  • another nightclub event flyer: Touch

    Produced this last week for a client. I'm pretty happy with it (they're ecstatic with it!). Only thing i've decided I don't like is the black panel that the "touch" logo sits on, on the flyer front (left).

      you think so? have you viewed the full size image, and made sure its expanded in your browser? i thought it was quite clear.

      (its annoying how this forum has "helpfully" started resizing images!!)

        My eye tends to wander alot becasue there is alot going on.

        Which I like but, yes it is hard to read cause my eye doesn't want to stop any where.

        I think it may have something to do with that bold font. The ligher ones seem to read allright but, that bold font in combination is creating some conflicting contrast… I think.

        Which is leading my eye elsewhere.

        I like it regardless but, it is a bit difficult to stay in one place.

            things i like:

            i like the two color approach. the black and orange play off each other nicely. it makes for a good visual presentation.

            i like the style. it definitely works well with the club scene. the extreme viewing angles of the buildings is a great idea. it plays up the notion of walking down the street to get to the club.

            i agree with TZ that the back is hard to decifer. however, your target market will undoubtedly take the extra time to weed thru the clutter..so im not sure that is a big issue.

            things i dont like:

            i dont like how the angle of "touch" on the front doesnt match the angle of the rest of the text on the back. for better consistancy, they should be the same.

            on the back, nothing seems to line up with anything. i cant find a noticable grid arrangement. that is a huge part of why everything looks cluttered/smashed together. better arrangement of the text would make for easier comprehension and a cleaner layout. right now its a sensory overload.

            the white outlines around some of the text is fairly cheesy. i understand why you did it, but i think there are better solutions to solve that particular problem.

            overall its not bad. some minor tweaking and it would be great.

                Typographics summed it up very well.

                I reckon it works well in spite of the minor weaknesses.

                  I agree. See text in red.

                  Perhaps you could try lowering the transparency of some of the black images- the buildings and even that of the orange background to throw forward the text.

                  Very nice work.

                      Is it me, (probably is) or is the 'touch' text not quiite parallel to the edge of the black panel??

                      Good job though!

                        The water droplets on the background don't do much for the cohesiveness of the piece but I dig the rest. Perhaps touch could be a little larger?

                            I really like it. My kind of style (varied perspective is awesome)

                              I think this is Awesome for a Club Flyer. It is perfect for the Club/bar scene!

                                You can scratch the tracing part. I found it easier just to create each neighborhood using the pen tool.

                                I was trying to recreate the following image in Illustrator. I wanted to trace over the image and take out the text used for the neighborhoods but it's taking me a while. Can someone...

                                It's especially the type with the ampersand behind it, but other issues contribute to the legibility problem throughout.

                                Most lace is a repeat pattern. Once you get the corner block and a running block done, it's all gravy from there... Getting it to work as a brush must take some skillz. I wouldn't want to try it, not...

                                I'm not quite understanding why a 76mb 12 page doc would fail on your printer's end. That, to me anyway, is small for so many pages.
