The University of Texas McCombs School gets a Facelift

by Canvas Press | March 11, 2009

Canvas Press recently completed a 53 piece order for The McCombs School of Business MBA Program Office at The University of Texas at Austin. The prints ranged in size from 16"x12" to 63"x48" and revolved around 6 themes.

  • On-Campus Architecture Austin-based photographer Blake Justice chose Gallery Wrapped - Colored Border canvases to display his staircase, door and hardware images. He achieved a matted look for his prints by leaving extra white space on the front of the prints. The black border on the canvas sides complemented the thin black outline framing each of his photos.

  • Iconic Austin Landmarks 6th Street, Austin City Limits, the downtown skyline, the Katz's Deli Cadillac, the Lone Star bus at the Broken Spoke, and Fran of Fran's Hamburgers are a few subjects displayed in this series. It seems there is never a shortage of quirky subjects on the streets of this capital city.

  • Texas Wildlife Landscapes across Texas and, yes, lots of cacti. Ouch!
  • Students' School-related International Travel Students travel to the Great Wall, Chile, Delhi, the Kremlin and Athens through McCombs School classes.

A local courier delivered this large order to the home of the longhorns and installation was done with the aid of a professional framer. Security hangers were used for several of these prints. These hangers are useful for heavily trafficked spaces such as schools and hotels. Security hangers are available upon request.

While I personally bleed burnt orange, as a company we do not discriminate amongst institutions of higher learning and would love to help your school fill its empty walls.

Tips-n-Tricks #88

Try not to cut off your subject's feet or hands. Instead try composing the shot with either their entire body in the photo or zoom in to crop at the knees or waist. You can also crop at the elbow or mid bicep. When you just crop off feet or hands, it just looks a little odd.
