HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Philaarts- I think this flyer evokes the feeling it was supposed to, I get a sense of quirkiness, and arty coffee-house-ness from it, so in that respect it works well as an ad. However stuck up on a wall in said coffeehouse i'm sure it would be lost in a sea of ads for spiritual enlightment, and dodgy new age world music cd's. Seen in the context of gigposters however it does stand out more than most just by virtue of its approach and how different it looks compared to the standard here.   2003-02-07 13:56:22

ToothSend Tooth a message :   I'm not advocating that every poster should look like this but(wait let me think about that for a minute...)I just meant to commend its urgency and its possibly(?)unconcious brilliance.
I like that this site has things we don't necessarily "get". Balance is good.

Agreed. Precisely what I have tried to convey in the past when posters were being ripped. Everyone likes different stuff.
I just looked at her web site and I must admit that this sort of "art" does nothing for me personally. To each his/her own.

perkinsSend perkins a message :   appears to be for a film...maybe different criteria apply. Now the question: is it a gig poster?   2003-02-07 09:52:02

perkinsSend perkins a message :   ...but it did get your attention! Reminds me of something, what is it? No Doubt? I can't place it.
Spontaneity = good Brown & black = good Calling it shit = bad Misspelling "extraordinary" = bad

Cody PomeroySend Cody Pomeroy a message :   "fuck cody u seem offended that people might have diffrent taste than u", that's not it. Difference of opinion is healthy and I respect that. All I can tell you is how I see it. To me it's shit but one man's junk is another man's treasure. Hynes, I can see your point about the whole urgency aspect of this, maybe the designer had this in mind when he/she made this, however I think the point of a poster is to get attention, and this wouldn't get mine. Matter of opinion.   2003-02-07 08:53:15
seripopSend seripop a message :   i like it cause it LOOKS how some of the best punkrock SOUNDS it's fast, urgent, messy, in yr face and 100% homemade i can understand why some folks might not like it but i really don't think anyone should have to justify personal taste   2003-02-07 08:48:42
JGexSend JGex a message :   Cody, it's OK.... :o)
Though the lettering is nice, I don't find anything in this that holds my interest longer than just a glance.
Just a matter of differing tastes.

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Cody, I don't think this poster is all that 'great', but you and TOOTH both made some good points on why it struck me as it did. First off, it does look like "something somebody stuck under the windshield of a parked car after smacking into it" It looks URGENT, it looks like it has an important message to tell (it's kind of coffee-house crap, but that's beside the point) Also, it has an air of naivete and lack of thought that is extremely hard to pull-off or fake. As tooth put it "sometimes an "untrained" hand will do things a "servant" hand would avoid like a whip", It's hard to tell how 'trained" this hand is as this is their only poster and the web link doesn't work, but it does display some form of design sense with the scaling of letters, capitalisation of some and the filling in of others. My point is it would be extremely hard to replicate something like this with as much urgency and non-pretension as this poster has, It would come across as contrived. I like this because it feels PURE, and the approach is so different from an ingrained design point of view.   2003-02-06 23:51:03
ToothSend Tooth a message :   As much as I can appreciate a super-crisply-illustrated-19-color metallic-splashed-diecut-dodechahedron-limited edition-hand pulled -screen print, I have to admit I see stuff like this and I get a stumbling visceral boot kick in the eye pan. Its like the seeing the all illuminating bright PUNK light again...(and hand lettering always just gets me all wiggly.) plus sometimes an "untrained" hand will do things a "servant" hand would avoid like a whip...? (or maybe its the drugs...i used to like them.)   2003-02-06 19:26:45
Cody PomeroySend Cody Pomeroy a message :   uhhh...I still don't get it, so I hand write a bunch of crap on a piece of paper and I too can make a great poster? I dunno, not really into this, it's not visual stimulating to me..looks like something somebody stuck under the windshield of a parked car after smacking into it.   2003-02-06 18:48:59
HYNESSend HYNES a message :   It feels uncontrived, its almost completely the opposite approach most people take in designing a gigposter, and I like interesting lettering.   2003-02-06 14:33:49
