What's your vision?
The ONLY WORDS ON THE SIGN should be the title: FARGO: Behind the Glitz and Glamour. I want to put the “Fargo” in the circle frames where the “Welcome” currently is. And hopefully make the circles bigger since it is part of the sign. Add the yellow tube neon into the word fargo like the “welcome”. Keep it realistic looking. Include the dark circles where the neon generates from, like in the tips of the “E”. MOVE the “Behind the Glitz and Glamour” to the main part of the sign where the “Fargo” currently is. Also add yellow neon to these letters. This can be in Cursive font if you like. ALSO, add some rust and aging to the Main part of the sign, in the same way the “Welcome” has some rust developing. Once the Sign is rebuilt, I've included other backgrounds comp photos to place the sign in. Please give those a try. Doesn't have to be great for now, I just want to look. Once I decide on a background we can make it look more realistic. I need a cover design and then some simple text would need to be layed out into the Paperback and Hardcover templates. I would like to see my original idea accomplished, but once that is done by someone...others may feel free to amend, or start from scratch if they feel their concept is stronger. In the text files you can read the summary to get a sense of the book. COVER TEXT IS IN WORD DOCUMENT
