Got my Hawaii poster framed...
 
was going to post this over on the other forum, but it looks like it's been closed for awhile.

Anyway, I wanted to show this off here... turned out pretty nice, I think:

The framer told me not to go with a mat because the design was so busy. I wasn't sure about it, but I took his advice and I think it was the right call. The thing is pretty big and a mat would have just made it too big, imho.

I tried to find a frame material that reminded me of the natural woods on the island. My first choice would have been wood from a surfboard, but I coudn't find any.

I agree, poor design on that part, but the rest is nice...

I know these types of posters aren't commisioned by the band, are they commisioned by the venues, does anyone know?

This is technically a Pearl Jam poster designed by Brad Klausen who does a lot of their posters.

It's definitely an acquired taste, but I couldn't pass up getting it having been at the show.

You failed to quote the rest of my comment, where I said I did know what it says.

: gives Dusty Bottoms a low grade for reading comprehension :

:wink:

was just trying to help out

dont have to be so mean :|

corianderstem 06-28-2007 11:43 PM

It's not mean! That's why there's a winky! But I'm sorry you thought it was mean.

All I was trying to say is that the font of that poster drives me bonkers.

Don't get me wrong, I like it, just not the "font"...

It reminds a lot of this poster:

http://www.trippystore.com/shop/images/items/po-88.jpg

Which was designed by Bob Masse, which was a one off design, if I'm not mistaken. So I assumed it wasn't comissioned by the band...

So does PJ comission Brad to do designs for each show or just certain shows?

Stop being mean to people.

But that's my thing, man! I live to be a raging bitch all the livelong day.

*sigh*

But if I must stop, I will. It IS the internet and all.

Yes, the internets are for civilized discourse only. Many thanks.

corianderstem 06-29-2007 12:06 AM

Okay. I still think that's the most aggravating font I've ever seen on a poster.

I have to believe that these are commissioned by PJ as they have a custom poster for every show. Klausen doesn't do every one, but there only seem to be one (maybe 2?) for each show, so it has to be an organized system for getting these posters out for each show. I know they become collectible as they are limited runs and sometimes they are signed and numbered. It'd be cool if U2 adopted this sort of thing for their shows as there is such a cool visual philosophy associated with the band's 'vibe'.
