    Flier design help

    Discussion started by High Priest - Jun 2, 2004

    Im pretty bad with photoshop and ive got a broken arm so unfortunantly i cant do any illustration work. I was asked by a friends band to put together a flier for an upcoming show, does anyone have any suggestions?

    *Thats actually the name of the tour, i didnt make that up.

    That looks good, I'm not too sure what suggestions you are looking for.

    sorry, should be more specific. If any one could maybe give pointers as far as how to clean up the lettering, i.e. outlines etc that dont involve tracing the letters with the pen tool over and over it would be greatly appreciated. Other then that im low on ideas and lazy i suppose so if anyone can think of a better color scheme,,,


    (sorry, im just really not feeling the whole "design" thing today.)

    Step 1:

    Remove the cheap PS filter.


    Step 2:

    Change lettering to a font other than Impact. Played out.


    Step 3:

    In fact, just erase everything you have there.


    Step 4:

    Download these two images:

    Image 1

    Image 2

    Combine.


    Step 5:

    Do the lettering with your other hand so that it looks really crappy.


    Step 6:

    Save and print. You win at life, because the resulting flyer is not only on topic, but also embraces the H4RDC0R3 aesthetic.

    Too much effort, cheap effects are what make grindcore music what it is so im gonna have to stick with the shitty filter. The images you sent, altho nice.. (who doesnt like gaping assholes) will take a bit too much time and effort to put together however i do agree with the lettering, so ill probably do some really "hardcore" blown out letters with my other hand.

    * im def. going to use those images for other things tho, so thanks.

    it's not a grindcore flier without a picture of an old school skateboard, the grim reaper, or a large pile of skulls. you should put those in the background. all black fliers are kind of boring looking.

    oh yeah, and the skull shouldn't have a jawbone. it's cooler looking that way.

    to fuck w/ the letters, i thjink you can just trace a path onto that layer.
    also, are these guys willing to pay for color printing?

    find a better picture of a skull.. that shit is too pixelated.. get rid of the curtains in the back ground too.

    as far as lettering lay out goes.. kinda boring, partly due to the font, partly because it seems too uniform and, hence, stale.

    give the skull a gold t:D :D th and some sungl:cool:sses

    might wanna deepen the red up.. might appear orange in print.

    what's up w/ the 2?
