I organize gigs from time to time and like to do the posters/flyers myself. Although I got a little better at doing this over the years, I'm still hardly a wizzard and I do all my work in Photoshop simply because I lack the skills in any other software.
To see what I've done so far, check my gigposter page:
GigPosters.com - Rik Verdonschot
*pause for hysterical laughter from Gigposter.com crowd*
Problem is, I suck at typography (I know, looking at my work, you will probably think I suck at a lot of things, but typography is the worst) and I could use a little help.
I'm currently doing a poster for a show I'm setting up for Dutch postrock band Atlantis (http://atlantis.bandcamp.com , don't worry, it's not my band, so this is not an attempt to advertise )
See the imagery I did so far below. Now I need to get the lettering in and I've thrown a lot of things at it already, but nothing seems to work really.
Do you guys have any tips? Fonts and ways to make them work in this flyer?
I want to place 3 bandnames directly below the drawing and some additional info (date, venue, etc) below that.
Any hints or maybe links to text in photoshop tutorials would be greatly appreciated.
Now let the mocking begin.
