Sasha's right . We don't approach anything poster design wise that isn't going to be fun. This is the side of our design company that is the freedom part. where the client has complete trust to let us do our thing.
our ideas are to push the envelope but we aren't trying to show off. those comments seem to stem from insecurity with someone's own work. we're just trying to keep things interesting.
And Art I don't think this qualifies as a traditional poster at all. We are trying to break tradition. Isn't that how everything evolves?
I'm only clarifying what is allowed on this site. By Clay's guidelines this is an advertisement for a show.
I'm not going to try and convince anyone that it's a poster or try and set an all encompassing definition of what a poster is. Everyone has their own definition of what a poster is. There are plenty of arguments about what constitutes posters even when they are all printed on paper.
We are pushing boundaries. If folks like that then great if not I don't care. We apply different thought processes when it's appropriate. You wouldn't see me doing something like this for Mastodon but you will see me make a kite kit for the Flaming Lips. If you are too close minded to accept something out of the norm then I don't care to engage in a discussion about why you are right and I am wrong. If you dig it I'll talk about what's next with you.
It's all subjective anyway. This is a valid advertisement for this show. It is unconventional but it promoted the show. It fits this sites criteria to be seen here.
Edie Sedgwick. She was one of the Warhol factory kids. Had a movie called Ciao Manhattan. Pretty much about her life. She lived in her parents swimming pool. She died along time ago... the Cult and Dramaramma also used this image for album art...
