Thank you to everyone who took our survey, commented, e-mailed and facebooked (is that really a verb now?) your thoughts, ideas and opinions on the images I posted last week. Your input made our choice much more simple and clear.
At final count, the church image was favorite at 33 percent, followed by the shadows in the desert preferred by 27 percent of you. The thought was the church is perfect for an art-y beautiful image as a postcard, but the desert shadows fit better for Burning Man.
The popcorn shot Lila took in France was also a favorite, but consensus seemed to say it would be perfect for the What Lila Sees part of the website, but maybe not something we should use to represent us as a whole.
Many of you also suggested a split run.
We basically agreed with all the above and will do exactly as suggested. We won't do them all at once but will work toward three separate cards. One smaller one for Burning Man and then a split run of postcard size cards, one for What Lila Sees, the other to represent The Future Is Red as a whole.
So far, we've designed the Burning man one. It's playing card size, double-sided and printed on a glossy thick paper stock. Tomorrow, we see proof.
Since so many of you had a hand the creation of this card, we though perhaps you'd like a first look at it too. A bit blurry in it's online incarnation, but here it is, front and back:
