I did a white on white shirt for storm and stress back in '97. I wonder when shellac did theirs.
I also tried to the promo posters with just clear varnish but Tough & Go wouldn't go for it and insisted on putting all the info in black 12 point in the middle of it. Ruined the whole concept.
Back in 2000, Boss Hog did white on white tshirts.
black on black is where its at....I've got a Johnny Cash T-shirt from his first American Records tour that has CASH written on the back in black(ACDC?)...however, since I"ve worn the thing a kazillion times, now its black on grey.
What type of action would you recommend? I think that if a groups songs and images are strong enough to get people to think - or at least see things in a different light, then that in itself is taking action. This applys to everyone except Bono.
just like a designer to tell just why he doen't like his own work.
knowing the background on the event, i really like the fact that it's so hard to read. good concept. and, i would imagine, the fans of the band knew the image.
The jpeg here doesn't do it justice - it's even harder to read in real life! It's printed black on black. (So it's kinda like a bb/w.) As soon as the band broke up and there was half a chance that there would be a final show, it was already sold out. The club and band still wanted a poster for the event. It was hung as a normal poster would but only in the right light could it be read. I think it represents the fading of the band into the black and stands as a kind of "tombstone" (without being overtly obvious). The skull and crossbones is from their first 7". Truth be told, I don't really like this poster all that much. It's clunky and obvious and not a little bit ugly. But, the kids go nuts for black on black.
i'll have to take yer word for it stainboy- i'll do myself an injury tryin to find it otherwise...
figured it was probably something i couldn't see back there...really like this patent pending stuff tho- we were talkin before about b&w before, well these folks' stuff is a great example of use of colour over strict form, love it...
