:15:28

Vendor already had the front and sleeve done just needs the back

๐Ÿ‘ james
kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:15:55

First logo on the right sleeve - same as last 2 years. I think we also need to check with Coach to add the WA First logo as a sponsor - or we could also have on the sleeve. Let

I'm actually super busy today and won't be home til late tonight, but I could see when I get home if I can finish it then, if not I will wake up early tomorrow to finish it

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)

's catch Coach after this meeting

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:17:02

I will check with Bill - issue is printers have fewer hours during Holiday season. If we get a final by Monday, that would be great. Banner layout is VERY different than the team shirt, fyi

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:17:33

It might be helpful if I did a quick rough mockup based on the list, but I am gone until tonight after today's meeting.

james (james@slattery.tech)
2016-12-18 14:17:40

Ya but having all the logos on a Photoshop canvas in donation order saves a bunch of time

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)

Chris M - school work comes first!!!

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:18:02

Yes, James, very true.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-18 14:18:25

I have break to do school work so I can do the logos tomorrow morning and get them to you

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:19:47

Don't rush on account of us, get your school stuff done and do the job right - thanks ๐Ÿ‘

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-18 14:21:16

I'll do that as soon as possible, today's the last day I'm super busy as far as I'm aware so I will do that tomorrow probably and get those to Kevin

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:21:40

Put it here so we can get a second set of eyes then send to bill

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)

He is our contact for the vendor

Will do

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:23:21

FYI - Check with Chris R but the logo link for Microsoft in the tracking sheet is wrong - should be Microsoft Philanthropies = Example here http://s3.amazonaws.com/techimpact/wp-content/uploads/20150627194835/Philanthropies_Logo_with_MSFT_gray-1024x371.png

2016-12-18 14:23:41

Don't worry - handled it at the meeting

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:24:03

Bill is the contact for the team shirt - I will work with Coach Chee to order the banners through esigns as we use Chee's account

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:26:13

I see no Microsoft Philanthropy high res logo in Google Drive - only Microsoft. All logos should be eps, ai , svg 300 dpi

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-18 14:26:18

I got the Microsoft philanthropies logo from Chris R. I'm not sure about the banner if that's supposed to be a different format, I was not informed about whether or not I should be making that

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-18 14:26:39

I haven't put it in the google drive yet but I did get it from Chris

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:26:47

Make sure ALL high res logos are in the Google Drive - let's create a new folder - 2017 Sponsor Logos

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:26:52

Banners will need a eps or svg due to how darn big the thing is

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:27:01

We already have a folder

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:27:11

So will team shirts, believe it or not or they will not look good

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:27:24

It's in the marketing drive, right @chris_mentzer?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:27:32

Where?

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:29:37

Reminder: ONLY Silver or above sponsors get a logo - $250 get a name - we will make an exception for T&C as they are legacy and we will use their logo

kevinhawkins (kevhawkins@gmail.com)
2016-12-18 14:30:07

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-18 14:30:28

Yeah, I wasn't sure how much they needed to get a logo so I just got all of them but I will be making sure I only have the right ones

Okay I'll keep it in mind.

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-19 16:52:16

I finished putting all the logos together, I'm pretty sure you wanted it on a white background but if that was wrong it would be an easy fix. Any suggestions on how to make it better would be greatly appreciated!

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-19 16:53:18

Double check that all the yellows are the same - they look a little varied

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-19 16:54:02

Also is there a way to get all the supporters on the bottom row while keeping it balanced?

jack (jack@phroa.net)
2016-12-19 16:58:38

I feel like Dalton Family is too stretched out and Mr. Shutt is too compressed

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-19 16:59:06

Yes - we want them to be as closely sized as possible based on contribution

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-19 16:59:16

Some of the yellows did get messed up, working on those now, I'll also fix Dalton and Shutt

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-19 17:14:39

If I try to get all the supporters on the bottom row there is an empty space next to GE and Pane d'Amore has to stay where it is, it cant fit on the bottom with the rest unless they"re very small. Here's what it would look like

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-19 17:18:21

I could try and move the WAV and GE logos to a more central spot to try and make it look better

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-19 17:19:03
joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-19 17:19:07

Do that so it's symmetrical

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-19 17:19:14

Exactly

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-19 17:19:51

There needs to be a bit more space between all the logos they come very close to overlapping

chris_mentzer (cmentzer@mentzer.org)
2016-12-19 17:30:17

I got some more space between some of the logos

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-12-20 08:14:19

just for the purpose of layout review, would it be possible to change the color to black for higher contrast?

chrisrin (chrisrin@microsoft.com)
2016-12-20 08:25:40

nevermind - zoomed version is readable

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2016-12-20 08:41:23

I think GE healthcare could be more centered between the top and the bottom but besides that it looks great.

joncoonan (jonathancoonan@gmail.com)
2016-12-20 08:52:55

@chris_mentzer read Kevin's email - shift focus from the shirt to sponsor banner to get it done TODAY - also remember that donation determines size, all the logos are equally sized in your current mockup. This applies to the banner as well

I think I should be fine, I found the .psd file from last years banner so I can work with that

Arrrgghhhh! I can't hit return without starting a new message (Slack and I not so much...). I spoke with Sheron at Fairbank this morning. They DO have a conference room and video equipment. They sent the check to Mr. Chee yesterday. That was an error BUT the "money is in the bank". Good on that! 2) What time and where do we meet tomorrow and who's coming? I would like all of us to meet at T & C as close to 3:30 as possible. We will review quickly and then drive (or walk fast) to Fairbank. I would like at least 5 of us to present. Jon, Rose, Charlotte, Luc, and Marie? Everyone is welcome but you folks are essential. Next topic...

[12:27]
arrrgghhh.....Topic 2) T-Shirts...Where are we on design? WHEN do we need to have the t-shirts? Actual date, please. Joe Cardosi and I met at Sound Repro this morning and he needs design ASAP! Their will be a white back-drop beneath the yellow BTW. He has the design for the front and the side emblem. All we need to do is construct the list of our sponsors, correct? And how many sweatshirts do we need to order?

Hey #marketing

Here's something from FIRST WA.

Calling all FIRST Washington Teams! Join us Monday, January 16th, 8 a.m.-1 pm., FIRST Day in Olympia.

In partnership with our Skunkworks team, FIRST Washington is hosting its 2nd FIRST Day in Olympia to thank state lawmakers for their support for FIRST teams and to ask for renewed support this biennium. It will be a super fun and action packed morning and great experience for students. To learn more about this day, check out this video: https://youtu.be/8FolD2UU1uU

So far we have 29 FIRST Washington teams signed up to participate, and it would be fantastic to have more teams join us โ€“ from all across the state. There are Western Washington teams that have offered to host Central and Eastern Washington teams for a place to stay if needed. It is not necessary to have your entire team present, just 3-4 team members and a mentor.

In addition to a rally from 8:30 a.m.-9:00 a.m. in which Governor Inslee will be joining us, teams will be meeting with their respective state lawmakers. We will provide some suggested speaking points but what is most important is to share your teams experience and what students are learning by participating on a FIRST team.

Maybe something for Charlotte to think about because she has the camera but let's try and do an actual robot reveal this year. I'm watching a few and honestly this seriously overdramatized style is fun and hilarious (I also find it cool but I'm weird that way). I'd be willing to do the video editing if no one else would.

Lots of opportunities here, but if we want to do it make sure you talk soon because you'll want to start getting some good videos of us making it to start the video probably.

I don't think we ever finish the robot in enough time to make one.

Most of those videos are showing the process anyway.

I see the potential especially if we do a gear bot

Same. Also our robot reveal we did a couple years ago was funny but eh poorly executed.

Maybe it could give us an idea of how much material we could potentially get.
