Baloney BoySend Baloney Boy a message :   well, there are many layers of meaning to be found in an Applebee's ad, if you are inclined to look. issues of class identity abound, for example. yes, an Applebee's ad is a treatise on the aesthetics of the American middle class....i mean, this is the deconstructionist reading.   2008-03-12 14:49:48

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   good morning. i'm back from my 3 hour commute to work. i work at a corporate software comapny now. i now make more money in a month than i did in a year. so, times are good.
and i still think this is a superior design. a really good poster. effective. attractive. exciting. a success. not artistic, but great advertising. SELLS!!!
but, you don't have to agree (especially with an old corporate whore like me.) the rule book sez, "you can disagree." it's better that way.
go make your little "art." it's cool. MAYBE I'LL BUY SOME. HEH HEH.

it's a WIN/WIN!!

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   this gigposter clique can be so snobby.
would it interest you to know that a LOT of design culture people really don't see any real difference between most of the work on this sight (including, sadly, even seripop) and this "admat" poater (as you erroneously call it)? it's all crap to design culture people. they dismiss our work as junk.
and here, you guys dismiss this work the same way.
so, the idea that you guys sniff at a poster like this as "bad", i find rather funny in a cute and pathetic sort of way.
youse cracketh me ups.

I do get (some) freelance jobs from my Gigposters® page, and I don't want to represent myself to potential art directors/clients with design work, essentially, they (in my opinion) could do themselves...   2008-03-11 13:25:48

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i tend to champion the more difficult task. i think most people in "design culture" dismiss the boring work out there to easily and overlook the sheer monumental difficulties in favor of praising the pretty and "artistic" work. be honest, the "arty" shit is easy. the boring stuff is the hard stuff. 'design culture' never understands that. they start dissing it with words like "vernacular". it's insulting.
the arty stuff is easy. you don't have any clients to say 'no'.

dennyschmickleSend dennyschmickle a message :   no sierously. I think thibking is overrated.
and I concur that designing purely functional flyers/posters can be challenging to designers who usually have more freedom (including myself), but that doesn't necesarily mean it's good/better.
the best designer/artist/whatever does BOTH really well.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   the best design work happens inside of restrictions. it forces the designer to really THIBK. the fact that this designer was SO restricted and came up with a classic looking poster that could have been from the 50's or the 70's or the 90's or ? is absolutely great. reality is that we never get a chance to follow our creative "muse" in design. we always work FOR a client. this ain't "art".
this stuff looks like real adverts that happen to be about rock concerts. they looks so 1970's that they hit that style accidently right on the head. they look way cool because of it. pure function, no artistic haze to view through. aka - no bullshit poster design. real classic stuff that's VERy hard to do well.
i'll bet NONE of you could do this. you all dis it. but, you can't DO it.

ROTATORSend ROTATOR a message :   Well, I agree with that sentiment in general --- I oft see posters that are so abstracted, and are obviously self promotion tools for the "artist", that if I was the bands management or venue promoter I would say "back to the drawing board Picasso", I need to sell some tickets for THIS band, not another art piece for your assy coffee house "gallery"....that being said, admats leave very little wiggle room for creativity, and therefore become intrinsically more disposable....   2008-03-11 12:47:13
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   well, all that aside -
i still love this stuff. i'd be far far more likely to hang something like this on my wall than i would most of the "artistic" posters on this site.
this is a real poster. most of this other stuff on this site is pretentious fake artistry. rubbish. heh heh...
but, then, that's just one man's opinion.
i love this poster (and them other two, too.)
