On why the poster design isn't prettier: This is because it's designed to make people buy things, not simply to look good. These are not necessarily the same thing, and a lot of thought has gone into the designs. I don't know what you mean by not getting straight to the point: There is the lead-in bit to grab attention at the top, what it is in the middle, and how to buy at the bottom. Explaining to the layman what RISC OS / A9 is and why they should buy it could turn into an essay if put literally, so I can't put all that on a poster, but I would like suggestions on what they think "straight to the point" should mean. I have avoided Mb/MHz direct comparisons, as they are meaningless across processor families, and concentrated on what it can do where the PC etc is weak (ie, everything apart from internet use).

The contrast on the posters is sufficient when you look at the posters in real life. It doesn't show up properly in the photos for some reason, but then neither does the Currys.Digital sign, which is also very clear IRL.

If anyone would like to suggest alternative poster designs, I shall certainly consider them or elements of them for future use.
