  • Compilation Poster for a 5yr old

    My 5yr old recently went to his first ever Primus concert. We failed to get him a concert poster, and instead of buying one online I thought I would make him a compiled poster of ALL of the posters from the whole fall tour. What do you pros think of the layout? Please be honest, I have thick skin...

    I'm sure its fine for its intended audience. Although from a print production standpoint, most wide-format printers are going have a difficult time rendering those fine details/type on the small surrounding posters.

    Maybe pick 4 or 5 posters - the ones you think might be his favorite?

      I like the layout. I think you'e got the stacking order about right down the left side, and although symmetry isn't always something I reach for, I think in this case, the right side would look better stacked the same way (mirrored) as the left.

      As for turning your 5 yr-old on to Primus, my hat is off. My daughter, who's now 12, used the term 'progressive metal' during a 3rd-grade presentation on "things I like," and 5 years later still fields the question from peers and teachers; "what did you mean by that?" So proud.
      I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

        Agreed on the detail/text of the small ones - luckily I'll be running this on an Epson 7900 at 24" x 18" - so it shouldn't be too much of big deal. I really would prefer to have the whole tour (still have to wait to add 12/29 & 12/30 in before printing) but if the rendering is an issue once I do - I may reduce it to a few of the best ones. Thanks for your feedback.

        You're absolutely correct about the stacking order. How have I not seen that before now.. (derp) Thank you!

        As for the 5yr old liking Primus - it's really awesome. He LOVES their newest one (The Desaturating Seven) which is based on the 70's children's book The Rainbow Goblins. Hence the theme of the above compilation... Unfortunately Primus isn't his favorite like dad, I'll just have to be ok with his favorite being Nirvana (for now)... LOL. Sounds like you have a pretty awesome daughter yourself.

              I like how you've added the concert ticket to the poster. That helps personalize it.

                Thanks! The photo of the show (above the bear) is also one of our shots so its from the vantage point that he'll remember.

              hello Troep, do you search it in google font? If you are not searched search still now, then do it. I don't tell you that you find that font but I hope you should find a similar one.

              I've always had a side business doing work for various clients, but I've never bitten the bullet and taken the chance of doing it full-time. Honestly, I'm a little envious of you. Good luck!
