  • Flyer for Pub Crawl Street Photography

    I'm making a flyer that I'll be printing several 11x14's of and MAYBE 4x6 flyers of. I wanted to post it to get honest and constructive criticism. It's for the local Halloween Pub Crawl called "Neewollah". My goal is to not only spread them around before the event, but to also give them out during the event. When I take someone's pic, I'll give them a flyer to inform them who I am, what I'm doing, and where they can find their photos. I've had input that it needs work, and that's why I'm doing it now, so I have 4 months to get it right (I'll start spreading them around town the beginning of October).

    So...with all that said, any input would be terrific (and I beg you, please no comments like "it makes me want to rip out my eyeballs". Constructive only, please. Things you would change and how.)

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Hmmmmm

    Be a Bush, "a uniter, not divide." I think you have two designs going on there. The outer glow on the text doesn't do anything for me, and it doesn't match the other design below or above. The middle top filtered photo section seems like a different design then the rest. The top and bottom are very clean and organized. Whereas the middle is chaotic and loud. I like the top and bottom design, but if you want to go with something more scary you might want to go with something more in line with what you have, but refine and tweak. Like a bad nightmare or something. It should make your skin crawl.

    Let me see if I can find a link to some references.

        Wow, some real criticism. LoL You rock.

        I posted this on some other forums that I frequent, and they ripped it apart without giving me any advice on how to improve it.

        I'm at work right now, but I definitely plan on checking out those links when I get home.

        Thanks so much.

        Anyone else?

            Thanks for that. Being at work, I didn't have much more than a couple of seconds to find a section as fitting as I could before I had to get to work again.

              Less is more. Even if you removed the gray bars and the background pic, making the background entirely black, would be a good start.

              I like the idea of using all those pictures on bars like that, but they aren't you main message, and it takes a lot of skill to intermix that kind of loudness with your message and not have it conflict. I would run all the photos in a long thin bar on the top and bottom of the flyer. It gives the looker something more to check out. Use an open black center and blow out your logo and make your message prominent.

              Also, GO BIG. Make some blood dripping down the whole entire background, or a big scary face, or a full flyer lighted silhouette of freddy. I would switch the typography to something either A) an easier to read sans (Like Arial), or B) a graphic font that matches the holloween occasion. Wait a minute, itsn't holloween in like, a hundred months?

              That's what I have for now. Just my humble ideas.

              Oh, yeah, and 1 exclamation point gets the point across. Remember, your most important information is YOUR WEBSITE and your GIMICK. Don't be afrait to MAKE STUFF REALLY BIG. You're paying top dollar for that paper...USE IT UP.
              Fondly.

                Are they something you are trying to right click?
                That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
