MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   You can buy this as a shirt at your local Hot Topic. I guess I managed to do something that fit the band perfectly after all.   2006-03-21 16:40:37

SashSend Sash a message :   Maximum Fluoride wrote: Wha? That should go without saying.
BUT putting bunny rabbits on a Cannibal Corpse poster probably isn't going to fit the band in many fans eyes. maybe one or two, but shouldn't you be designing for the MAJORITY of the fan base? Shouldn't you be making something the band would POSSIBLY aprove of?
Or are you some ego driven prick that needs to tell the band and kids what they should like and what will work?
How people can argue this makes no sense to me. Simply no sense at all.
Look, if you want to do your own thing without regard for the band... then make fucking art prints. Take the band's name off.
Jeeezus CHRIST on stick!"
nah, I still think you're way off-base. no one ever said no regard for the band was the goal. WTF? you must have previous arguments w/ others from these boards circling in your head.

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   Yeah, that's the whole point Sash, the fine line between giving the people want they want and putting some flair into a project so that the world will be proud of it years later.
It's all about being Creative AND performing a function.
These are posters, which are promotional items for bands, and they are also art. The balance has to be there.
Even the big guys have posters that blow cause they hacked them out for some reason that time around, they all admit and it shows when that happens.

SashSend Sash a message :   it's got to fit the band... but not in any particular way.
hard to explain.

SashSend Sash a message :   that's right. all the great artists rise way above the technician level, and that's way they're hired. people WANT them to give it the kozik treatment or the beardsley treatment or the warhol treatment. otherwise, why hire them?
in the case of gigposters, posters are designed more to advertise a show and entice people to go to it, more than to only reinforce the band's imagery or the designer's notion of the band's imagery.
whatever works in doing that is fair game.

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   The proof is in the pudding.
Who do people come back to time and again to get posters made by?
Who gets more and more well known bands instead of a billion here today gone tomorrow bands?
Who gets better with each poster?
Who achieves success and recognition amongst their peers, the fans, the bands, and the clubs? The names roll off the tonque.

SashSend Sash a message :   it has to do w/ taste and perspective because what you think may not fit the band may fit the band in someone else's eyes.   2004-11-01 19:41:29
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Making a poster that doesn't fit a band has little to do with taste and perspective. It has to do with wankery.
Oh, and this poster has clip art on it. I suck.

SashSend Sash a message :   I coined the term in a gp context yesterday on EzraPound's CC poster thread. I mean "technician" to be one who is hired to do graphics work in order to execute someone else's ideas or visions or imagery. But not so much as a creator, per se.   2004-11-01 18:31:57
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Somebody who lacks the creativity to make a poster outside of a bands usual "visual content".
Like I guess if I had taken some time and thought about it, I could have come up with something for this poster that had less to do with the band and more to do with pleasing other graphic designers or something.
Pssst... I am being sarcastic, Jeph.

JephSend Jeph a message :   What exactly IS a "technician"?   2004-11-01 18:26:56
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Really? Hmmm..   2004-11-01 18:23:49
JephSend Jeph a message :   Really? I think it makes you a good poster artist.   2004-11-01 18:22:50
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I don't think that is a good thing, Jeph. I think it makes me a technician or something.   2004-11-01 18:21:28
JephSend Jeph a message :   I will give that statement a hearty "word"   2004-11-01 18:19:53

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   This show was amazing. Well Avenged Sevefold were. Imagine the bastard child of Iron Maiden, the Misfits, and Earth Crisis mixed with some Melodic Swedish Thrash. All while wearing coool ass Corpse Paint.
They were filming a video so we got to hear the same song twice. Great band, really super nice guys.
