That Print Mafia poster is totally amazing!!!! It's my favorite thing I've seen of theirs. Even in b/w is it totally hot hot hot. Can't wait to see the colour version. Yes.
This one... to me just seems like a collection of cliches that doesn't quite gel as a whole...
"the promoter wasn't pleased w/the poster that was done. i already did the advertising, shirt, etc. artwork and was asked to do 2 posters for the show. not sure if it replaced that poster."
What promoter? Stanton? We dealt with Stanton directly. We have talked with him for weeks before and he gave us personal images to use for our poster. He sent it out over his myspace page to all his connections and asked that it be reposted. He has expressed his gratitude and how much he liked our work thru email and in person. We were asked to keep in touch for future projects. We were actually at the event. The fucking thing was enlarged in full color to 3 x 4 ft. by them and mounted on foam board and displayed prominently in the entry way of the venue. We attended this show at Stanton's request.
There was 1 flyer done before we got involved and then 2 more done after your 2. All were present at the show and were used online to promote. Maybe those last 2 replaced yours. We don't know for sure so therefore we won't go online and speculate and call into questions others work and relationships when we don't know positively what the fuck we're talking about.
We don't get into much shit and usually play nice. We're tired of it.
it still is a terrible poster.
honestly. i could think of 10 valid reasons why its a bad design.. bad layout.. bad typography...
poor palate of colors... clumsy execution...
i could be more specific, but YOU are the designer.. so, figure it out.
also, the reason people are talking about it, is because it sucks. not cause it caused some sort of earthquake in the design community.
tell me to fuck off or whatever. you wanted me to elaborate.. hope this helps.
ps. the whole satan thing tired.
thank you for your interest. art should stir things up and it did.
whether you like it or not, but you won't see me posting negative, nonconstructive comments towards any poster on this site...labeled correctly or incorrectly.
thank you for your time spent here.
Geez, you can't look at that poster and say that it sucks because it doesn't. If you truly think that it does suck then enlighten us all with a little substance behind that very strong opinion, otherwise your opinion is nothing more than bullshit.
I don't hate this at all. It's appropriate for the acts involved. My only beef was that the other acts were not mentioned when this got submitted. Then it all got out of hand. These stupid arguments get us nowhere, so I'm fuckin' done.
So then Danzig is NOT the headliner?
Also, given that 666 is the number of the beast, and this whole 6.6.06 date is throwing that crap in people's faces as a cheap marketing ploy it seems fitting that it attracts negativity. Satan isn't usualy seen as a positive influence in society.
you guys are all so brilliant.
danzig is support to hank III so i guess you did miss something.
i'm amazed at the negative energy around poster art. i wouldn't take the time to cap on someone's work in this forum, however i would tell them if i liked their art.
not looking for acceptance but i will say "fuck you".
Did I miss something?
If DANZIG is the HEADLINER... why does the poster say"with special guest performances by GLEN DANZIG"?
At first I thought this advertised a band called "666"and if not, Hank III and Assjack are the headliners. Or so it would seem from the listing on the poster.
The art is so-so. Doesn't really blow my skirt up.
Definitely think that the most important part of the posting is adding all the bands to the listing.
I mean forget that this is a brilliantly designed piece of art with amazing illustration and well thought out composition. Disregard all of that because band names aren't listed.
There are 18 comments on this poster and very few are actually about the poster. That is ridiculous.
it seems to me that an artist would want as many bands as possible listed on here as all the cross referencing on somthing like this just makes it like five times more likely someone would see their stuff.
I like iced coffee, Neltner's posters and I have always been here.
If this is meant to be an archive, where we can find posters by searching for them...adding all the band names just seems like common courtesy to all the artists involved.
designers never forget to put their own name on
