    Thank you all for your concern about the copyright, but that's not the help I was looking for. Besides, this is actually for personal use. I came to this forum to find a perspective on the Art and design,...

    Just need a couple suggestions on this preliminary layout. This is my friend. Yes, he really has those tattoos. no, the ink isn't really that bright. All the photography on the whole thing is done by me using a simple Panasonic LUMIXFZ20 digital SLR.

    Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Freehand, Adobe Bridge. You know the drill.



    Thanks!

    The office, park, gym part seems a little off balance but other than that it seems like a good mass market graphic to catch peoples eyes. the word FITNESS (in your home) disappears against the roof of the car a little, maybe change the colour of the words or reposition the car? I like the tatoo guy, looks cool!

      Definatly lose the car, way to distracting. Also, I don't like the weights sitting on their side like that, esp with 2 other images next to it that I think are right....don't know, the cropping is very abstract to me. On a good note, I love the front design, I think its very catchy, but I lose where to go when viewing the back side, my eyes are all over the place (all i see is "NO MORE EXCUSES) when I should really be seeing (IN HOME PERSONAL TRAINING). It was also kind of hard for me to figure out what this was just off of a few seconds of viewing. Generally on door hangings, you have to be straight to the point with your advertising, it must be clear cut, easy to understand, and generally straight forward. I hope that helps, its looking good too, just needs a couple minor adjustments.

        You said these are door hangers? How do you plan on hanging them on the door? Most will have a 1 3/4" hole at the top with a slanted slit.

          I really appreciate the feedback, everyone. Especially FRAG.

          I'm so used to nightclub and Hotel design that I have a tendency to be kind of busy. Here is the newest revision of the back, minus a better weights picture that I have an appointment to snap today. Just immageint there's some great picture there.

          Better?

            You should use pantone 803 and 806 instead of yellow and magenta when printing it. give it a super boost!

              its looking alot better, im not to fond of the empty space now though without that picture, maybe find another one to fill its spot, or center the 2 pictures you have now and motion blur the sides out. Also, keep in mind what TPerkins said, your gonna need to watch out for where your die cut will be. Other then that I think it looks good, you def have the type saying what it clearly is.

                I didn't think anyone knew that kind of trick but me, heh.

                Actually, I'm running this on a four color press with about 30 other jobs, so spot colors aren't an option this time around. Great advice though! Thanks.

                  The tattoo picture is so good the client is thinking about making it a rack card instead of a door hanger so we don't disturb it with a dye cut. I was aware of it from the start anyway, (this is what I do for a living, heh), these designs are just preliminary layout and concept drafts.

                  Good to hear it's looking better, thanks for the feedback, again.


                  Any more?
