i like it, however i find pretty much any half-talented ‘designer’ can make cool gig posters. show me something where there was a strict brief with an actual strategic goal and a beautiful solution/execution and i’ll pile on the praise.

just sayin’…

@grumpy: i suppose it’s odd that you’re not featured on here. (if you are, i’m sure everyone would like to see some examples.)
i see subtle moves that move away from in-the-box thinking and towards a less “goal” driven purpose. =more art than advert.
just sayin’…

brandon, i’m not sure why it’s “odd” i’m not featured on here. oh, i get it now, you are implying that i probably suck because i’m NOT on here and you really don’t like my comment, haha. ok fine.

well, i do think these are pretty sweet and are executed well. i think i said i liked them, no?

that said, everyone and their mother does the aesthetic apparatus gigposter steez. and that’s fine too, and i would agree that some do it very well. and i realize these are…gigposters. i visited scott’s site…and i like his stuff. i was really hoping to see a section for identities though…

I find it odd that identity systems are what you consider best illustrates real design. Sounds like a bunch of undergrad design school jive to me.

But I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt here. Please hit us with a link to your amazing strategic identity work so we can all drool over the next level stuff you are producing.

Thx, “Grumpy”.

“just sayin…”

whew, you find it odd, brandon finds it odd – you guys should get out a bit more, go have a coffee together and discuss how odd everything is…

actually when i look at a portfolio, that is a VERY good way to tell the skill of a designer. you disagree apparently. great. is it ‘a bunch of undergrad design school jive’? i wouldn’t know and i have no idea what that even means. i do know it’s a very simple way to get a feeling for sourcing real talent. did i imply that scott sucked because there were no logos on his site because i don’t think i did…i was merely hoping to see a wider selection of his talents. i’m sorry if it offends you that i find logos particularly key in determining a designers skill set.

as for my ‘amazing strategic identity work’ you assume i obviously must have for me to even DARE to attempt any sort of criticism of design, feast your eyes on this and then go splash some cold water on your face:

Like jesus, he takes a few colors and turns them to many to feed all our hungry eyes. I’ll be studying these for tricks to use on my own prints :)
