well, in the case of that hemp money poster, three of us worked on it, but i was in charge. i acted as art director. other projects i've collaborated on eorked in other ways, like where somebody else is in charge and i assist (or whatever). but, three folks working equally together toward a common look is rare and impressive.

BlackBallSend BlackBall a message :   Now if the artwork was all sloppy and had a stupid fucking rainbow in it, it would be less "obvious", and much more "interesting" and "edgy". Retro imagery only fits every band that Art works for. Got it?   2007-12-13 13:25:25

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Lonny - i agree - it was a trend pretty much pioneered by steve rocco and world industries that has persisted since, partly because its easy But i still think in relation to skateboarding which has been an anti-establishment type of recreation persued by 'ousiders' that the corporate logo knock is fully justified (when its done cleverly and appropriately) based on the type of humour surrounding much of skateboarding and its a major part of its graphic history.   2007-12-13 13:12:23

Did the band or representative approve this poster? If so...it would appear that at least some of the fans have a serious disconnect with the band or at least it's desired concept.
  2007-12-13 13:07:31
HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Art - I guess im amazed at how much respect and pats on the back are given to pure 'style' by people on this site - where the reality is the best, most creative work has both style AND the substance to back it up, stuff thats often treated with derision or outright shunned by the 'critics' here. Im talking generically about work here not this poster - though i still dont understand why Hero havnt said anything about their decisions, which are being debated. My guess is that its simply because we are dealing with rock posters, the no mans land of design and theory. Anything goes apparently and thats great - i suppose i'm more dissapointed that a level of appreciation for quality and inventive approaches to design is not as apparent here amongst people who seem to be more creative and open than the average consumer.   2007-12-13 13:03:26
danstilesSend danstiles a message :   well Figbag, by inciting a riot you have pushed the comments on this poster over 100. Which officially makes it good, regardless of what anyone thinks. And I think you are totally entitled to your opinion. You might even be right. Either way, I'm glad to hear real critique on this site every now and then. But Dave sill need to make some kind of fig bag full of dicks comment, because that would be funny.   2007-12-13 13:00:47

figbagSend figbag a message :   Yeah, I normally don't get all pissed about a concept, but this is just too transparent. Maybe because I'm a friend and fan of the band and have trouble wrapping my head around how the hell anyone would end up here for one of their gigs. I know this argument happens here every so often but this one's justified.   2007-12-13 12:53:52
perkinsSend perkins a message :   I guess it's possible that it could have been done before, but I've never see an image of people fucking reversed out of meat. So I'd say at least that part of this thing is innovative.   2007-12-13 12:51:16

perkinsSend perkins a message :   I'd say no, since your opinion was shared by like 49% of America. Right now, Figbag is the only one here who just vehemently opposes this design.   2007-12-13 12:48:16
danstilesSend danstiles a message :   I get emails almost everyday asking if I still have any copies of the naked lady poster I did for them, even though it got slammed on this site for being conceptually tired. So maybe the fans do like posters with nekkid ladies.   2007-12-13 12:47:47

  2007-12-13 12:46:01
HYNESSend HYNES a message :   half of the discussion on this seems to be about the "style" of this poster - the trivial, subjective part of any design. What i find sad is the level of acceptance of obvious, cliched and uninspired approaches to creating imagery and visual solutions to posters. Calls of 'great', 'awesome, and 'amazing' are rampant on many posters like this one. Its sort of like not being able to see the forest for the trees.   2007-12-13 12:45:30
hypoSend hypo a message :   AC- to quote Cameo...."Word Up". I think we're making the same point. My comment was more to Hynes-I'm suggesting that (maybe) by creating a poster outside of the porn parody (meaning creating a poster that represents the bands music) is in fact not in line with the bands original concept.   2007-12-13 12:44:30
perkinsSend perkins a message :   Figbag, if the band's "audience" chooses to buy these up, does that mean there's a chance you could be mistaken? Or at least just a bit militant in your opinion?   2007-12-13 12:43:40

figbagSend figbag a message :   Is it a cool looking poster? Yes. Is it nicely designed. Yes. But I'm sorry, keep trying to justify this working for the band, but it's not working for the audience. Fails. It's gonna look fab in your portfolio though or maybe CA! Congrats!   2007-12-13 12:34:58

Seems like a couple of people are trying to make a big deal about it being inappropriate for the band, and I honestly don't get it. I also think Hero did a fine job with this one across the board.
And cave drawings may not be cool anymore, but everything else is still fair game.

i was only pointing out that it's a tired old dull technique - sorta like i'm a tied old dull designer (as is pointed out so often by you and others). yet, you wanna still turn it into some sort of "let's get chantry because he's such a pompous ego" or some such junk. geez, time to move on, huh?

of course. but that requires a level of sophistcation and familiarity with the band and it's ideals and with graphic design as well.
be honest, how often do you do a poster for a band that you really listen to and understand thoroughly? i imagine something like 75% of the work i've done for music over the years is for bands and labels and scenes that i knew nothing about. zero. but, if you have enough knowledge, you can still direct the way the scene and band ID will evolve. that's where an understanding of the language of graphic design comes in.

you can never get past their name no matter what they sing about. so, it will always work to do a parody of pornography for a band with a name like this.
maybe they should of thought of that before they picked that name.

ImJustRickGSend ImJustRickG a message :   I would agree that while yes, this is advertising (where concept should be king), plenty of fine posters don't have a direct connection to the artist. For instance, I've seen more than a few Morrissey posters that are 180 degrees from his aesthetic, but everyone on GP creams because they're visually interesting. This is advertising via eye candy. :: Now having said that, I think what makes, say, Decoder Ring's or Heads of State's posters so good is that they actually ARE idea-driven. But those are anomalies. :: As to Art's comments: Yeah, I take a pork chop everywhere I take my penis.   2007-12-13 11:50:25

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   if that is the concept behind this poster (which i wish i wasnt GUESSING it was)- then yes its appropriate. Thing is, without a singular more clarified idea i could guess a whole lot of other motivations behind it too.   2007-12-13 11:42:08

danstilesSend danstiles a message :   So the real question is whether the idea of "selling meat" as a metaphor for porn is appropriate for a band called the New Pornographers who actually make happy poppy indie rock.   2007-12-13 11:33:57

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Agreed danstiles, but its a cliched and obvious approach - totally acceptable but nothing inventive, groundbreaking or "great" about it - the people commenting just 'like it, dude" There could be a whole lot more to it if approached a different way.   2007-12-13 11:16:32

danstilesSend danstiles a message :   The whole "fits the band vs. doesn't fit the band" argument is somewhat arbitrary and tends to get leveled against posters that someone simply doesn't like. Just like the "you do posters in your style not the band's style" argument. This poster obviously takes its direction from the bands name. As do most NP posters. Its a fun name to play with.   2007-12-13 11:11:47

I have listened to the band, I own two of their albums. This poster has the same tone and feel that alot of other New Pornographers posters have. I'm not really sure what you're problem with it is - like, are you saying the band has to have to have alot of songs about butchershops for this imagery to be okay?

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   i think its important (and enjoyable) when fans of a particular band question a designers direction for a poster.
