  but you get my point. this isn't really design - it's geometry as decoration. it has no narrative value - nothing to say to anyone except people who make things look pretty. seems to me that if there's one thing that these gigposters do is challenge the viewer, to attempt interaction, to inspire feelings or thought.

this poster just sits there like a lump. it takes no real creative insight to do this poster. anybody on this site could have done it. nobody bothers to because there is NO personal creative challenge to it. even AA says so.

  suddenly, it's kinda funny! i wonder if it's some sort of way too subtle commentary on consumer society and our collective slavery to shopping????

NOT!

  i'd have to go back and look at the other poster, but i think they are not very smart or talented posters. dave, YOU could do this poster. my SISTER could do this poster. so, i don't think it's very special. pretty? absolutely! (i'd hang it in my bathroom). good (as i define 'good')? not really.

  this kind of layout is what they teach in university design programs as 'good' design. a fucking ape can do this shit.

an instructor from the university of washington design department (about as consevative a design program as exists - they used to teach my work in class as how NOT to do deaign. they held me up a shinning bad example) was in my studio one day (a long story). he was curious about what i did. i showed him a copy of mu "instant litter" book and talked about how great i thought punk stuff was. he flipped through it, occaisionally stopping, staring, finally he stammered out, "But.... it's just.... so.......UGLY."

he really thinks design exists to impose order on a chaotic world and that beautiful was the highest called of the designer.

his work looked exactly like this poster.

  i've found early posters in seattle that are definitely psychedelic and pre-date this one. but they were in total isolation whereas this one opened a floodgate.

an amazing piece of history. none of us would be doing these posters now if this little scrap of paper hadn't have been created in to middle of the fuckin' desert.
