strawberrylunaSend strawberryluna a message :   weird, i just saw this and fell in love instantly. and, more so, the band's name type is a huge part of that. i think it's beautiful and offers no problems for me with the rest of the layout, design, illustration, art, mcdoodle, whatever you wish to call it. this is fucking rad. pure hand beautiful.   2008-10-08 08:31:00
iamprogrammableSend iamprogrammable a message :   wow! i have an actual weekend and this is what happens!? Thanks for the kind comments chloe, gina, danimal, zach, grzeca, etcezca Paul. you are spot on about the type. I wish it was more better too. It was a timing thing. I spent too long on the image and didn't leave enough time for the text so i had to slap it on to get it done. While I was going for sort of a "folky" early russian kind of thing...i think the type could have been placed and excecuted a lot better. yup, and as Paul said, that would have really sent this poster in a more awesome direction. I have a habit of starting to print the poster before the design is nailed down.....this has its ups and downs. okay!   2008-09-22 08:26:29

WarmSend Warm a message :   Doh. Weathermaker put it better. My favorite "sun room" poster in a while though.   2008-09-20 15:19:09
WarmSend Warm a message :   When you see something that doesn't fit your particular definition of what "works," don't write it it off. Especially if it was done by an artist you respect. Be open. Get out of your own head. Seems like folks that are really good at this art/design stuff have pretty wide and far-reaching definitions when it comes to what works.   2008-09-20 15:16:55
weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   not to make all this a long argument or anything, but you can definitely sense intention vs accident. the best thing about that type that shows it's not slapped on is its relationship to the space it's in. the text floats between the bottom and top books in the stack. placing the text there added a certain depth to the image that was only supposed before it was there...
rules make things look boring, rob personality and relatability from an image. it's someone whose eye is sophisticated, not amateurish, who can make images in those terms, even if the translation isn't the kind of image you are expecting to see.
you are mistaking sophisticated for amateur because you aren't comfortable looking at it, so you want it to change.

seriplopSend seriplop a message :   i feel very strongly about their work because they achieve what yannick and i are struggling too.
see also : bongout , mat daly , jelle crama, ron liberti. all pretty different aesthetically , yet all manage to transcend illustration and design and make ART with a capital "A" .Work that is not only shockingly original in it's content but also it how it embraces and toys with the medium of screenprinting and with layout.
these people are my heros.

weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   yeah...that's true, nick and nadine do that. i'm glad you put it that way...   2008-09-20 14:27:40
seriplopSend seriplop a message :   i just think you totally miss the point on nick and nadine's work , their audience and how it relates to the bands they work with.
these guys are total professionals , very at home with their VERY original aesthetic. there is nothing amateur about it. sonnenzimmer are one of the few studio out there imo , that make contemporary art out of design.

weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   dude....the mattoid is on this bill. holy crap. i have an old mattoid album. it's a cover album from some sorta drunk ogre. he covers dancing queen and it makes me feel funny inside.   2008-09-20 14:22:41

weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   ps is this nadine? or is it nick? or did you collab?   2008-09-20 13:32:05
weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   i think there is a big difference between amateur and skilled, that's all. nothing here is unconscious or an accident, that's why it's really well done.
On top of it, it's totally great for the band.
balance and sleekness are sometimes overrated, and this expresses more than it would have if it had a sleekness to it. of course, this is just my opinion.

weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   nothing is amateur about this poster. it is very refined as is.
dnml, you are spot on.

DNMLSend DNML a message :   i think that the crooked lettering really works with how all the books are on the bias. I get this sort of turning motion from the whole composition. the letters push up, and the books turn counter-clockwise until you get to the top, where there are these really thoughtfull, and poignant illustrations. ..and then the books just slightly turn out of frame. this thing is ..just REALLY REALLY well done. and if some of this stuff happened on accident, well, that makes it even better.   2008-09-20 10:56:33
