Lonely RobotSend Lonely Robot a message :   i like this poster a lot, its bold and i reckon it'd stand out from a distance.
Regarding the argument/discussion going on here (and please don't jump down my throat, i'm not a graphic designer, just someone who does this for fun) ... does everything on a poster have to be symbolic or signify something? to me this poster doesn't represent anything in particular but it is aesthetically pleasing and draws the eye ... which is the main aim of a gig poster surely?

Nicholas M MacMillanSend Nicholas M MacMillan a message :   Sorry... I didn't mean to sound like some anti-computer purist. That's not AT ALL what I am saying. It's just using them to replicate something that get's it's character pretty much from actually BEING hand done and visceral seems like a contradiction to me. That's all I was saying.
It's like this weird symptom of post-modernism and hipster culture where nothing actually has BE anything, it just has to SIGNIFY and REFRENCE it. That sounds kind of pretentious, but I don't know how else to explain it.
Maybe this wasn't the best poster to have this conversation about? I kind of feel bad now. Sorry. Just nevermind me...

Nicholas M MacMillanSend Nicholas M MacMillan a message :   It's like it just REFRENCES it, but it doesn't actually BECOME it. Does that make sense?
Again... maybe I should find a better example, I'm not just talking about this poster.

Nicholas M MacMillanSend Nicholas M MacMillan a message :   Maybe this isn't the best example of what I was talking about, because yes, to be fair these 'drips' take on a new more mechanical/ersatz aesthetic. But there are some really terrible examples that all over the place. It's like a design cliche of the last 5 years.
Like, in general... what are things like 'drips' meant to signify? Why to people include them in a design? Most of the time I think people are refrencing a sort of immediacy like in good graffiti/street stencel art/hand made punk art... In my opinion, making a digital reproduction of those things removes any of the cool aspects of those things they were trying to achieve by adding them to the design. It's just an empty signifier.

Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   well - there are some "sprayed" elements here and some fake drips. I think the drips are supposed to look mechanical to act as the contrast to the more fuzzy "spray" look of the faces.... in that case it works.

HollySend Holly a message :   I like this. So what if they are computer made dots. Jeez.   2006-04-09 21:32:50
crosshairSend crosshair a message :   because then you would have to spend more than 10 minutes making a poster you don't care about anyway... and you might get your hands dirty! I mean, have you ever looked at a screenprinter's or an illustrators fingernails? EWWWWW!   2006-04-09 21:30:13
bdixSend bdix a message :   they're a whole different aesthetic.
why draw a skull when you could just kill someone, watch their corpse rot, and take a photo of the remains.

Nicholas M MacMillanSend Nicholas M MacMillan a message :   I don't understand those fake computer-made "drips" that SO MANY people use. I don't get it: if you want it to look hand made and immediate than actually MAKE it that way... why bother spending time to emulate something you can just do it for real.   2006-04-09 21:21:23
