  • Happy New Year!

    Hey GDF. Been a while since I posted. Been managing/administrating the family restaurant over the past two years... yeah, this graphic design troll has had to leave the comfort of his LCD screen-lit comfy cave to glad-hand customers and bark at hourly employees not to mention watching the pennies.

    Anyway, finally found some time to do some real design. I love the poster format and our restaurant is doing a promotion for New Years. Busted this out in 5 hours without sketches. Its almost all Helvetica. Mostly Light with Wingdings.

    Of course I had direction from the boss (who also happens to be my mom, a fine artist in her own right) and accepted and tweaked accordingly.

    What say you of the final product?

    A little smilie goes a long way.

    Hello,
    Please keep in mind - I'm just beginning, so my opinion might mean little.

    - What about adding color to Happy New Year?

    - What about moving the arrows more toward the bottom pointing up to New Year?
    (something doesn't feel right where they are?)

    - Reserve Now and website on 2 different lines?

    Just my initial thoughts, but I do like the design.
    I will love to hear what others' suggest as well.

      I see another flaw with the clock...

      Its just a graphic element with subtle information but if those hands were pointing to 3 the whole grid would be off!

        Oh, I didn't know that was a clock.
        I'm sorry - my bad.

            I did think of one instance where black type on glass does work.
            If this is a store front with a window display back that is white. But it will depend on what else is in the display and the viewing...

            This is what I was looking for, I don't know how to phrase what I meant better. Perhaps, these were for fun. Could you tell me if they are successful in using design elements like negative space, font,...

            Food is one of the worst subjects to photograph. There's a whole art to making food appear appetizing, mostly by doing all kinds of unappetizing things to it. A photog friend of mine was into it for a...
