HacNYC Lambda-themed Posters for The 1st NYC Haskell Hackathon

Filed under: community

Several months ago, I heard about Hac Phi, and how amazing the experience was. I asked if there was a local hackathon to NYC. The answer was “No, but there should be one.” In response, I replied, “How can we make it happen?” I pestered queried the NY Haskell Hackathon organizers and they provided many tips - such as finding space and announcing the event. As the first ever such event in this area, it was important to get the word out about its existence.

Now that there less than a month until Hac_NYC! Recently created some promotional materials to help spread the word.

These banners were made using Adobe Illustrator and the official Haskell Logo. I imported the .svg logo file into Illustrator, modified it’s size and colors. Then dragged it to the swatches to create a pattern. The screenshot below shows how you can further modify the pattern to create the metal effect.

Here’s another banner, inspired by the examples found on the Type Design Information Site.
