    not bad… don’t be afraid to try multiple styles of type on single posters.

    njonas said: i love the font in the second one, but for a show poster it’s a bit too distressed and hard to read. other than that, they both look good.

    yea they ended up re modifing it so people can read it but it wasnt as awesome so they ditched it all togather and came up with a basic black background, a phot, and a crap load of fonts.

    yea i could but i think it looks a bit generic, you every kid with photoshop and a crapload of fonts does that .i’d rather 1 good font than 15 bad ones. no offense to anyone who puts like 5 fonts a poster, it’s just not my style

    i used to print them on normal white paper, then crumple all of them into little balls. when i unfolded them it put a ton of age into the ink and paper, made it look old like you were thinking.

    ok, so fold each one neatly and carry it in your pocket for a day … haha

    printbrigade said: I would reccomend finding a pretty rugged beat up piece of paper or old print (sometimes old maps are awesome). Scan that into photoshop and try and erase whatever is already on it with the clone tool or something. Then put your poster on another layer and set it to “multiple” and then just clean up the edges to match.

    That’s a pretty good idea.

    I used to have some pretty awesome distressed paper brushes for photoshop that gave results like that. ...I wonder what happened to those…

    quick and dirty method
    find a copier, you probably have one, leave the lid up, hit start
    it’ll print out a full black sheet.
    then crumple it all to hell, scratch it up with a razor, use white out, and you get some awesome distress effects. drop it in as it’s own layer, set the opacity to multiply, and ta-da. you get this.

    the second one’s definitely too hard to read.
  • Chaddoesdesign

    iwas thinking indian paint, crumple it up, fold and scan it, the n put the poster on multiply,
    think it would work?
  • Randomentity

    well if you want to get REALLY complicated, do your crumple scan thing, threshold it in PS, drop it into Illy, live trace/expand it, then lay that over your work, select all and subtract/expand that.
    if you’re into vectors….
    or just use the go media destroy and splatters vector packs….
    and i don’t work for them, just saying.
  • Chaddoesdesign

    yea me and my bro chipped in over the summer and bought all the packs, then they released the 7th right after so i bought that, i dont use them too much, only when im swamped, good stuff
    though.
