Steve HSend Steve H a message :   yea man,i wasnt disagreeing with ya i was backing u up;)   2002-01-12 07:32:53
lureSend lure a message :   i didn't say it had to "leap." i said "if you can get the band's name in there and it's legible."
so we're in agreement.

Steve HSend Steve H a message :   to be honest i dont think it matters wether or not the bands name leaps out at you,obviously that helps but the image is just as important at the lettering,this poster would make me look at it cos its an interesting and unusual piece of work,then i'd see that it was a gig poster and think,yea good idea....   2002-01-12 07:28:47
lureSend lure a message :   see, i told ya some would argue that the band name wasn't big enough.   2002-01-12 07:22:01
r0ckhardmanSend r0ckhardman a message : this a gigposter or a New Art Movement? I do believe it's the former, in which case, yeah, i see who's playin and i see that i wouldn't see that whilst walkin past....on closer inspection, right... nice image....   2002-01-12 07:10:47
lureSend lure a message :   nerfball6: i don't think there's debate of form vs. function. they are both crucial in this craft and form should follow function. this is commercial art. it needs to communicate. some might argue that the band name isn't big enough, but i don't think this poster fails there at all.   2002-01-12 06:53:23
lureSend lure a message :   i have to disagree with postaluvah here. granted, we all have our own tastes. but i love it when the illlustrator or designer gets away from what's traditionally done for poster art. and when there's a concept behind it, instead of a "big tit" girl (and believe me, you/we get critized for it more than you know).
if you can get the band's name in there and make it legible, the rest will follow. anyone into richard buckner would see his name here, get pulled into the poster to get the rest of the information (when, where, how much).
this work is refreshing.

SpeedSend Speed a message :   Hey, true you guys. I kinda forgot that lots of times I want to make really esoteric stuff, but then I remember that I chose to be a POSTER artist, so part of my responsibility is to promote the show as well as I can. So you've changed my mind somewhat, but as ad design, thiis stuff is perfect. In most forms of print advertising, yer art directors will tell you that the key word of the can often be the smallest, and in commercial advertising, it's considered to crass to blow up the name. That's why I always got in trouble at Saatchi & Saatchi, I kept trying to make toyota ads look like badass posters. Oh well, not like me or any of can afford a gas guzzling 4runner anyway!   2001-11-21 17:28:53
nerfball6Send nerfball6 a message :   Form versus Function, always an interesting debate. There is a topic going on about this very subject started by Philaarts. It's "posters and promotion" and it may be a good place to continue this discussion. My personal thoughts go more along with postahlovah's. Concert posters are still a form of "commercial" art with a definate promote the show. I don't know if this really meets that objective. Even if it IS a great design.   2001-11-21 15:44:52
El Negro Magnifico!Send El Negro Magnifico! a message :   No offense, dude...but Speed is right. A lot of these cats could learn a thing or two from Aesthetic. "Design" is the key word. It's got all the essentials: 1) A focal point(without a doubt) 2) Repetition 3)Direction 4) Contrast ...etc., etc... Plain and simple, it's good. Don't get me wrong...I dig scantily clad women like anyone else, but good DESIGN is refreshing.   2001-11-21 14:28:20
postaluvahSend postaluvah a message :   Sorry Speed, While I think their stuff is REALLY COOL in that "arty" way, I don't think it makes very good concert poster art. It's way too hard to get the band name and venue info on this piece (and their other stuff). Shouldn't that be just as important as it being a great design? As far as knocking off the "big tit" thing. Hey, That's what I like and I'm sure there are plenty of others who do too. Concert Posters are one of the few mediums that artists can do that kind of stuff without criticizm (for the most part). I became a musician because I wanted to meet girls. It's part of Rock and Roll! So please leave the "big tit" artists alone :)   2001-11-21 13:22:23
SpeedSend Speed a message :   Nice-I'm really liking the stuff from AA, more advertising based classically trained styles, I hope it inspires other (hint) to knoff some of the devil big tit thing!   2001-11-21 12:24:19
