Art & Design
This project is a personal project; basically I want to create a template to show the ancestry of family members, their parents, grandparents, great grand parents and great great grandparents, with a small profile + photo of each ancestor
What's your vision?
I would like a Photoshop In-design (or other Adobe product ; I have the Adobe Master collection) template for an A0 poster of a family tree (actually a poster of ancestors). Please confirm what Adobe product you are proposing (and why). TITLE OF THE CHART: "Ancestry Chart" or something similar We are looking for an ancestry table, which essentially should show you.: - space for 1-5 people (brothers/sisters) at the beginning of the table (these people are the subject of this table) - they link to their father and mother - father and mother link to the grandparents - the grandparents link to the great grandparents - and so on. WE ARE LOOKING TO SHOW 5 GENERATIONS OF A FAMILY. We do not need the specific naming details in the table (please use filler names) - but it needs to show their position in the line of ancestry. Please see the attached graphic (Waldburg_Ahne...) for an example of structure. We do not want this style - but the STRUCTURE makes the task clear. STYLE NOTES: • We are looking for a modern and innovative layout. • This is primarily for Children (aged 2 - 10); so a fun/kids theme would be great • The Waldburg_Ahne is an example of an Ancestory chart - please do not use this for style. • We'd like this decorated; something that turns a mundane ancestry chart into a 'work of art' that the subjects (my kids/nephews/nieces) could hang on their wall once we print it out in A0 (or A1) and foam mount. • We would like this in colour; but some of the photos will be black and white. Some photos will not be available, so we need a default 'silhouette' of a male and one for a female where photos are not available. INFORMATION TO DISPLAY FOR EACH PERSON/ ANCESTOR: - a place for a photo (square), - 2-4 lines for their name (some people have first name-surname, some have first-name, 2 middle names and surname), - birth date & birth place (town, country or town, state/region, country) - Each person should be labelled as 'grandparent', 'great-grand parent' or 'father' etc SIZING NOTES: • Poster will be done on A0 paper. • Poster could be Portrait or Landscape - this is up to you. • The great-great grandparents can have smaller photos than the subject(s) or their descendants . Great Grandparents can have a smaller photo than grand parents etc. If necessary; not a requirement - but it may assist with layout. IMPORTANT NOTES: I'm after a template that I can reuse a number of times. i.e. something I can drop photos into the right place, and click to edit text boxes appropriately laid out with default text. Ideally each Person in the chart would be: - saved in individual cluster - I can remove their photo and update their text - their layout would stay the same but I can duplicate and move as I please. At the end of the project, I would like to be advised as to how to get the best high res PDF settings or other appropriate format for professional A0 printing - as I will be editing this with the names etc. once delivered.
Please let me know any questions and I'm happy to clarify. NOTE 1 : The poster doesn't need to be a 'tree' or 'top down'; i.e. it doesnt need to be oldest people/generation at the top with youngest at the bottom. Perhaps think about how you could layout the poster without that constraint. NOTE 2 : You don't need to have all generations on one line. It doesn't need to be a 'tree' shape .. For example it could be a 'butterfly' shape, with mothers ancestors to the left of the poster and fathers ancestors to the right. See the sample image Ancestry_Chart_Layout_Idea.jpg. Something like this, but well decorated and a nice theme/design might work best. NOTE 3 : I'd like it optimised for 2-3 children; dont worry about trying to fit 5 on; it would be nice to be able to fit 5, but I'm more concerned with 2-3 children subjects.
