I like this much better than the unsane posters that have dead folks on em. A gun pointed at my head says a lot more to me than showing me a dude with his head allready blown off.... at least this way I have options and can get invovled in a senerio instead of appalled by an event.
Not that at times I don't think Art doesn't deserve it but I think "godisold" is right with this. Yea there were some really shitty things said towards the end but in the begining Art was "not so simply" comenting more towards a style than this particular poster. This forum isn't just a place to pat each other on the back, its also a good place to talk and argue about design in general and that's where the good stuff is, so just because they are saying something you don't want to hear doesn't mean they don't bring anything meaningful to this site. I appriciate the comments made on the swiss style I don't really agree with them all but they made me think. There was some really great stuff amidst all the shit with this one today.
If this poster recieved a fraction of the attention from its intended audience that it has recieved here then it was a really good poster! I guess that's why they teach monkeys that this is good design... look at the response. Even if it does suck I bet we all know now what bands are playing.
