HYNESSend HYNES a message :   rather than thinking too hard when i posted my rfirst comment, it seems i wasnt really thinking at all - the three elements together do make sense now but i didnt register the globe as a cage at all when i first looked at it. Also despite the non traditional 'hippy' style the idea does work for a 'hippy' band. Less flash commenting from me from now on.   2007-02-15 09:29:11
BackSend Back a message :   Perhaps since 2 years I don't put a message on this forum, just to tell that:this is a strong, sad, true image. The way too that the circle is not in the center makes think that we're loosing now,a thing that will never appears again.

evanmarnochSend evanmarnoch a message :   i could see your point if it were a dude wearing his sister's pants with a bleeding eye..   2007-02-14 22:38:27
piemelSend piemel a message :   well... i am dumb so that makes total sense
A fucking white dove with a bleeding eye and some fancy font connects to my braincells as being EMO
totally wrong perhaps but thats my braincells at work

evanmarnochSend evanmarnoch a message :   this does not look "emo".. thats dumb.   2007-02-14 22:06:54
piemelSend piemel a message :   "and i would argue the idea that we do posters for "emo" bands but that we should save for a whole nother day."
well... this whole poster speaks to in the following way : do NOT go to this show because the music will suck
not saying your poster sucks (though personally I have seen much better stuff from you guys)... I just equate this with shit music
I am brainwashed

andydieselSend andydiesel a message :   blonde- you haven;t been to a hippy show recently. i was suprised at vegoose, most of the hippies were just trustafarian frat boys.   2007-02-14 21:57:13

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   andydiesel 2007-02-14 21:13:04 "galactic too. maybe they are getting sick of frat boy hippy fans?"
I don't think it's possible to be both a hippie and a frat boy simultaneously. Frat boys beat up hippies.

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   i understand what your saying, but check their site. Their art director has made a conscious effort to depart from that style whether good or bad.
and i would argue the idea that we do posters for "emo" bands but that we should save for a whole nother day.

piemelSend piemel a message :   huh... i find it surprising that a band would want to have such a diverse style of posters
but I stand corrected... if they want it they are correct
i can't blame them for trying to get out of the hippy band imagery... just thought that it would make more sense to have a much more focused image rather than this hotch potch of various things.
and yes... any band that pays its designers is cool

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   why would a band send out cease and desist letters to people they hired?   2007-02-14 21:39:45

stinkbaitSend stinkbait a message :   Dave Matthews, Trey Anastasio, Yonder Mountain and Widespread all have consciously moved away from "jam band" imagery. they all approached a bunch of us GP designers and asked for designery style and not hippy. Us, Heads of State, Farm Barn , Methane...
been happening the last two years at least. What's not to get?

Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   hey they actually pay designers... they rule.   2007-02-14 20:32:14
piemelSend piemel a message :   I still don't fucking get it...
itlooks like some shitty emo band to me... not a hippy style jam band scene group
and looking at all their other posters... they are all over the damn place...
time for some serious art direction and C&D letters if I were that band

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   i mea, what kozik said before the designy thing.
i moved the caged bird off center so the blood would drop into the form of the "w"

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   Ye, basically what Kozik just said.   2007-02-14 17:42:29
kozikSend kozik a message :   also its printed 'off center' making it 'anti' yet designery.   2007-02-14 17:42:20
Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   we did a few posters for this tour. the band wanted us to approach them with more of a socially conscious leen to them.
This was just kind of a commentary on the state of the world today. Dont think too hard.

kozikSend kozik a message :   its pretty obvious
'widespread panic' currently engulfs the world. Peace cries..cries tears of blood for the innocent dead.
I have no idea what the band is about,but the poster makes sense as a pun.

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Piemel - i dont get it either. It looks great as a poster but i sort of feel i'm being tricked into believing it has a strong concept behind it with the use of strong iconography - blood as tear, peace dove, globe. Strong stuff, but i dont get the connections. That said, i know little about the band. Dusty, care to spell it out?   2007-02-14 17:34:56

18x24 3 color Run of 300 (i think) printed by diesel fuel.
