i think this poster is a success because the halftones trick you into thinking there's a hidden picture or something, so it pulls you in and makes you study it longer than your average poster. color choice is on point, too.
What I like most about this, is that at some point you decided "yeah, let's go with the dots..." Makes a really good-looking and interesting poster. See how everyone wants to figure out what the dots mean...!? (It's a slow lorus, right?)
I really want to read something into this one I keep looking at it hoping that I see something..... it kind of looks like the famous photo of bigfoot walking in the forest.... does anyone else see that?
does this work for the bands style of music? I'm sure it looks really cool in person but this is one of those posters that would piss me off if I was a band that had commissioned work. But maybe it works for them, in which case, bravo.
If there is indeed a poster universe, this is on the opposite end from a promo band photo with stretched Impact on it.
So has anyone heard? Was The Gossip offended by this blatant racist imagery or what?
