Billboard design quality

asked Sep 20, 2013 in Graphic Design by TheRock (920 points)
I want to design a 3m X 1.70m (9 feet X 5 feet) billboard and I am not sure as to what dpi and resolution would be suitable for such a big printed design. Can anyone please tell me what do you think would be the suitable resolution and dpi for this size?
Thank you for your time :-)

I think the mote suitable and best for your case would be using vector graphics.( . vector images can be resized to however big you want it to be without loosing your quality and resolution. You can use Inkscape. It’s a free program that lets you draw in vector. You can also use Adobe illustrator to draw your image.
