    Default Hey Board Members...should I or shouldn't I???

    So - my life as a busy designer/father keeps me awake longer than the norm and I love working till the wee hours of the morning, but there's only so much I can do.

    Anyway - there's this contest to design a poster here in Columbus, for the My Chemical Romance / Muse show. Winner gets their poster produced, gets a couple autographed, gets to meet the band, tickets to the show etc...

    Now I really don't care for MCR, I do love muse, but I fancy creating a poster, should I? The big rub is its voted on by the public, and the last time I did this I got SCREWED big time. Some joker got all his myspace friends to vote for his (rather bad) poster. So do I risk the way the contest is run and design one anyway? I'd obviously share with all you lovelies here.

    Its a stupid question I know, just can't decide if its worth my time yet.

    Danke

    Doesn't Enginehouse 13 or whoever do all the posters in Cbus? They'll problably win I'm sure seeing how they've done most of em in the past. I'm not doubting yr artistic capabilities but those contests are usally won before they're announced.

    Dare I say Mr. Nippples has swayed me on his vote alone?

    Well, with the kid and wife fast asleep, looks like I can do it (day off tomorrow and all) I will crank something out in the next hour or two and post it on here then.

    Do you think its slimey of me counting on you guys to vote for me? I'll give you big sloppy Coachella kisses if I win.

    hehe

    Now where did I put that photoshop?

    DO IT, I will totally vote for your poster. And cant we figure out a way to get votes to swing your way with some nice computer tricks?

    Yes, they do a ton of them.

    The contest is defintely open to everyone, but I know what you are saying. To be honest I don't like their work all that much. I prefer posters from designers like The Small Stakes, Heads of State, Patent Pending, Decoder Ring, Aesthetic Apparatus (just got a killer Explosions in the Sky from them), Methane, Delicious, Ames Bros, etc...

    Do it, let us know, we'll all vote. It's something you enjoy doing. Plus another bullet point for the resume.
    I'll take you. I can't promise to stay soft the whole time, though.

    from experience, it's a popularity contest.

    if you have a good design, that's great, but you'll have to be willing to put in the time to get a bunch of people to vote for you, too, or you'll never win.

    you guys are the best - almost finished with a few ideas, they'll be coming right up.

    (Oh and the voting starts Tuesday, I'll put a link up when it gets online, you don't have to vote for mine - but just vote anyways i guess)

    Ok, here's the first one. Its a bit obvious with the macabre themes their record has (skulls and all), but I think the inclusion of the Columbus skyline makes it nice and city specific, need to work on the distressing a bit more.

    and here is the second one - using a line from Famous Last words "Where's Your Heart", the lion image ties in with that, plus the shield shape forms a heart of sorts. I'll change the type later.

    Yes Powell.

    "Once Gary Powell from the Libertines/Dirty Pretty Things asked me where I was from, I said Powell, he said, "where in the fuck is Powell, Ohio, and why did they name a town after me without asking"
