    Here is one of our latest jobs.
    It's a Red Hot Chili Peppers shadow box with hand written notes and letters about Hillel Slovak, the former lead guitar player and founding band member. Hillel died in 1988.

    The notes are written by band members and by his brother.
    The notes were floated as is and the side panels were created by taking band photos provided by the customer and they were reprinted using a red filter.
    The photos were cut apart and then applied to the side panels.
    The glass has not been installed yet and the parts were just put together for the pictures.

    My boss came up with the design.
    He's left handed and many of his creative designs come from the "other side" of the brain.;)

    Very cool treatment for that. I hope you charged enough, and didn't just "give it away now".
    :rolleyes: Rick

    Great design.
    Are the side panels slanted?
    One small observation. Backing is slightly visible around edges of notes. Could you have used a red colored (Archival) board as backing to minimize?

    The sides are not slanted, they just look that way in the picture.

    Actually, the box was not completely finished at that point and the notes were just set on the Fom Cor risers to take the picture.
    The notes were hinged to 2 ply rag backs cut to almost the outside of each note in the finished project.
    The white 2 ply backing makes the printing stand out more than a colored back would.
    If we used red behind the notes, the red would have tinted the notes red (or pink).
    Also, when the photo was taken, it was face up on the table with the overhead lights shining right down on it.
