Layout for A bannerBanners consisted of a display of large banners hung across the site containing thoughts largely based upon the experience of working at the Blackie. In short Blackie Sayings.

The Banners were created specially for the event.  As can be seen from the picture on the left this was done by laying out the words to see how they looked - normally trying several layouts before deciding what would work in the space. The layout was then transferred to the yellow material used for the banners and the words were then painted on with red paint.
