dan_castilloSend dan_castillo a message :   yeah, i guess one person has done a poster for the show and two other people are going to. i'm sure there is an admat promoting the show as well.   2008-08-05 16:43:24

JohnSend John a message :   So wait.....THREE people are doing posters for this show?   2008-08-05 16:18:23
Davida_LocaSend Davida_Loca a message :   Sort of disappointing to see a unusual yet awesome image have some "ehhh" type on it. Maybe more perspective on it would've done the trick as someone mentioned below. Great concept none the less!   2008-08-02 20:24:39
RADARSend RADAR a message :   hmmm, i think i am doing this poster. no kidding, super unison (promoter) hired me to do it.   2008-08-02 16:29:16
B-DROIDSend B-DROID a message :   AINT NO RATT POSTER!!!   2008-08-01 10:47:24
dan_castilloSend dan_castillo a message :   i am starting to see that this happens a lot with some of the bigger shows and venues. is this the norm? i've been to a few shows where it looked like an artschool project was to set up. examples would be the cramps at numbers in 03 and the dirtbombs at rudz earlier this year.   2008-08-01 09:45:26
DWITTSend DWITT a message :   Far out. I've been hired by Live Nation to do a poster for this same show.   2008-08-01 09:06:04
ImJustRickGSend ImJustRickG a message :   This right here is how Comments are supposed to work! Wow... Dan, you got some advice from some major poster people. That's pretty cool.
And look! Paul Gardner is nowhere in sight!

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   Well, I guess there ARE a number of posters that have been commented on to say how sucky they are, but I think those are the extraordinarily bad ones. Most of the bland, mediocre shit just goes under the radar. Or someone will say something funny/provocative and all vomment fury is unleashed.   2008-08-01 08:22:34
TenebriniSend Tenebrini a message :   for real... take a look any of the early posters by people who have been doing this for a long time. People come a long way the more they work at it. Look at jarred Connors first poster compared to what he's doing now: http://www.gigposters.com/designerposters/2874/169_Jared_Connor.html   2008-08-01 08:22:20
john seaburySend john seabury a message :   Your logic is flawed. Not knocking the poster, though.   2008-08-01 08:20:31
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   Yeah man, if your shit sucked, they're would be zero comments. The fact that people take the time to critique you means that you're doing something right.   2008-08-01 08:17:08
JustinHeltonSend JustinHelton a message :   Naw man keep it up....you've got some great feedback here. Just listen and learn, thats how you grow as an artist. Keep it up!   2008-08-01 08:11:53
phoondaddySend phoondaddy a message :   You're on the right track. Great advice in these comments. This is still a solid gigposter.   2008-08-01 06:39:44
dan_castilloSend dan_castillo a message :   these are for the venue, which most of my work tend to be. i'm am currently making a consciencious effort to get my work to the next level. i've grown sick of filling a need, but not being 100% happy with the outcome of the work.   2008-08-01 01:58:42
JustinHeltonSend JustinHelton a message :   are these for the band or venue?   2008-07-31 21:26:17
uglybogusSend uglybogus a message :   So, its not going to print for more than a month, and with a couple quick fixes it coulod be a decent poster...but your not going to do it?   2008-07-31 21:18:42
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Some perspective on the text would have been cool as well.   2008-07-31 20:47:19
dan_castilloSend dan_castillo a message :   the source image had a name and number still on there, so i kind of used that as a go by. and i realize now that i should of spent a bit more time with getting the perspective of the type correct, even if it did shadow what was in the original image. i didn't think it was that obvious, but i do accept that it was a bit flawed.
thanks so much for the crit. when these go to print later next month, i will definately take many of these notes into consideration.

ferg2001Send ferg2001 a message :   should have used blippo bold   2008-07-31 19:01:53
ROTATORSend ROTATOR a message :   again -great image. could have placed it even a little more off center or to a corner. the type face is fine -- a little blur with the same half tone treatment as image, skew a bit for perspective and its gold.   2008-07-31 17:21:47
VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   Yeah, the text hurts this.   2008-07-31 17:13:50
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   dan -
however, that's not exactly what the type on phone labels looked like. you need to go find some old phones and see for yourself. it would have worked great if you had studied how that typewriter lettering was actually used and what it actually looked like.
this really doesn't doesn't at all look like a telephone label. i can see what you were trying to do. but, i can also see where it doesn't work.

dan_castilloSend dan_castillo a message :   i wanted to keep with how names and numbers were labeled on old rotary phones, but admit that i was aware that i was taking a huge risk by treating the type this way. glad to hear that the image caught some attention.   2008-07-31 14:58:27
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I'ma have to agree.   2008-07-31 13:57:43
perkinsSend perkins a message :   Oh man. This is a great image, and no offense, but I think you blew it with the type.   2008-07-31 13:56:34
