  • #26243

    there are so many good ones, natascha’s and zero_jme’s and pip’s were some of my faves.

    but there were lots of great ones. i just really love the green on zero_ime’s.

    Sorry I’m not commenting on everybody’s… I know that doesn’t seam fair of me.

    Absinth- That design is so sharp. It looks completely professional. I love it.

    AlexHlavaty- I love the fact that it looks like colored pencils was your medium. That is such a difficult medium to work with. Your first poster with the Jesus ? cracked me up. I liked the \"out of the box\" style. The face card backstage pass rocked. If I were a rock star, I’d have that as my backstage pass

    Douglas- I love the patch on the heart. Great poster!

    Jai-Star I like your flier, how it’s the same image but one is monochromatic. The font you used was awesome, is it hand made?

    Jenn- I think I had an epileptic seizure while scrolling :) The colors and the lines really grab my attention

    Jerf- When I saw some the samples I thought these would take the cake, both the moon man and the cherub. My favorite part about the moon man is the stars that spell out the years. GREAT idea

    Natacha- You already know I love your poster. I think your badges were the most unique out of all the entries

    Pipoka- I want that T-shirt!

    Tion- Very professional, would make a great album cover. The setlist rocked my socks in the area of design

    Zero- When I saw the samples I thought this was the crispest and cleanest of all the entries. It makes me happy. I love the idea of the \"black sunshine\" \"white crosses\" on the back of your T-shirt. Great job, and congrats on second place. Congrats that PMM liked yours best, It really rocked. If I saw this poster at the concert, I’d buy it.

    We should find out how to get trade mark permission from Smashing Pumpkins to use their band name/tour dates to sell fan art and then upload them to sell at places like CafePress

    Congratulation Doubtful-Della !
    Do you think you’ll produce and sell some copies of your poster ?

  • #26248

    Wow. Some of these are absolutely amazing.

    And being honest – the ones where MSPaint was used in lieu of Photoshop are quite hilarious. Sure, they had a great concept, but the execution tended to be quite amusing.

    This has been discussed and details are being worked out as we speak. I’d have to get permission from the band to use their name in selling fan art. Keep an eye out on SPfreaks if everything works out

    I have to agree (Ms paint is sometimes a bad idea) and disagree. Not everybody can afford Photoshop, and not everybody wants or knows how to hack it. But at the same time there are free programs like Gimp out there that are nice, and cheaper versions of Photoshop (Elements) that range around $100.00. But even so, those take a while to learn. You could say that they could have just done it by hand and scanned it in (or taken a photo of it, or just mailed in the entry) But not everybody is comfortable with that or have art supplies just laying around the house.

    In any case, they gave it their best shot, and that’s what counts.

    In MS Paint’s defense…. have you ever seen this video? Shows you just how powerful that little program can be

    Thanks for all of the compliments! I genuinely appreciate it!

    In order to explain some of my reasoning, here’s what I wrote up and sent in along with my submission to explain my design decisions:

    I chose to use green as the prominent color across the series because emerald is the traditional gemstone that represents a 20th anniversary (and green is its corresponding color). Though not a color widely used in the Pumpkins’ historical color palette, I thought green was an excellent choice due to the number of emotions it conveys. It often symbolizes well-being and harmony, which Billy and the Pumpkins seem to have found both spiritually and musically since the resurrection of SP. It also symbolizes growth and endurance, both of which are quite fitting given the current celebration of the band’s past, present, and future.

    Since the Pumpkins’ style is constantly evolving with each release, I thought it was a good idea to infuse new ideas with traditional elements that are hallmarks of the Pumpkins’ presence. While the typography and design may be very clean and concise, I chose to give everything a worn, texturized look to convey the sense of history behind the Pumpkins, and the radiating circles are meant to represent celebration and growth. I also created icons for the Black Sunshine and White Crosses dates, which appear on the poster, flyer, iron-on badge, and t-shirt. And finally, rather than use a traditional SP logo, I chose to adapt it once more. The number 20 fit nicely in the modified heart shape, and I rendered it to look like Billy’s handwriting.
