  not to make all this a long argument or anything, but you can definitely sense intention vs accident. the best thing about that type that shows it's not slapped on is its relationship to the space it's in. the text floats between the bottom and top books in the stack. placing the text there added a certain depth to the image that was only supposed before it was there...

rules make things look boring, rob personality and relatability from an image. it's someone whose eye is sophisticated, not amateurish, who can make images in those terms, even if the translation isn't the kind of image you are expecting to see.

you are mistaking sophisticated for amateur because you aren't comfortable looking at it, so you want it to change.

  i think there is a big difference between amateur and skilled, that's all. nothing here is unconscious or an accident, that's why it's really well done.

On top of it, it's totally great for the band.

balance and sleekness are sometimes overrated, and this expresses more than it would have if it had a sleekness to it. of course, this is just my opinion.

  nothing is amateur about this poster. it is very refined as is.

dnml, you are spot on.
