Originally, we were going to run some photo taken by some photographer of some guy noone knew...blah blah blah. Running on the two themes I was given: "aids ribbon, death", I came up with the idea of the aids ribbon as a funerary wreath on a moody cemetery background. Much like below:
However, that was not quite doing it for them ( and I now agree, however I will be using this idea for an upcoming enome project.
So that all said, the actual ribbon created out of roses worked well enough. Once applied to a new design, I think, works very well.
