As you can see from the original design here - http://www.mcgmemories.com.au/certi…000024.jpg - the original certificate is very plain and boring.
What I need is for you to redesign this A5 (5.8 × 8.3) certificate so it is more appealing, so the owner wants to proudly hang it in their home or office.
The wording for the certificate is:
THE MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND
Since Governor La Trobe granted its present site in 1853 the Melbourne Cricket Ground has grown into Australia’s most recognisable stadium and sporting soul. The ‘G’ has been the home of Australian Rules football since its inaugural match between Melbourne Football Club and South Yarra on July 12, 1859. The home of the Melbourne Cricket Club saw its first test match between Australia and England in 1877.
The ground has hosted some of the greatest sporting spectacles, with the largest crowd for a ‘footy game’ being 121,696 during the 1970 grand final between Carlton and Collingwood. The record for a test match was set in 1961 when Australia faced the West Indies. However, the all-time attendance record of 130,000 plus was set in 1959 for an event held by religious leader Billy Graham.
This limited, unique and authenticated piece of the Ponsford Stand keeps alive the memory of the history and excitement of the ‘G’. W.H. (Bill) Ponsford was one of Australia’s and Victoria’s greatest cricketers and you are holding a piece of the stand that bore his name.
