i had a teacher who mocked me after i asked around to see if someone in class had scissors i could borrow. i was told '"designers only use x-acto blades." i replied "that's great for designers, got any scissors?"
Jeff Kleinsmith is probably my favorite designer right now. He blends great design with solid color selection and unique imagery. You can tell he doesn't try to utilize overused rock imagery and I find that refreshing. He's fabulous and I hope he posts more of his work here.
Awesome! This poster really drives home the importance of direction in design. The flag design of the sleeve offers contrast to the yellowish background, and the arm leads the eye to what the poster's really all about...who's playing. And the busted type recalls a previous Supersuckers logo. All this "design speak" aside, the poster kicks ass.
You said it Pete, this poster is fuckin' fabulous! The beauty of Jeff's work is that there seems to be a very simple and purposeful manipulation of the original idea. He repeatedly shows what impact open space has - take heed ye who saturate your posters with info!
Man this is so great. I'm a huge Jeff Kleinsmith fan. When I started out doing posters he was definatly one of the main influences. Powerful stuff,he totaly changed the subpop look and made it an exciting event every time one of his peices came out of there. I'm just speaking as a art and record geek I guess.Anyway Jeffs work is what good design should be. ROCKS!
