  • Feedback on Punk Poster

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for feedback on a punk poster I'm designing.

    I'm a bit stuck on the positioning of the lettering. I keep trying loads of different ways, but still can't be able to stick to one that I like.

    Out of the 3 here, which do you think is the best?



    Thanks all

    If it's meant to be cut outs for the letters, shouldn't they be different fonts, sizes etc?

    Looks good though. I like it.

      Thank you. It is actually a mixture of 3 subtlety different san serif fonts and they are different sizes. Too many different fonts just looks far too contrived IMHO. Straight from a "How to design a punk poster" instruction book or something..

      But aside from that, I'm more concerned about the positioning of the "OTTOMAN EMPIRE" wording across the bottom. Is it better going on two lines? or swooping across on one line.

        I think it looks better in the first one.

          The thing that bothers me is that the words "IN THE" stand out more than all the rest.

          I like "OTTOMAN EMPIRE" as two lines better.

            I agree with Salsa. The problem is the portrait merges with your letters because it's all black and white. I don't know a lot about punk but when i think of it i think colour, particularly those Buzzcocks singles sleeves, beautiful with that constructivist air, and even the obvious Sex Pistols LP.

              Great work.

              I prefer the 3rd one... but I'd make the word "Ottoman" spaced out a bit more like the word "Anarchy"... so that it extends out a bit more into the black space and doesn't follow the curve of the oval too much.

                i like the 3rd one as well but think the boxes are too perfectly placed & need just a bit more hand pasted-ness.

                  I like the layout of the third one and the letters in the first. Changing the angles on each letter gives more of a rushed look to the piece, which is good.

                  I can understand your reluctance to use different fonts but have you tried playing with the black levels a little on each letter? I think a little variance would be nice.

                    Are you talking about rotating this 45 so the foot is flat on the ground?
                    This might seem a little silly, but if you are taking it into Inkscape, why don't you straighten it there by rotating the...
