tornadoSend tornado a message :   Very interesting.   2004-03-25 17:21:59
Thee AlexSend Thee Alex a message :   Don't get me wrong, I think it is a fine poster....but I have come to expect more from the Poster Of The Week.
This is good, but *just* good.

Pat. James LongoSend Pat. James Longo a message :   Great poster. Great image. Strong text.
That image is worth using a few times. There wouldn't be much art or posters for that matter without appropriation. That image looks pretty old. I doubt anyone on the site can claim they used it first. I read the comments of other posters using this image. Seemed people enjoyed the stolen image in those. Is it just because it is the poster of the week? It's only one week. Seven days. There probably will be other "Posters of the Week" coming very soon.

HelterSend Helter a message :   At first I wasn't sure why this got potw either, but now I think it balances the all-illustration, all the time fever. I can't draw, so I gape and sigh over that stuff, but this has superb type choices, excellent use of an image to communicate content, and unbeatable composition.   2004-03-24 18:43:30
MongerSend Monger a message :   I havent checked out gigposters.com in a while and was really surprised to see this up here. yes, its stolen. do an altavista image search and type in "make out" or some shit like that. as far as being functional but not that flashy and so on, I agree. when I made this poster I was pumping out 30 to 50 posters a month for half a dozen clubs while also putting them up on the street. I wanted them to be functional and recognizable for each club I worked for and also as one of my posters. now I do around 15 a month, its nice to not be so creatively taxed trying to come up with good ideas. thanks for the comments, I'm all about constructive criticism. I especially enjoyed "poster of the weak", that was rad. *nat   2004-03-24 17:21:35
Brute666Send Brute666 a message :   It's a good all-around poster. Easy to read, nice layout, eye-catching use of imagery, easy to reproduce on a xerox. All the things a promoter LOVES about posters. Nice job and congrats Nat.   2004-03-24 10:35:45
fuzzferatuSend fuzzferatu a message :   This is okay, but the point about info display is important. If I, trying to promote a show, had to choose between this poster and a screenprinted poster with swirly neato letters that took 30 seconds to read, I'd choose this one immediately. I think that people get caught up in the artfulness of poster design without taking into account that there is also a function in addition to the form. These aren't art prints for the wall, they're for enticing finicky concert goers to come to a show. Plus...it has kissing, which is very romantic.   2004-03-24 09:24:33
Dance PartySend Dance Party a message :   This poster is old....but neat. Super work Nat.

standardSend standard a message :   I appreciate a flyer where the imagery is a not-obvious (read: hess) pun on the band name. This flyer is CLEVER.   2004-03-23 13:55:41

seripopSend seripop a message :   looks fine to me too and nat is a real sweetheart i met him last summer and touched his hair. i wish we could pull off this kind of simplicity.   2004-03-23 12:51:35
Casey BurnsSend Casey Burns a message :   Yeah, this totally works. we all steal shit here and there, especially for xerox flyers. this is nice. and quite legible, to boot.   2004-03-23 12:37:13
ryanaugustSend ryanaugust a message :   Yeah, I don't see how you can bag on this. The type is nice and effective. The image is graphic and catches your eye. Looks good to me.   2004-03-23 12:21:28
ToothSend Tooth a message :   I like it. I take some liberties with the info on posters but this (and nat damm's other work) is a great example of an ACTUAL WORKING POSTER...not something meant to be numbered and collected and all that. A poster that looks cool and that you could glom all the info from while riding past it on your bike. Congratulations.   2004-03-23 12:17:17

ClaySend Clay a message :   Dani - I chose this poster because I like it. No one ever posted anything about 'stolen imagery' in the comments.. so how would I have known?   2004-03-23 11:47:24

DaniVachonSend DaniVachon a message :   You're kidding!! This can't be Poster of The Week! No offense, Nat, but i am aware that this is stolen imagery (i made a poster using the same photo like 3 years ago) and the layout is just OK. I've come to expect great things from Poster of the Week.   2004-03-23 11:27:45
