TwoManWarSend TwoManWar a message :   With all respect to the previous commenters, to me, there is no difference between "Comment" and "Critique." If these threads weren't for critiquing, what would be the point of them existing?
My advice would be that if you don't want a critique, don't click the "comments" link to see what people are saying about posters.
If you are the type of person who truly doesn't want a critique, you probably aren't very good at designing posters.

VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   Somewhere between "What don't you like about the type?" and "Rubbish" you became a douche. But, I still like the poster a lot and usually hate posters with band members on them, so good on ya, mate.   2007-12-20 09:27:41

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   Woah, what the hell? This thread grew. For the record, I agreed with Senor Crosshair, and expounded upon my criticism/opinion only after Mister Kaufman ASKED what was wrong with the type. Now yeah, he has every right to reject my crit, but I get a bit offended whenever I take the time to actually look at something and offer my thoughts on it, rather than pass it over just like the other cache of posters that are on this site with absolutely zero comments on them. Why spend my time commenting on this if I don't want to say it's "nxtlvlsht?" Probably because I find this poster very good in a number of ways, except for what I already mentioned. I found it worth my time.
Now as far as what Mister Perkins said, that's a fair enough point. I would hope, though, that input from the side of the people that the shows/posters are being advertised to is also valuable to designers. I could write a disclaimer on the bottom of my posts stating that i'm not a designer, but like, why? My opinion/crit. can be taken with either a grain of salt or with some weight. It's his choice. I just get a little peeved when he asks, I offer, he says "rubbish."

This is a poster archive, not a poster school." True, but the dude asked what was wrong with the type, and Blonde responded. Ah, fuck...I don't know why I care. I'm gonna look at something with tits on it. And I like this poster.   2007-12-18 12:19:49

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   sam -
so, in closing (for me), i think this is a great poster. i'll be watching to see what comes along next for you. i'm sure i'll get a kick out of hit. and if you hang out here, enjoy the battles, cuz you won't avoid them. but, it's still worth the effort. this is a great sioght. world class. important, even.

DCMSend DCM a message :   In terms of a poster that incorporates an image of the band (i'm guessing that's who they are) this is certainly a really great example. It looks great and it pretty damn eye catching. I can't really find fault with the text. I'd personally be drawn in enough to read a smaller font like that..... All in all, two thumbs up!   2007-12-18 11:41:03
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   now, that phillarts fella - HE'S a dick. i pale in comparison to him. the worst part is that he actually thinks he's witty. hard to believe, but it's true.
like, for instance, he thinks it's funny to be my "friend" on the telephone and is really sweet and nice and then he gets on gp and constantly lunges at me with a pitchfork. i think he thinks that sort of thing is 'witty' or 'clever'. i guess. i'm personally really really sick of that crap. i wish he'd just go away and shut the fuck up.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   in a weird way, you are, sorta. a lot of people seem to think that doing gigposters makes them punk rock stars. it's silly, but they really think that. hell, i even thought that for a while. really stupid.   2007-12-18 11:24:11

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i think this is a really cool, great poster. the image is really interesting and explosive and powerful. the typographic treatment is nasty in that it does exactly the opposite of what 99% of gp'ers would do. it's almost anti-type. and look at that big black space in the upper left. who the fuck needs color? that's beautiful.
sam - there are some real dicks hanging around on gp. they tend to think that calling you a moron or calling your poster a failure is an actual crit. you have to develop a thicker skin. if you don't learn to deal with it, move on. if they get too nasty, step out of the room for a while. it'll cool down again. it really will.
of course, they'll still be waiting for you to make a mistake....

B-DROIDSend B-DROID a message :   My two cents: While you are certainly entitled to listen to criticism or not and make your own decisions with your design, I think that it could have been a much stronger poster with a heavier type. Not overpowering or larger, but something with a bit more weight to it. Now, if you were going for something small and simple, why distress the band name? That really doesn't say "simple" to me...   2007-12-18 04:59:29

sjkaufman1Send sjkaufman1 a message :   All I said was "rubbish" my tits aren't twisty, it seems everyone else's is. I just wanted the type to not be competing with the image. It was a choice. And just because someone gives criticism doesn't mean I have to or should agree. This isn't MrBlonde7's Typography School. I wanted the type small and simple, the band agreed and dug it. So I was happy and client was happy, case closed.   2007-12-18 04:06:04

El Negro Magnifico!Send El Negro Magnifico! a message :   I think Blonde was spot-on with his criticism for the most part. The contrast works for me, personally. Yeah, maybe the venue info could've been larger, therefore bolder...but it kinda works. Whatever.   2007-12-18 02:33:52

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I mean, I can appreciate juxtaposition of subdued vs. explosive. Was that what you were trying for? Even if so, I feel like there would have been a better way to go with it. Something a bit harder. Maybe there's not stark enough of a contrast. Like, a firmer type that's completely blacked out/dark. This doesn't stand out too much.   2007-12-17 04:19:20
