agh. to me, sometimes the whole "it's attention getting" thing just ceases to be a believable sort of yardstick to measure a poster by. often a poster "stands out" compared to others not because it's super-better, but just because it's in color and everything around it is a photocopy, or maybe it's on a bigger piece of paper or something. placed next to "typical" gigposters, this poster would indeed stand out. placed next to universally-agreed upon awesome gig posters, a Times-New Roman-on-white-paper-Mazda-pickup-for-sale-flyer would grab my attention.
i'm not 100% sure what i'm getting at. just trying to kill the last half hour of work.
you nailed that. totally invasive little animated thing. i'm sick of crap all over the bottom of the screen. logos, clocks, news crawls... i want to tape a piece of cardboard over the bottom 2 inches of my screen. i'll only take it off for subtitled kung fu.
i like this picture because it looks like a large milk carton and a small milk carton sitting together on a table that is covered by a beige tablecloth. the table legs - as well as the clamoring kitchen full of youngsters demanding more calcium - are cropped off, leaving the two milk cartons alone with themselves. the lettering is a little hard to read, but downright pretty.
