Who knew Google Sketchup could be used to create banners. Actually I made my Logo from a picture of my Duck Jewelery Box and added the graphics on top. I rendered the model using IDX then did some photo editing using Gimp. It worked out fairly well so I decided to give it a try to make a model from scratch for a new Store Banner. I wanted something a bit more classy. So I made up the 3D model and repeated the rendering and photo editing process. I was surprised how nice it came out. It has the look of a finely carved wooden sign. The perfect look I was after.
