I've decided to start putting logos on all of my posters. Maybe the companies will see that I've used there logo and pay me! Plus I'll have super cool corporate logos all over my posters so PosterChild can make dumb comments on them about logos!
This is kinda weak for Slayer.
I think Micah is getting paid to design these. And guess what?
The printer is getting paid to print them. Lots of them. It's a good thing for all of us.
I don't get what the big deal is here. Slayer isn't some sort of DIY band anyway.
I'm just curious on how the deal works...are artists hitting up the venue (or promoter) and doing the deal and then chili's does what they want with the artwork? Or are people being approached by certain people to do a band poster and then have to sign a disclaimer....?
"Logos happen. get over it."
You're defending a place that gave you food poisoning and made you miss work? I know logos are a necessary evil sometimes, I've had to put them on a couple posters too. I think the credit line for a corp sponsor should be enough, they should understand that their corporate identity is clashing with the counterculture feel of many a poster. This one in particular. I mean look at the badass figure on a red background and the killer type. And below are logos for a suburban family resturant and myspace. I don't mean this at all as a slight on the designer, but the marketing people should understand that they can't brand every item they get involved with like a rancher brands cattle. I also don't mean it as a slight to sponsors per se because were it not for sponsors, this event wouldn't take place at all.
zach- agreed, micah has a good gig here. props.
I'm sick of the logo-hatin. Micah has a good gig here. props. One time I went to Chili's with my aunt and uncle. I had just gotten back to chattanooga from Portland. My little band had played a show with the new bomb turks and we all went to this fancy-assed place to eat before the show. I wanted to look cool so when Jim from the turks asked if I wanted to split some raw oysters with him I was all, "hell yeah let's do it!".... so we eat this sick plate of oysters and then we go to the show and it is fun and the turks rocked and that night I went to the airport after the show. At the airport was this HOT woman reading a fashion magazine. I think she had a sexy ipod... I stared at her from the terminal to the Nashville airport. When I got on the plane flying out of Portland I hit my head cause those planes are too small for my big tall manliness. She laughed at me... i think it was our moment. OUR MOMENT. anyway, I chickened out before I could talk to her once we got back down south...
That night I went out with my aunt and uncle to Chili's. I had the usual delicious chicken fingers. It was incredible. Then I went to bed and woke up in the middle of the night and puked my guts out. It was the last time I went to chili's. I missed work the next day and I never miss work. I'm a sicko like that!
Logos happen. get over it.
ripe poster. I really like cattle skulls for some reason. Satanic looking I guess.
it'd be nice if the corporate sponsor's didn't pee on their territories with their logos. Marketing/Branding departments must die.
If I wasn't stoned the entire 2 years I worked there I probably would have hated it. But the drugs were plentiful and the waitresses were pretty hot.
That was back when Chili's was a fairly new presence.
Did I mention that this poster rocks?
A little electricians black tape would cover that logo right up.
