I got to design a backup poster for a label night with 2 performing bands. (Some other guy applied for the gig before me)

Any feedback or harsh criticisms?

Really slick and clean. Also not bland, you did a nice job OP.

Can you please explain the differences between version 1 and version 2?
>>
>>251064
Thanks!

Before I showed them these two, I showed them a previous version where they told me it felt a bit too busy with the white text and the background image so prominent.

So I added light shadows on all the objects and offered to edits to the background image, v1 is lightly blurred with a brown 20% opaque layer on top of that. v2 the background image isn't blurred nor has it got a brownish opaque layer over it, I just applied a light grain filter.

I butchered that sentence.* I applied two edits* instead of offered. The two edits are v1 and v2

Someone else still found it be to a bit unreadable so.. I kind of don't want it on the logo but since the logo and all the texts are the same I'm forced to use it everywhere
>>
>>251068
Whoever is finding the text unreadable is either blind or has no taste for decent design. 1 and 2 looked great OP sounds like you're working for some blind assholes
>>
>>251068
If you HAVE to use those ghastly blocks I suggest giving them a slight transparency to help them blend into the background, but still make the text pop.

Well it was also one friend who said that. I don't think it's truly a problem. I eventually made one final edit to my original personal version without the blocks: I removed the top line so the other two down below emphasize the text.

As for blind assholes, well funny thing is, the woman says in the version the other guy sent, she likes how it's white and makes his text more readable. Pic related, it looks fucking ugly and he only used one band image..

But she's gonna send everything to the bands and they're gonna pick.Out of respect for the other guy if they pick his, I kind of expect dibs on the next project..

Me again. You did a good job. As for the one your friend made,to be honest it doesn't look that bad but I would call yours excellent. Nice job OP
>>
>>251076
This one.
Use this one.
>>
>>251080
No no, the other guy is not my friend. I don't know the other designer. The friend I mentioned is one of the people who said something about the readability.

i'd skip the foto as a background and you pastel colours. After that, arrange the objects and texts in the grid.
>>
>>251062

Try darkening the background a little bit or highlighting the band pictures. The colors from the background image clash with the images on the front making it hard to tell where to look first. Other than that, pretty clean.
>>
>>251062
I'd put a stronger blur effect on the vackground photo.
>>
>>251077

Try this one with a light dropshadow on the text
>>
Could you please use Capital letters...pls

Zo een dingen zouden mij enorm storen als ik zo'n flyer zou zien.
Een beetje grammatica kan geen kwaad :^)
>>
Maak de achtergrond iets donkerder.
Verder ziet het er prima uit.

De tekst begint met het logo die niet met een hoofdletter begint, en gaat verder op de onderste helft van de poster. In dat stukje heb ik dan geen puntje gedaan omdat het net zo goed als een blurb of excerpt eruit ziet. Persoonlijk vind ik voor dit soort dingen hoofdletters niet nodig.

In de info eronder heb ik het bij de namen wel gedaan maar niet per se voor ieder stukje, omdat er anders teveel hoofdletters bij elkaar zijn. Loopt persoonlijk beter op deze manier als alle letters ongeveer dezelfde hoogte hebben.

Heb uiteindelijk gewoon deze twee opgestuurd dus wat mij betreft is de discussie wel afgelopen :)

>>251077

Al vind ik die pastelsuggestie van een anon hier ook wel leuk. Iets met veel wit en lichte pastelkleurtjes. Ik had in het begin iets soortgelijks, ik stuurde een witte (foto gerelateerd) maar ze kozen voor deze met de foto.
