If I continue to do so are type designers gonna be so butt hurt that they stop designing type and the type wells dry up like oil?

We pretty much ALL use digital type once in a while. And all those typefaces were designed by someone who wasted hours and hours and days trying to get all their letters to look right and have a good weight and all that shit. When type gets stretched it ruins all the energy they put in making that type shape and line *just right*.
Imagine if someone were to use your poster in an article and stretches it to make it fit better. It would look fucked up and wrong and you'd be pissed. That's kind of like when type gets stretched.
Look at me! I just posted a bullshit designery typography lesson on a Richie Goodtimes poster! Now I can die.

piemelSend piemel a message :   "Take any design 101 class and you will be told not to stretch type. Based on that criteria this poster fails."
That criteria is a load BULLSHIT then.... it MUST be because this poster rules
its obvious that your design rules make no difference whatsoever
so why have them in the first place?
  2006-10-24 13:06:01
stinkbaitSend stinkbait a message :   "What if something goes against 'the rules' yet is still a kickass poster because it just looks and feels good? "
Then that's awesome. You asked a question and I answered it. Take any design 101 class and you will be told not to stretch type. Based on that criteria this poster fails. We all know that it is a success for a number of other reasons.
Too many variables to pigeonhole any one style on here and say it fails as a poster.
Richie started this shit by saying AA's hold steady poster failed as a ROCK poster. I'm just stating another viewpoint on why his work fails as a design.

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   I totally understand where you're coming from with that argument piemel, and i agree. But those magazines are not around to gauge the quality of gigposters, they are design magazines, and they look for certain criteria because of the audience they are cattering to.
Our posters wouldnt be seen in Juxtapoz, because its a different audience. We wouldnt be hired by Hot Rod magazine to do an illustration because thats not our style. High on Fire isnt going to hire us to do an album cover. Different strokes.

Right! That just it. Because it could possibly attract clients that he could not stand to deal with.
So, if you don't like the "designery" stuff...just ignore it as it doesn't really effect you or your world. Right?

piemelSend piemel a message :   The type sucks because the rules say so... yet those very same rules don't apply for certain poster styles?
sounds to me that those rules mean absolutely nothing and applying rules is one thing but judging posters on those rules is just stupid...
what the fuck?
look at Kozik's NIN poster (Tate?Manson)... the type is probably horrible according to your rules but in my opinion it is THE ultimate Kozik poster from the 1990's...
"A PRECEDENT HAS BEEN SET THAT THESE TYPE OF POSTERS ARE ACCEPTABLE?"
What kind of a statement is this? It sounds like it makes your heart implode because 'some' people have called this 'poster style/type' ACCEPTABLE????
fuck the design rules, fuck the type rules and fuck any standard or definition of a great poster.... there are no rules when it comes to a good/great poster.
This goes both ways... I think there are tons of great posters that use gay doves and fucking upside down umbrellas.
design standards my ass
Everyone keep following those standards and before you know it all posters will start looking the same with the same fucking clipart, same type and same layout... oh wait.... that basically already is the case....
What if something goes against 'the rules' yet is still a kickass poster because it just looks and feels good?

I personally think it sucks but a precedent has been set that for this type of poster it's acceptable. So I'll cut him some slack on a certain level. the type still blows and doesn't fit design standards. David Carson made the most unreadable magazine ever and people called him a typography genius.

Technically speaking you are a badass. When it comes to metal/punk/hardcore etc. you know exactly what you are doing. You couldn't make a modest mouse poster. Having to "design" something that "brainy" would go against your grain. I'm not saying you are a dumbass. Far from it you are a smart mother fucker but your aesthetic doesn't swing that way.
That is all cool too. we don't need every single poster maker working for the same band and making the same style. THAT would be tragic and super boring. I want you and Fisher and Jagger, Forbes, and Firehouse to make day glo ROCK posters. I want Heads Of State, and AA , and Jason Munn and Patent Pending to keep making "smart" posters for indie rock bands. and if one of us crosses over successfully then more power to them. Fisher has made designer type stuff, Chuck Sperry has done it, Kleinsmith has made rock posters and so has AA.
They don't have to do it every time out though to make good posters.

What I myself have learned over the five years that I have been on this site and part of this community is exactly what Stinky said in the last bit there. It's about the audience and knowing how to speak to them. That has been apperent to me for some time now. I just wish more designer/ artists would respect that a little more.
But, I am over crying about it. It just is what it is. People will do as they please. So, I just worry about myself and do my own thing in a way I can live with for me.

But Richie knows the audience and he knows this will appeal to them and the band. I don't have to like it to appreciate it on that level.
This doesn't mean I fear him it means I think his posters suck on one level and are successful on another. He should acknowledge the same for the AA poster or any number of "designer" posters that speak to the band and their audience but not necessarily to him. Just because you don't know the music doesn't mean a poster is a failure.
