pushkarthakurSend pushkarthakur a message :   the rock scenes pretty big but its still an undercurrent like i mentioned elsewhere, i was working for this mag called the rock street journal and their readership is approx. 1,60,000 readers (2001 figures) and they have approx 48,000 subscriptions....theres a gig every thursday (im talking only about delhi) which is packed with 300+ people and friday nights is the same story...its huge in the college circuit with annual rock fests etc and a whole load of competitions, and now bands are going to places like estonia for the sun dance festival et all...check out www.rsjonline.com for a clearer picture....and this competition/concert Great Indian Rock, well 12 bands get selected out of entries by approx. 300-400 bands with original compositions, and whoever wins after the 2 day event gets to fly to the states on a tour..or like this year they went to europe, 2001, band called Bombay Black opened for Aerosmith so the scene is yea pretty big, but its yet to get a lot of support from other forms of media   2004-12-13 16:09:08

pushkarthakurSend pushkarthakur a message :   thanks for the suggestions people, keep 'em coming, a few words in reply to why its so busy, point noted and case closed, that was the whole point of the poster, it was the 8th year of the concert and 8 is the "worm hold thing" in the center, nothing was supposed to be given focus and the sponsors Levis strauss were cool with it, (didnt work with the sub co sponsors though :( )...the poster had to have a very noticeable look, a psychedelic, lots is happeneing, people spend time looking at it kinda poster, something that would go up in rooms after the concert was over, something thatll definitely be remembered, something thats cool, funky, catchy, different, and carried the attitude of the magazine that holds the event forward ,The Rock Street Journal...and as for the bands and their location on their poster, well its a annual competition/concert, 12 bands get selected to play out of the 400 bands from india and thus the poster mentions the bands playing and where they hail from, also in india there is not too much of the recognition factor existing for the bands, rock is still an undercurrent in a country of billions, theres a strong rock community no doubt but its still growing....hope you all like the poster, we enjoyed it a lot in india, it worked as a campaign, pulled in the crowds like crazy, we estimated 4000 over two days and it was 7000+ each day, madness...just like the poster...a touch of everything, rock is not an indian concept to begin with and thus the poster has a western touch but it also has its indian touch...hey the designers indian, that would be me...me stop, u comment   2004-12-12 07:10:52
scrojoSend scrojo a message :   pushkar* alot of interesting things going on but....... there is no focus/focal point. the eye zig-zags all over ( and, ironically, the last thing you can make out is the 'levi great indian rock' which, if they paid you, should be they main focal point.
you have alot of potential my friend but i think you are falling into the 'photoshop filter more-means-better-art ' ........sorry. it doesn't. just the opposite. find your focus. keep it simple. do what you kno and have fun with it. simple poster making rule 101.

KJSend KJ a message :   holy shit a gigposter from india! there is so much amazing signage and graphics in india... so much to draw on. i think the "busy-ness" is totally appropriate... i could not IMAGINE a minimalist indian poster. submitting the band locations isnt needed, but still kind of cool... but then that info is also on the poster... heh. surprised that this looks SO western tho... my advice is to draw on all that amazing indian signage and stuff.... keep some regional identity...... woot woooot!   2004-12-11 15:33:15
UnitusSend Unitus a message :   you also don't need to submit the band names with where they're from.   2004-12-11 09:48:21

jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   i agree...can be hard to have lots of info...but its complicated here by adding even more confusion with all of the colors...reduse, reuse, recycle.   2004-12-11 09:42:21
Eubanks09Send Eubanks09 a message :   This is too busy... especially the worm hold thing you've placed front and center.   2004-12-11 09:40:35
