Promise, no Sabotage…

So, it’s been a multiple drink 2 weeks. Free drinks at Metrotimes, free drinks at Kresge, cheap drinks at the Tap Room.Either way, here’s a sneak preview of what closet records has for a muthafucka…

…plus new EMFE, Pucker Up…EXPLODE! and even more. Just you wait…

…or is it Tsar?

A few days ago you may have noticed an early week last week’s post I made that looked something like this:

Well, I’d like to say that I am now going to be overusing the shit out of this bird for the current Russell Bazaar Ad Campaign… probably because I’m lazy. I’ve already stated that I had used it for the header on the website. Well don’t look now, because if you are too busy to go to the Art Battle… or somehow find yourself at the State Thea… Fillmore… in downtown Detroit. Chances are, you’ll probably get handed one of these…

Simply, flip this flyer over… and enjoy the Bird Czar in all his glory…

You can take away our billboards, but not our birds…

Ransom Notes have Less Fonts…

Bill came up with that title at work. “Ransom Notes have Less Fonts” in case you missed it we counted 9 fonts. Terrible… His other rule about bad design is that you will always find the designer’s name (and in this case contact information) printed on the flyer, however, I’ve withheld that information…

Newer Posters…

Just a couple of newer posters I’d been working on for the new year, I kinda dropped the ball back in 2008 with a steady drop in Click’N’Prints, and a shortage of gigposter designs. Fear not, I have a feeling this going to be a good year for things of this sort…

All of these are type-heavy, but I’m not saying that was a good thing, I just got on a kick of doing a bunch of posters at once. The first 2 are vectors made in illustrator 100%. They can be whatever size you want, any ting you want…

This last one was made in Photoshop, from an old piece of retro clip art I found and did some manipulation to. Bad manipulation by the way… check out the hand holding the knife in the full view and you’ll see what I mean. The “R” in Killers was originally supposed to have a knife shape on the descender, but hey, you can’t have everything. At least I saved myself from redundancy by a little bit. Anyway, it’s all the usual 2 color BS…

Movement 08

Doing some CSS editing for Nev on the Movement 08 blog for the formerly known as Detroit Electronic Music Festival. We’re modeling it after the myspace page… oh, if they only knew that it’s all about branding and consistency. Oh well…
