MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Most of it really doesn't bother me. Styles come and go.... then they come back again alittle different. Nothing is really pure anyway.
I really like seeing stuff that is done well regardless of the style it is done in. Good is good.

Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   I will apologize to Edmund. Guess I didn't dig into his work far enough before completely railing on this piece. So that said, I'm sorry Ed. You have some nice posters and I shouldn't have been so quick to jump all over this. Mike - I look at whatever passes for AA or HeadsOFstate ripoffery just like you do but i can (most of the time) always tell the fakes from the real. It's really crazy to look at that their work from 4 years ago and see how prevalent that style is now. It takes people a few years to catch up.
But i also see alot of GP and outside influences in my own work - I can admit that too.
One morething. the seripop ripoffs still irk me.

DarshSend Darsh a message :   in my opinion, nothing is pure original. Everybody is pulling from some inspiration, some just do it a little more then others.   2006-02-13 15:04:14
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   "My comments are directed at lots of folks. Not calling anyone out. Just saying that it gets old seeing this shit over and over. " You do? If that is true you have way more bitching to do because Seripop may be copied a bit, but there are other designers and styles that are way, way, WAY more copied than this.
"But, every single time i see a poster in this stylistic direction (type and layout) i say to myself before i click the thumbnail, "I wonder if this is a Seripop or one of their many imitators..." and it seems like most days I'm surprised to see that it's not a seripop but someone else. I'm on this site alot in the last three years and I gotta be honest with all of you. Your posters have no voice. They look like imitations to me."
See, for me I do that with AA. Every third poster looks like a cheap AA rip off over the last few years. They have way more imitators than Seripop do.

texecutionSend texecution a message :   i think edmund's designer page shows somebody who is a work in progress- like myself and 95% of the people on this site. more importantly he appears to be having fun doing his stuff. though i could be wrong and he could be a brooding sociopath.   2006-02-13 12:24:22

ryanaugustSend ryanaugust a message :   Hardly any of their posters look like Seripop's work. There's some really cool stuff on their designer page that has plenty of "voice". Trying to call them out on that is bullshit.   2006-02-11 12:27:30

Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   Let's start with an example. I've been extremely influenced by the hand drawn type of certain people and design movements both poster artists and others not on this site or from the current generation. Every single time i set out to hand draw text i constantly push myself to reveal my own voice and not just some saul bass ripoff. It's a very tough process for me and I throw so many sketches away it's not even funny.
But, every single time i see a poster in this stylistic direction (type and layout) i say to myself before i click the thumbnail, "I wonder if this is a Seripop or one of their many imitators..." and it seems like most days I'm surprised to see that it's not a seripop but someone else. I'm on this site alot in the last three years and I gotta be honest with all of you. Your posters have no voice. They look like imitations to me.
Find your own thing. PLEASE.

edmundSend edmund a message :   i do like seripop a lot and they've certainly influenced the way i approach poster making but i've been doing bubble letters for a while and this wasn't a specific attempt at copying their work. i did notice however while working on this that the use of this lettering in black was reminiscent of the seripop aesthetic... but i don't mind though cause i like seripop.   2006-02-10 14:52:27
MeelooSend Meeloo a message :   This really don t look like a Seripop poster. Not even close.   2006-02-10 14:44:27
bmetheSend bmethe a message :   i was just commenting about how influential seripop has become and this is an obvious reflection of that. my comment wasn't meant to be negative about this piece. it works and the execution is good.   2006-02-10 14:33:22
