wow. i cant believe all of this discussion. I am a new grad, my ads on my site are my student ad portfolio (hence my advertising design major) and all of the posters that are on this site are real and have been either given to the members of the bands, been designed by the direction of the bands. The arcade fire one was just an omage to them. I love their music and would love to do work for them and I was just going to send them the image to see if they wanted to use it to help promote their show. I do not sell prints or even get paid for any of these posters. The most I get out of anything is free tickets to shows of bands I like. Im simply trying show people what I can do and share design with this community that I thought was all about appreciating good design, but I guess people are reading way too into things and making empty, uneducated assumptions. Im just a designer trying to make it like the rest of you so please give me a break here, I have done nothing wrong.
this is an actual poster, used for and requested by the band. I helped out the bass player flush out a design idea he had and this design was also converted into a 4 x 6 promo postcard... but thanks for all of your loving comments
